Josh Ruffels absent for Oxford’s tie with Watford

Oxford will be without defender Josh Ruffels for the Carabao Cup visit of Watford.

The left-back is having scans to determine the extent of the shoulder injury he suffered at Lincoln on Saturday.

An X-ray confirmed Ruffels had not broken a bone, but he will still miss out on Tuesday night.

Rob Atkinson starts a three-match ban after his red card at the weekend, unless Oxford’s appeal is upheld.

Watford remain without a host of first-team players.

Gerard Deulofeu is still out with a knee injury, although he is expected back training later this week.

Daryl Janmaat, Isaac Success, Troy Deeney, Andre Gray, Will Hughes and Adam Masina are still sidelined.

Etienne Capoue, Roberto Pereyra and Danny Welbeck are also not yet fit.
