New U's chief Paul Lambert will be looking to get his reign as U's boss off to a winning start.
County will be looking to build on a good start to the League One campaign.
Lambert Looking For Results
The Scotsman said: 'I`d love us to play brilliantly in every game and play good football - but winning is the most important thing.
'I won`t sit here and criticise what happened before because the club escalated into the Championship at a rate of knots.
'But they came back down again and with the manager going, there has been uncertainty.
'It`s my job to get the team winning again.
'The league position surprises me, having seen the players in training.
'But we are where we are in the league and results suggest that, so it`s up to us to turn it around and get them going.'
Jaroslaw Fojut and Gareth Owen are both unavailable for the home side.
Owen fon Williams and Peter Thompson are both back from international duty.
Rowe, 20, will be a danger on the wing for The Hatters.
Matt Lockwood (tendinitis) and Steven Gillespie (hamstring) return for the U's.
