LUKE Garbutt is targeting Oxford United’s upcoming cup games to get back into their side in Sky Bet League One.

Boss Karl Robinson is due to shuffle his pack for tonight’s visit to Wycombe Wanderers in the Checkatrade Trophy.

There could also be some changes on Saturday in the Emirates FA Cup at home to Forest Green Rovers.

Garbutt is one of those players on the fringes looking for a way into a team which has been settled during a six-game unbeaten league run.

He said: “It’s hard sitting out not playing, I don’t like that, but obviously the results have picked up and the defence has done well.

“From my point of view trying to get back into the team has been difficult, so this week I just need to use as my opportunity to get some more minutes and hopefully impress the manager.”

Victory at Adams Park would send the U’s through to the second round, while they would otherwise need to match Northampton Town’s result against Fulham Under 21s to progress.

Robinson intends to play a strong side, but the likes of Jamie Mackie, Ricky Holmes and Tony McMahon are expected to be rested.

It will open up chances for young players, with striker Harvey Bradbury in line to be named on the bench for the first time.

Whoever plays, United will be looking to avoid a repeat of Saturday, where they let a 3-0 lead slip as Scunthorpe scored from three set pieces in six minutes to earn a draw.

Garbutt said: “Wycombe’s major strengths are they are direct, in your face and use set pieces as a weapon for them to score goals.

“It will be a good test for us.”
