Suspensions for Wilson and Eastmond
Brian Wilson and Craig Eastmond have both picked up ten bookings recently and each received two match bans.
Wilson has already missed the Peterborough game, so serves the second game of his ban against Tranmere this weekend.
Midfielder Eastmond received his tenth booking in that game at Posh and will miss the Stevenage trip as well as the game against Rovers.
Youngster Frankie Kent is added to the U's squad, as both teams chase points to keep them away from the bottom four.
He comes in to provide defensive cover, with loanee Alie Sesay returning to Leicester on Friday morning.
U's: Walker, Cousins, Olufemi, Dickson, Wynter, Okuonghae, Kent, Eastman, Bean, David Wright, Gilbey, Sanderson, Sears, Szmodics, Drey Wright, Massey, Vose, Watt, Morrison, Ibehre
