ALEX Jakubiak will miss Oxford United’s visit to Cheltenham Town next month after a call-up to Scotland’s under 19 squad.
The on-loan striker, who turns 18 next week, is in contention to face Czech Republic under 19s at Greenock on Tuesday, September 2.
It means the Watford youngster will not be available for United’s Johnstone’s Paint Trophy tie at Whaddon Road, which will be played on the same evening.
Scotland also have a behind-closed-doors game two days later, but Jakubiak will return in time to be available for United’s league game at Southend the following Saturday.
