KARL Robinson is weighing up changes to Oxford United's starting line-up for the trip to Bristol Rovers.

The head coach suggested a shake-up in the wake of Tuesday's 4-2 defeat to Burton Albion.

He said: "Some of the players’ performances weren’t of a level they have been recently and that’s something we’ll change at the weekend."

Winger Tariqe Fosu is a contender to return after recovering from a hamstring injury, while Elliott Moore could be promoted to a defence which looked shaky in midweek.

United will assess Alex Gorrin (tight hamstring) and need to check on Matty Taylor's condition after the striker unexpectedly played the full 90 minutes on Tuesday.

Shandon Baptiste, whose last league appearance came at Rovers ten months ago, is available to be named on the bench.


Bristol Rov: from Jaakkola, Hare, Kilgour, Davies, Craig, Leahy, Ogogo, Clarke, Upson, Smith, Clarke-Harris, Van Stappershoef, Menayese, Kelly, Sercombe, Rodman, Bennett, Nichols, Adeboyejo.

Oxford Utd: from Eastwood, Cadden, Dickie, Moore, Ruffels, Brannagan, Gorrin, Henry, Woodburn, Fosu, Taylor, Mackie, Forde, Hall, Baptiste, Hanson, Mousinho, Long, Stevens.
