Top scorer James Constable returns to the starting line-up as Oxford United attempt to halt a run of two successive defeats with the visit of high-flying Torquay United.

The striker replaces Scott Rendell after spending two games on the substitutes’ bench in one of three changes to the XI from the 2-1 defeat at Northampton Town on Good Friday.

The other two alterations are enforced, with Harry Worley coming in at centre half for Michael Duberry, who is serving a one-game suspension after being sent off at Sixfields.

Peter Leven is also missing with a leg injury picked up at Northampton, so Andy Whing deputises in midfield.

Oli Johnson returns to the squad after missing two games with a sore hamstring and adds attacking options to a bench which includes Rendell and Jon-Paul Pittman.

Oxford Utd: Clarke, Batt, Worley, Wright, Davis, Chapman, Whing, Hall, Montano, Constable, Morgan.

Substitutes: Tonkin, Wilson, Johnson, Rendell, Pittman.
