Loan defender included in Good Friday squad.
The Rotherham full back has had to bide his time over the last two weeks, as the U's had a free weekend last Saturday due to the postponement against Swindon.

The game also sees Tosin Olufemi travel for the first time since returning to fitness after nine months out with an injury sustained in pre-season.
Tony Humes' side are also boosted by the return to fitness of Karleigh Osborne, who has missed recent matches through injury.
