OXFORD United's squad was boosted by the return of three players to training today.

Shandon Baptiste travelled to Bolton Wanderers on Tuesday, but ultimately sat out the goalless draw after feeling a reaction to a knee problem he suffered on Saturday.

Jamie Mackie and Elliott Moore did not travel north after back spasms.

But all were due to take part in at least some of the session today.

It gives them a chance to be available for Saturday's trip to Lincoln City, although their availability depends on how they respond.

Talking before training, United head coach Karl Robinson said: "Certainly Shandon should train today.

"We’re looking at seeing how Jamie and Elliott respond to light training today.

"I wouldn’t be surprised (if they made it for Saturday)."
