Oxford without James Henry for FA Cup fourth-round replay against Newcastle

James Henry will miss Oxford’s FA Cup fourth-round replay at home to Newcastle on Tuesday night.

The winger was forced off during the 2-1 Sky Bet League One win over Blackpool on Saturday and will not be risked, having undergone scans on a thigh injury.

Manager Karl Robinson has confirmed summer signing Dan Agyei will take Henry’s place in the squad as he pushes for a rare first-team appearance.

Midfielder Anthony Forde is back in training following a punctured lung but will not be in contention until the weekend.

Newcastle head coach Steve Bruce will make limited changes for the trip south following the original goalless draw at St James’ Park last month.

Defenders Florian Lejeune and Fabian Schar are expected to start, as is midfielder Matty Longstaff, after all three sat out Saturday’s 0-0 Premier League draw with Norwich.

However, loan signings Danny Rose and Valentino Lazaro, who were handed debuts at the weekend, are unavailable as they were registered after the initial game.

In addition, defenders Emil Krafth (ankle), Jetro Willems (knee), Paul Dummett and Javier Manquillo (both hamstring), midfielder Jonjo Shelvey (hamstring) and strikers Andy Carroll (hip), Dwight Gayle and (hamstring) Yoshinori Muto (knock) are still sidelined.
