Thomas on track to feature for Oxford

Oxford hope to have leading scorer Wes Thomas available for the visit of Bristol Rovers.

Thomas pulled out of the warm-up at Charlton last weekend because of a tight hamstring, but is back in full training.

Jon Obika had been drafted into the starting XI against the Addicks, only to then be forced off with his own hamstring problem so he will miss out, but Albanian forward Agon Mehmeti has trained all week and should return.

Midfielder Ivo Pekalski has resumed training after his long-term knee injury, along with forward Rob Hall.

Defensive duo Daniel Leadbitter and Tom Lockyer could make their Rovers returns.

Leadbitter has not played since Boxing Day because of a hamstring injury, while skipper Lockyer has missed the last two games after picking up a knock in the 3-1 win over Bradford.

Rovers boss Darrell Clarke has hinted that the pair are set to bolster a squad which lost at home to Shrewsbury last weekend.

New signings Kyle Bennett and Bernard Mensah are also under consideration for first Rovers starts, although Clarke is unlikely to play both of them.
