Scunthorpe go into the match looking to bounce back from last week’s home loss to Plymouth, while the U’s were 3-0 winners at home to Shrewsbury Town.
A victory for Stuart McCall’s side could see them climb up from 17th to 14th in the table, while the visitors presently sit 21st.
McCall confirmed Stephen Humphrys (hamstring) is a doubt after coming off during last week's loss to Plymouth and only training partly on Thursday.
Lee Novak also took a knock late on in the game against Plymouth and hasn't trained but will be given time to recover ahead of Saturday too.
The game will probably come too soon for Funso Ojo (hamstring) and Matthew Lund (knee), while Josh Morris (jaw), Rory Watson (arm) and Matt Gilks (knee) remain absent.
The Iron drew 1-1 at Oxford United back in March, with Ivan Toney on target, while in August last year we defeated them 1-0 through a Josh Morris goal.

Our full record against Oxford United is as follows:
ONE TO WATCH...
Gavin Whyte is Oxford’s top scorer so far this season with five goals.
United signed the Ulster Footballer of the Year from Crusaders in July 2018.
Blessed with pace to spare and an eye for goal, Whyte was on the radar of several EFL clubs, but it was the U’s who captured his signature.
Whyte, who was also the Northern Ireland Football Writers’ Association Player of the Year for 2017/18, has been capped for Northern Ireland U21s and also called up for the national team squad.
