Darren Patterson has warned his players to be on the look-out for Kidderminster hot-shot James Constable when they travel to Aggborough today.

The former Walsall striker has netted 11 time in all competitions this seasons.

Oxford boss Patterson, who lives just 20 minutes away from Kidderminster, knows all about the England C international's predatory skills, having recommended him to former manager Jim Smith last season.

"I have seen them many times and they are a decent side," said Patterson.

"They have some good forwards and one of those is James Constable.

"We approached him last season and he has gone on and done very well.

"But, at the time they were doing well and I think he was reluctant to move."

On-loan strikers Ashley Barnes and Matthew Green are added to United's squad, though Patterson is not revealing whether they will start.

Phil Gilchrist and Matt Day are still sidelined, while United will be without Rob Duffy who starts a three-match suspension for his sending off against Ebbsfleet United.

Gary Twigg and Joel Ledgister are back in full training, however.

Patterson, who is unbeaten in his first two games, is keen to keep up the run.

"Although they have good pace out wide, like any team in this league they are beatable," he said.

"We have worked hard on what we are going to do when we have the ball and when we don't.

"In the last two games the players have been clapped off and I was disappointed not to win the home game last week (against Ebbsfleet).

"The lads have given all they have got and if we can just add a little quality to that then we are very confident we can get a positive result.

"I don't go into any game thinking anything other than we can win. We have our game plan and the lads were as bright in training yesterday as I've seen them.

"These two additions (Barnes and Green) will hopefully bring in a little bit of extra quality."

Kidderminster welcome back Scott Bevan who takes over in goal from Chris Mackenzie, who has returned to Shrewsbury after a two-month loan spell.

Simon Russell could return, while centre half Stuart Whitehead is available again after suspension.
