Lanre Oyebanjo and Gavin Tomlin are both out until October for Reds.
Striker Ryan Taylor hopes to have recovered from an ankle knock suffered in last Saturday's friendly against Coventry to be available for Oxford.
In five pre-season games Oxford only lost once, 1-0 to Woking. Last Saturday they drew 0-0 with League One Coventry City.THE FORM GUIDE
Reds played six pre-season games, winning three and losing three.
VIEW FROM THE BENCH
: "I don't think we could have had a much tougher start. Oxford have brought in some good players and they finished last season well. It's always a tough place to go but we will be ready and the lads cannot wait to get going on Saturday."Mark Yates

In the 2011-12 League Two campaign, Reds beat the U's 4-1 at home and drew 1-1 in the reverse fixture on January 2, 2012 thanks to a late headed equaliser by Tyrone Barnett.
