Nathan Holland’s season with Oxford United looks to be over after scans revealed the extent of a hamstring injury sustained in the win at Shrewsbury last week.
The on-loan West Ham winger’s worst fears were confirmed this week and he has returned to the Hammers for a further scan and medical treatment with a return unlikely to happen before the end of the season.
“It’s gutting for him” Karl Robinson told iFollow today. “He has done ever so well for us and has a fantastic future ahead of him but the injury means he isn’t likely to be involved again. I like him as a lad and who knows, there may be opportunities in the future but we thank him for what he has done in his short time here and will try to keep him involved in what we think will be a really exciting finish to the season.”

“I didn’t think it was as bad at first and I am so gutted to have to miss out. It has been a great experience at Oxford and I have learned so much from it. I want to thank the Gaffer and the players for the way they have made me feel so welcome and I really want to thank the fans because they have been amazing. They deserve success, so stick with the lads, get behind them in every game and I am sure that the club is only going to keep going forward.”
