QUESTION marks remain over two positions in Oxford United’s line-up against Blackpool.

The U’s have been tight-lipped over Sam Long’s hamstring since saying a week ago that the right back hoped to be available for the Sky Bet League One play-offs.

Jamie Hanson could come in for tonight’s semi-final first leg at the Kassam Stadium if the 26-year-old does not recover from the injury he suffered against Burton Albion nine days ago.

One player who is definitely unavailable is Sean Clare, whose loan spell at the Brewers has finished.

U’s head coach Karl Robinson said: “We wouldn’t bring him in anyway, because there’s players that have been here all season and been exceptional.

“We’ve got options everywhere – we’re fit, we’re excited and we’re calm.”

Elsewhere, Brandon Barker could replace Mide Shodipo on the left wing after shaking off hamstring and knee complaints.

Blackpool will be without centre back Daniel Gretarsson, who is set to have shoulder surgery.

The Seasiders are optimistic Ethan Robson (groin), Grant Ward (calf) and Sullay Kaikai (hamstring) will be fit.
