Brannagan Misses Blackpool

Midfielder suspended for Saturday's

21 February 2019

Oxford United will be forced in to changes when they take on Blackpool in Sky Bet League 1 on Saturday.

Midfielder Cameron Brannagan picked up his tenth booking of the season during the game at Accrington on Tuesday night. EFL rules state that a player must serve a two game ban if they collect ten yellows up to the 37th game of the season, with Jamie Mackie now one yellow away from a similar ban on nine bookings.

Cameron will miss the games away at Blackpool this weekend and then at home to Scunthorpe on 2nd March, and Head Coach Karl Robinson will be forced into a few additional changes this weekend.

Gavin Whyte is again ruled out after a head injury suffered in the home game against Peterborough while Mackie and Marcus Browne both limped off at Accrington with hamstring problems.

Rob Hall and Jon Obika are coming back from long term injuries while youngsters Shandon Baptiste and Malachi Napa are still unavailable.

Full preview to follow on Friday morning.
