Peterborough boss Steve Evans has no fresh injury worries for the League One clash with Oxford.

Evans has spoken this week about the decision he faces in goal after fit-again Conor O’Malley impressed by keeping a clean sheet in the Checkatrade Trophy victory over Exeter in midweek.

The 24-year-old Irishman, who has had to play second fiddle to Aaron Chapman, made nine first-team starts last season.

Posh go into the game sitting fourth in the table and are unbeaten in their last seven games in all competitions.

Oxford could be without top scorer James Henry, who missed training on Friday due to illness.

But Ricky Holmes is back available again after sitting out the last four games due to a back problem.

Cameron Brannagan picked up his 10th yellow card of the season during last week’s FA Cup victory over Plymouth but, because it was his second caution of the competition, he will serve a one-match suspension in the third round.

Samir Carruthers, Shandon Baptiste,Tony McMahon andRob Hall all remain sidelined.
