CAMERON Brannagan will miss Oxford United's meeting with Ipswich Town tomorrow night.

The midfielder was withdrawn at half-time in Saturday's 3-1 defeat to Rotherham United on his return from a knee problem.

While the U's are confident the injury has healed, Brannagan was sent for an ultra-sound scan today.

Head coach Karl Robinson believes the focus now is on finding a way to manage the residual soreness.

He said: "Cameron Brannagan is going in for an ultra-sound scan today on his knee.

"It’s fine in relation to stability, so it’s just a question of how we reduce the pain.

"It’s completely healed, but there will be an element of soreness to it.

"The more you play the greater the pain gets but the ligament doesn’t get any weaker.

"We’ll have a look at other methods which might ease it, but whatever that may be he will need a four-day rest period on that and we’ll see where we are.

"It’s nothing to worry about."

There was better news elsewhere, with Jamie Hanson returning to full training today.

The midfielder has featured just once in September due to hamstring injuries, but is now on track to make a playing return this month.
