TOP-SCORER Cameron Brannagan is set to miss Oxford United’s game against Coventry City this afternoon.

The midfielder, who has three goals so far this campaign, picked up an injury in the defeat at Bristol Rovers last weekend.

Boss Karl Robinson said: “He’s struggling still with his groin. That’s going to be a big loss to us.”

Matty Taylor (groin) is also out, while United are likely to omit George Thorne as they ease him back to fitness.

Dan Agyei is close to being involved and could make the bench today, while Shandon Baptiste should be fine for selection after coming through his return in midweek without any problems.

Chris Cadden, Rob Dickie and Jamie Mackie, rested in the midweek win against Millwall, are due to return.

Coventry have injury doubts over midfielder Jamie Allen (hip) and left back Brandon Mason (hamstring).


Oxford Utd: Eastwood, Cadden, Dickie, Moore, Ruffels, Gorrin, Hanson, Henry, Woodburn, Fosu, Mackie, Agyei, Forde, Hall, Sykes, Baptiste, Mousinho, Long, Berkoe, Stevens.

Coventry: Marosi, Dabo, McFadzean, Hyam, Mason, Kelly, Westbrooke, Shipley, Jobello, Godden, Hiwula, Bapaga, Bakayoko, Wakefield, Eccles, O’Hare, Williams, Rose, McCallum, Wilson.
