Wycombe v Oxford preview
Last Updated: 14/09/18 12:37pm
Skipper Matt Bloomfield is back in contention for Wycombe against Oxford.
The midfielder missed last weekend's 3-2 loss at Charlton due to the concussion protocol but is now eligible to play. Adam El-Abd, Nathan Tyson and Darius Charles remain injured for the Chairboys, who are chasing their first home win of the season.
Jamie Hanson serves the final match of his three-game ban for Oxford. But Gavin Whyte returns to the fray after his goalscoring antics with Northern Ireland.
Samir Carruthers and Simon Eastwood (finger) remain out but could be back within three weeks. Rob Hall's absence could stretch into the new year, though, following his knee operation.
This will be the first meeting in the third tier of English football since the 2000/01 campaign in which Wycombe completed the league double over Oxford.
Oxford have won on three of the last four league trips to Adams Park, but did lose on their last visit in December 2015 (1-2).
Wycombe have managed just one victory in their opening seven games of this league campaign (D3 L3), with the Chairboys both scoring and conceding in each of their last five.
Karl Robinson has picked up just four points from a possible 24 as Oxford United manager on the road (W1 D1 L6), conceding 18 goals in total (avg 2.25 goals per game).
Adebayo Akinfenwa has failed to score in each of his last 13 league games - his longest goal drought since March 2016 (15 games).
