James Constable: Returns to the fray

James Constable: Returns to the fray

Team news for Saturday's League Two clash between Oxford United and Southend United at Kassam Stadium.

Oxford will have Dave Kitson available when they welcome Southend to the Kassam after the striker served his one-match ban for five yellow cards.

Manager Chris Wilder also has fellow forward James Constable back in contention after a good week of training. The former Kidderminster striker made an appearance from the bench at Hartlepool last weekend, just three weeks after chipping a bone in his foot.

Also available again is Max Crocombe. The goalkeeper had been sidelined with a shoulder injury but looks set to sit on the bench after on-loan shotstopper Shwan Jalal returned to parent club Bournemouth.

Captain Jake Wright and Jon Meades are still sidelined while Andy Whing serves the second match of his three-game suspension.

Southend manager Phil Brown can call on the services of Ben Coker for the trip to Oxford.

The versatile Coker is available again after completing a one-match suspension for the red card he received in the 1-1 draw against Bury.

Striker Barry Corr and on-loan Fulham forward Cauley Woodrow both enhanced their claims for a promotion to Brown's starting XI after scoring for the reserves in midweek.

Midfielder Marc Laird (hamstring) is still two weeks away from a return to training.
