Oxford boss Chris Wilder has no injury or suspension problems to contend with when his side host relegation battlers Hereford.

Damien Batt is set to continue at right-back following his return to the starting line-up against Morecambe last week after a three-match ban, keeping Ben Purkiss on the bench.

Winger Asa Hall also looks set to retain his place in the side after bagging a brace in the 3-0 win over the Shrimps, while striker Steve MacLean is also set to continue in attack along with Tom Craddock and top scorer James Constable.

That means Simon Hackney and Alfie Potter will again be among the substitutes.

The U`s will be looking to continue their run of four games unbeaten in the league, and a win could take them into the play-off places.

Captain Janos Kovacs returns for Hereford.

Centre-back Kovacs missed Tuesday`s 1-1 draw at home to Northampton as he served a one-match suspension picked up during last weekend`s stalemate against Burton.

And his return leaves manager Jamie Pitman with a welcome selection decision to make at the heart of his defence.

Striker Jake Jervis has returned to parent club Birmingham after his month-long loan stay came to an end.

Otherwise, aside from regular absentees Dan Connor and Ryan Valentine (both hip), Pitman has a full compliment of players to select from.

"Everyone`s in full health," the Bulls boss told Press Association Sport. "Everyone`s ready to go so as long as it stays like that we`re at full-strength again apart from the long-term injuries."
