Oxford vs Doncaster preview
Last Updated: 26/04/19 12:12pm
Oxford will have two players back from suspension for Saturday's game against Doncaster but a ban means Ahmed Kashi may have played his last game for the club.
Goalkeeper Simon Eastwood served a one-match ban in Monday's 3-2 win at Shrewsbury, while Marcus Browne completed a three-game suspension. But Kashi, on loan from Troyes, was sent off in the 36th minute against Shrewsbury and will miss Oxford's two remaining games.
Karl Robinson's players have been enjoying a rest this week as he handed them three days off following the win, only returning to training on Friday.
Midfielder Alfie Beestin is a doubt for Doncaster after feeling his hamstring in training on Thursday but Grant McCann said he otherwise had no new injury concerns. Ben Whiteman is available after featuring as a substitute against Accrington on Tuesday, a step up in his recovery from an ankle injury.
James Coppinger is also in contention to return after missing the Accrington game. Defender Joe Wright (ankle) remains sidelined.
Oxford have won five of their last six home league games against Doncaster (D1), scoring 14 and conceding just two.
Doncaster have recorded just one win in their last 10 league encounters with Oxford (D3 L6), a 2-0 home victory in September 2003.
Oxford have won six of their last seven league games (D1) and are unbeaten in eight (W6 D2) - the U's last went longer without defeat in the EFL between March and September 2015 (run of 14 games).
Doncaster Rovers have won just one of their last nine away league games (D3 L5), a 1-0 victory against Bradford.
No League One player has registered more assists than Doncaster's James Coppinger this season (13 - level with Marcus Maddison of Peterborough).
