Oxford have been boosted by the return of two key players ahead of their clash with Dagenham this weekend.
Winger Sean Rigg has trained all week having missed the last four matches with a hamstring problem while defender Michael Raynes rejoined his team-mates on Thursday after a hip injury.
Fit-again captain Jake Wright will also be in the squad against the Daggers as a number of Chris Wilder's senior players return to action.
But despite the trio's return United are still without Alfie Potter, Andy Whing and Jon Meades who are recovering from surgery and are not due back until February.
Scott Doe will miss Dagenham's trip due to suspension.
The defender collected his fifth booking of the season in the 2-0 win over Wycombe last time out and duly serves an automatic one-match ban, with Luke Wilkinson set to step in.
Recent loan signing Lawson D'Ath is available to make his Daggers debut having missed out against Wanderers due to an ankle problem.
Midfielder Billy Bingham has been ruled out for four weeks with the knee injury he sustained against AFC Wimbledon.
