Wigan’s four-game winning run in League One came to an end on Saturday afternoon, as they were held to a goalless draw by Cheltenham, which saw them knocked off the top of the division by Rotherham United.
The Latics are now second in the table, boasting 55 points from 25 matches, but they are only a point behind leaders Rotherham with two games in hand, while the promotion hopefuls are a point clear of third-placed Sunderland with four games in hand on the Black Cats.
As a result, Leam Richardson‘s side are in a strong position in the table, unbeaten in the third tier since the end of October, while they have been victorious in six of their last eight league fixtures.
Wigan have the best away record in League One this season, but they have dropped points in five of their 12 home league games in 2021-22 and will now welcome an Oxford side that scored seven in an extraordinary victory over Gillingham at the weekend.
The Latics, who are bidding to return to the Championship at the second time of asking, ran out 3-2 winners over Oxford when the two teams locked horns in the reverse fixture earlier this season.
Wigan boss Richardson made one change to his starting XI for the clash with Cheltenham, as Josh Magennis came in for Stephen Humphrys, and the former is expected to retain his spot here.
As a result, it would not be a surprise to see an unchanged side from the weekend, with recent arrival Graeme Shinnie retaining his spot in the middle of the park.
Former Manchester United youngster Will Keane has scored 14 League One goals for the Latics this season, meanwhile, and he will again feature in an attacking area.
As for Oxford, head coach Robinson will again be without the services of James Henry, Jamie Hanson and Alex Gorrin through injury.
Herbie Kane is available after serving a suspension, but it would not be a surprise to see the same XI that took to the field for the first whistle against Gillingham on Saturday.
Taylor will again lead the line for the visitors, while Brannagan, fresh from his four-goal showing in Kent, should be joined by Marcus McGuane in the middle of midfield.
