Cambridge forward Jabo Ibehre has been ruled out of his side’s Sky Bet League Two clash with Oldham on Saturday after he sustained a concussion.
Left-back Dan Jones also remains a doubt for Colin Calderwood’s side with an ongoing foot problem.
However, the manager is hopeful Kyle Knoyle will not require surgery on his shoulder after the injury he sustained during his side’s draw against Newport on August 10.
Calderwood has not yet set a date for Knoyle’s return after the defender saw a specialist last week.
Oldham duo Christopher Missilou and Mohamed Maouche are back in contention.
The midfield pair missed the midweek draw with Exeter due to injury but could return for the trip to Cambridge.
Manager Laurent Banide may have some selection issues with a fully-fit squad available.
David Wheater is expected to continue in defence after making his return from injury against Exeter.
