CAMERON Brannagan has been told to rest up at home after avoiding serious injury in a fall against Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday.

The game was halted for almost ten minutes after the Oxford United midfielder landed on his head after colliding with teammate Cameron Norman.

Brannagan, who left the field on a stretcher wearing a neck brace, was taken to Stoke Mandeville Hospital, but was discharged on Saturday night.

Both United and the former Liverpool apprentice were grateful for the medical care he received, both at Adams Park and at hospital.

At this stage it is unclear when Brannagan will be cleared to play again, but the 22-year-old is optimistic.

He told United's website: “Obviously everyone was concerned but I have had scans and tests and hopefully it’s just a case of getting some rest for a few days and then seeing how quickly I can get back playing."

He added: “Most of all I want to thank everyone who sent messages or got in touch to check I was fine.

"That was quite amazing and I’m pleased to reassure everyone that all is well and I will be back as soon as possible.”
