Last time out, United drew 1-1 away at Rochdale after going behind during the second-half.
Substitute Duane Holmes came off the bench to earn an equaliser for his side, but they were unable to grab all three points.
Meanwhile, the U’s have won both of their opening league games, including a 3-0 victory versus Portsmouth last Saturday.
In his pre-match interview, Graham Alexander confirmed right-back Jordan Clarke (thigh) will once again miss out, despite returning to training.
Kyle Wootton will also not be involved for the game against Oxford. He picked a hamstring injury on Tuesday.
It was a stoppage-time winner from Phil Edwards of Oxford to win the game late on for them in March at the Kassam Stadium.
Scunthorpe took the lead through Paddy Madden in the first 45 minutes, before the U’s hit back with two second-half strikes to turn it around and take a 2-1 lead.

Our full record against Oxford United is as follows:
ONE TO WATCH…
Having already tallied up three assists in the league, Jack Payne is a player the Iron defence need to be cautious of.
The attacking midfielder won promotion to the Premier League with Huddersfield Town last year, but decided to come to League One on loan.
Payne came through the Southend United youth system and was their top scorer in this division with nine goals during the 2015/16 season, before earning himself a move to the Terriers.
