Barnet caretaker manager Giuliano Grazioli will check on striker Steve Kabba ahead of the visit of Oxford.

Kabba missed out on the trip to Gillingham on Saturday after picking up a knock but was not missed as the Bees recorded a 4-2 win to give their hopes of survival a huge boost.

Izale McLeod scored a hat-trick at Priestfield but will not be partnered by Jack Midson as the forward is on loan from Oxford.

On-loan Chelsea goalkeeper Sam Walker was back between the sticks after suspension, while midfielder Mark Hughes has also now completed his ban.

On-loan Southampton midfielder Anthony Pulis is fit after an Achilles injury and is available.

A win for the Bees could see them climb out of the drop zone.

Oxford will be without defenders Jimmy Sangare and Mitchell Hanson for their trip to Underhill.

Sangare, making his first home start of the campaign, hobbled out of Saturday`s goalless draw with promoted Chesterfield with a broken metatarsal, which rules him out for the remainder of the campaign.

He was replaced by Hanson who was then duly stretchered off nine minutes after the break following a clash of heads which required six or seven stitches.

But the U`s are boosted in defence by the return of Harry Worley who completed a two-match ban against the Spireites.

Midfielder Simon Heslop will again be assessed having missed out at the weekend with a dead leg sustained against Accrington.

It remains to be seen whether on-loan Ryan Burge will be available having been recalled by Doncaster last week, but only for training according to United boss Chris Wilder.
