                                                    Team news

                                                    Leven likely to return Peter Leven could be welcomed back into Oxford's matchday squad when Rotherham travel to the Kassam Stadium.

                                                    The midfielder has missed two weeks of action with a shoulder problem but returned to training this week and the Us will offer him a late fitness test to determine his eligibility to face the Millers.

                                                    Top scorer James Constable will complete the final game of a three-match suspension for his red card in the derby clash with Swindon.

                                                    He will be joined on the sidelines by Damian Batt who serves a one-match ban for his dismissal in the 2-1 defeat to Bradford.

                                                    Tom Craddock (knee), fellow striker Jon-Paul Pittman (hamstring) and winger Alfie Potter (ankle) are all out as is defender Tony Capaldi who has suffered from a multitude of injuries since arriving in the summer.

                                                    Rotherham have no new injury concerns ahead of the crunch clash.

                                                    The Millers' play-off hopes suffered another dent after Tuesday's 1-0 home defeat by Torquay left them five points adrift of the seventh-placed U's with 10 games to go.

                                                    Veteran defender Richard Naylor is still missing as he battles a knee problem that has kept him out of recent games and is a couple of weeks away from a return to training.

                                                    New arrival Sam Hoskins will be in the squad following his loan move from Southampton, which runs until the end of the season, but the striker is unlikely to displace Lewis Grabban or Alex Revell in attack.

                                                    U's sink Millers Goals either side of half-time by Scott Rendell and Asa Hall gave Oxford a vital 2-1 win over play-off rivals Rotherham.

                                                    Rendell ran onto Peter Leven's pass over the top to open the scoring with a cool low finish in stoppage time at the end of the first half.

                                                    And Rotherham were two down seven minutes after the break when Hall fired high into the net from Andrew Whing's cutback.

                                                    Ben Pringle and Sam Hoskins missed good opportunities for the visitors before they were given a lifeline with an 83rd-minute penalty.

                                                    Adam Chapman tripped Jason Taylor just inside the box and Lewis Grabban buried the spot-kick into the bottom left corner.

                                                    Michael Duberry twice headed off the line from Danny Harrison in the closing minutes, while Oxford also went close when Dean Morgan's looping header was nodded off the line by Michael Raynes.
