James Henry could return from injury for Oxford

Oxford expect to have top scorer James Henry available for the visit of Sky Bet League One leaders Wycombe.

Forward Henry, who has hit 10 goals this season, was an unused substitute for the midweek Carabao Cup quarter-final with Manchester City having been suffering with a thigh issue.

U’s boss Karl Robinson could recall defender John Mousinho and midfielder Chris Cadden after they were rested for the 3-1 defeat to City.

Midfielders Anthony Forde (ribs), Jamie Hanson (hamstring) and George Thorne (shoulder) and on-loan Liverpool forward Ben Woodburn (foot) remain out, along with goalkeeper Simon Eastwood (knee).

Wycombe boss Gareth Ainsworth appears to have no fresh selection concerns ahead of the short trip to the Kassam Stadium.

The Chairboys are seven points clear at the top of the table on the back of a 12-game unbeaten league run dating back to September.

Ainsworth could stick with the starting XI which won 2-0 against Burton last weekend.

Forwards Scott Kashket and Adebayo Akinfenwa are among the players pushing for starts.
