OXFORD United have arranged 24-hour extensions on two loans to which will permit Chris Maguire and Jordan Evans to face Bristol Rovers next month.

The pair joined last month from Rotherham United and Fulham respectively, on deals which expired on January 16.

It included the Sky Bet League Two game against Bristol Rovers at the Kassam Stadium on the same day.

But the clash has been put back 24 hours, due to United’s Johnstone’s Paint Trophy area final first leg at Millwall being moved to January 14 for television coverage.

That threatened to rule out Maguire and Evans, but the club confirmed yesterday agreements had been reached which will allow them to stay an extra day.
