                                                    Team news

                                                    Duberry blow for U's Oxford will be without the suspended Michael Duberry for their npower League Two clash with Torquay.

                                                    Duberry was sent off in the dying stages of the 2-1 defeat at Northampton on Good Friday for two bookable offences and serves a one-match ban for the visit of the Gulls.

                                                    Andrew Whing, who dropped out of the starting line-up to accommodate Duberry at Northampton, is likely to return to the centre of defence in place of the veteran.

                                                    Peter Leven was stretchered off with a serious-looking leg injury at Sixfields and is set to miss out.

                                                    Harry Worley picked up an ankle injury in the 2-0 win at Accrington recently and remains a doubt, while Tony Capaldi is close to making his debut after shrugging off a knee complaint.

                                                    Tom Craddock (knee) is also on the mend but will not be available to face the Cobblers and Alfie Potter is out for the season with a broken ankle.

                                                    Torquay are sweating over the fitness of Rene Howe and Damon Lathrope.

                                                    Striker Howe has been carrying a knee injury of late, but played 80 minutes of the 1-0 victory over Accrington on Good Friday, while midfielder Lathrope is nursing an ankle knock but managed 66 minutes of the win against Stanley.

                                                    Both players are unlikely to train before the trip to the Kassam Stadium and the Gulls will make a late decision on whether or not to include the duo in their matchday squad.

                                                    On-loan Walsall forward Ryan Jarvis will be hoping for a recall should Lathrope not be fit to feature, while Taiwo Atieno is a ready replacement for Howe if he fails to make it.

                                                    Atieno leaves it late for Gulls Substitute Taiwo Atieno earned second-placed Torquay a valuable 2-2 draw at play-off chasing Oxford thanks to a dramatic last-minute equaliser.

                                                    With Ryan Clarke nursing an injury, Atieno tried his luck with a 20-yard shot which the U's goalkeeper was unable to keep out despite a valiant dive.

                                                    Until that moment Oxford had recovered well from being a goal down at half-time thanks to a stirring second-half performance.

                                                    Rene Howe's 14th goal of the season gave the Gulls the lead in the 17th minute. And Martin Ling's side should have doubled their advantage in their first attack of the second half when Howe rounded Clarke only for Harry Worley to block his shot on the goalline.

                                                    Adam Chapman then scored direct from a corner to equalise for Oxford just before the hour mark. And Cristian Montano, on loan from West Ham, scored his first goal at the Kassam Stadium with a thumping header from Damian Batt's cross after 68 minutes to put the hosts in front.
