Newey returns but Alfie is ruled out as Oxford United Welcome Fleetwood Town
Oxford United will welcome left back Tom Newey back into the squad this Saturday as they take on Fleetwood Town at the Kassam Stadium, but will be without the services of winger Alfie Potter.
Newey returns to the squad after serving a three game suspension following his red card at Chesterfield but Potter is likely to be out for two weeks with a groin strain. Manager Gary Waddock told us:
“Tom is a very experienced player and it is good to have him back in the squad. Alfie was very unfortunate. It was literally the last kick of the warm up at Dagenham on Saturday so we had to change the team at the last moment. Hopefully it is just a game or two on the sidelines for him but we will monitor that closely and make sure he is right for the important games coming up.”
