Oxford manager Chris Wilder could include new signing Jennison Myrie-Williams in his squad for the home clash with Cheltenham.

The 22-year-old winger has signed on a free after being released by Scottish Premier League side St Johnstone at the beginning of January and looks set to be included among the substitutes to face one of his former club's.

Wilder has no fresh injury worries to contend and is unlikely to make many changes to his starting line-up.

Striker Alfie Potter returned from a shoulder problem to face Shrewsbury in midweek but will remain on the bench following his 19-minute cameo.

Steve MacLean and Tom Craddock will continue to support centre-forward James Constable, who scored twice in the 3-1 win, in attack.

Martin Riley comes back into contention as Cheltenham look to continue their impressive away form.

Riley (hamstring) has been missing since the 2-1 triumph at Southend at the start of January - a result which is part of a seven-match unbeaten run away from home for the Robins.

The influential centre-back has been training all week and comes into the fold as manager Mark Yates looks for a response from his charges following Tuesday`s woeful 2-1 defeat at home to Lincoln.

Riley`s return leaves just Andy Gallinagh on the sidelines, with the defender having undergone a successful double hernia operation on Tuesday which is expected to keep him out of action for around three to four weeks.

Yates admits he is considering tactical, system and formation changes for the trip to the Kassam Stadium to ensure he does not see a repeat of Cheltenham`s midweek performance.
