Oxford - FA Cup rd3 Preview

Last updated : 06 January 2017 By Millersmad

With our league form being, well crap.. the distraction of the FA Cup is welcome, and given our usual run in that, it could also be the last time we're in the 3rd round for a while!

Paul Warne continues to take charge of team matters and gave his team news to the clubs official website.

Lee Frecklington will not be risked as he picked up injury against Leeds last weekend; "It's the same ankle (as previous injury) and I think it's similar ligaments or there or thereabouts and he's got a bit of a dead leg and some ligament damage,”

“He didn't train Thursday but he is still really hopeful for the weekend so we'll re-evaluate him again tomorrow morning and he'll go for a little run and see how he feels.

“I know what Frecks is like and he always wants to play which is a good thing, but because he's got a little bit of a history in there, I'll probably err on the side of caution and it might come a day or two too soon for him.” Warne added.
Apart from Frecks and Lee Camp who is out for the season, Warney has no other majory injury problems, however a number of player have left the club.
“A couple of players have got fatigue but they will do if they run around, so there's no issue with that.We had a good session Thursday] with them in the sun and we'll do possession and team shape with them on Friday but I've got no other injuries, so we're looking good.”

Big Kirky Broadfoot is expected to feature again.
