Wycombe manager Gary Waddock is poised to name an unchanged side for the derby day visit of Oxford.

Defender Dave Winfield has missed the last two games with a hamstring strain sustained in the 2-0 win over Morecambe on the opening day of the season and the former Aldershot man is still struggling.

He will not be rushed back so Leon Johnson will continue to deputise.

Left-back Andy Sandell is fit now after missing pre-season following his move from Aldershot while forward Stuart Beavon is close to a return after breaking his leg at the back-end of last season.

Captain Gareth Ainsworth is set to make his 500th career appearance as the Chairboys look for a first league win over their near neighbours since February 2006.

Oxford boss Chris Wilder is also set to name an unchanged squad.

United are yet to win a league game since gaining promotion from the Blue Square Premier but Wilder is confident his side can earn a valuable victory against the npower League Two promotion favourites.

He told the club's official website: "I don't think there will be any changes unless something happens in the next two days.

"The players have done great over the past three games so we need to notch it up a touch.

"We are going to have to play well and we understand that but there won't be any surprises from us."

Defender Rhys Day will not feature as he is still recovering from a knee injury.
