U's men on the road to recovery."It will give us real options up front in the coming games and I'm delighted about that."
"Any side in the division would miss such quality players and the team have worked exceptionally hard in their absence.
"We have spent a large number of weeks without four key attacking players.
"It's great news that we are getting these players back and fit again," Joe told the official website on Tuesday afternoon.
And there was further good news as Sanchez Watt also nears a return to action after being out of action since the end of August.
The three of them have missed recent matches through injury, but will soon be available to Joe to select for those games.
The match against Town will see the returning trio of Jabo Ibehre, Gavin Massey and Freddie Sears get much needed game time as the U's prepare to attack their next set of fixtures in the lead up to Christmas.
The U's quest to get their squad back up to full strength will take a further step forward on Tuesday afternoon, as they take on Ipswich Town in a behind closed doors friendly.
