Josh Low stands a chance of returning to the fold as Cheltenham look to bounce back from Saturday`s disappointing defeat when neighbours Oxford come to town.

Town put in a laboured display as they slumped to a 2-0 home defeat to Bury and Low could provide a timely boost upon his return from the calf strain that has ruled him out of the last two games.

The midfielder will train with the rest of his team-mates on Monday before manager Mark Yates, who has no new injury problems, makes a decision on his fitness.

Yates was furious with the manner of Saturday`s loss and he is calling for a big response from his side, with one or two changes not out of the question.

"We have to be ready for Tuesday and I know I certainly am. I`m delighted we have a chance to put our last game right with a match this quickly," the Town boss told the club`s official website, while also revealing he and his team were in on Sunday to run over a DVD of the Bury defeat.

"There is no crisis here but we do need to address what was a poor performance. The players owe themselves, the club and the supporters to do better than they did at the weekend."

Oxford will be without James Constable.

The striker was sent off in the 1-1 draw with Crewe at the weekend after receiving two yellow cards and will miss the trip to Whaddon Road with Jack Midson possibly deputising.

Manager Chris Wilder's only injury doubt is midfielder Josh Payne who suffered an eye injury at Gresty Road but is expected to be fit.

Damien Batt is still out so Mark Creighton and Harry Worley will continue in defence and Rhys Day could be back in contention for a place on the bench.

Jake Wright needs another week in training before he can return to the squad while midfielder Simon Clist played in the reserves this week and could force his way back into the squad.
