OXFORD United have breathed a sigh of relief after James Henry’s knee injury proved to be far less serious than feared.

The midfielder, who has netted 26 goals in the last two seasons, is due to return to training later this week.

He could even feature against Queens Park Rangers at the Kassam Stadium on Saturday after the U’s medical department assessed his fitness.

There were concerns when the 30-year-old lay motionless on the turf after being fouled in the 1-1 draw against Woking at the weekend.

But after allowing two days for the swelling to subside, tests at the training ground proved positive.

United are also optimistic Jamie Mackie can rejoin the group before the weekend, having missed the last week with a back problem.
