OXFORD United boss Karl Robinson expects to have Marcus Browne and Cameron Brannagan available to face Peterborough United on Saturday.

The pair limped off during the defeat to Newcastle United in the Emirates FA Cup fourth-round replay on Tuesday night.

While Brannagan appeared to be suffering from cramp when he came off in extra time, there were more concerns about Browne.

The Middlesbrough loanee needed treatment before being substituted on 62 minutes.

But Robinson is not worried and made his substitutions with one eye on this weekend's visit to London Road in Sky Bet League One.

The head coach said: “I protected Browney, but there’s nothing wrong with him.

“I wasn’t going to risk Alex (Gorrin, who was also substituted), I certainly wasn’t going to risk Cameron Brannagan.

“That’s me being totally honest, people might say if you had left them on you might have won the game.

“But I thought we did just as well without them.”
