CAMERON Brannagan should be available for Oxford United this weekend following the knee injury he suffered in midweek.

The U’s midfielder required treatment midway through the second half of the 2-2 draw at home to Northampton Town, and after briefly continuing, he was forced off.

Brannagan was replaced by Josh McEachran as part of a triple substitution made by Des Buckingham, with 20 minutes to go against the Cobblers.

Providing an update on Brannagan earlier this afternoon, United head coach Buckingham said: “He’s a little bit sore on his knee, but should be okay for Saturday.

“He’s gone and done an individual session and the intention is for him to train tomorrow, as long as the pain goes away, which it looks like it will.

“He should be in full contention for Saturday. If he’s fully fit, then yes, absolutely he’ll start.”

There was further good news for the U’s, who welcome back Marcus McGuane and Fin Stevens, however a question mark hangs over captain Elliott Moore, who has missed the last two games with a hip problem.

Buckingham said: “Elliott is unlikely for the weekend, but Marcus and Fin are both back in contention.”
