JOHNNY Mullins has been ruled out for the rest of Oxford United's season with a foot injury.

The centre back requires another scan to confirm the exact nature of the problem, but he has a suspected stress fracture of a second metatarsal.

It means Mullins, who has been one of United's top performers this season, will miss the run-in and any subsequent play-off campaign.

The 28-year-old damaged his foot late on in the 3-0 defeat at Chesterfield earlier this month.
