Injury-hit Oxford suffer another blow ahead of AFC Wimbledon clash

Oxford boss Karl Robinson will be forced to change his starting line-up against AFC Wimbledon following another injury blow.

Robinson did not reveal who was struggling with a problem, which was picked up in the defeat to Sunderland at the weekend, but said the player’s absence would have “quite a big impact” on what he does with the team on Tuesday night.

It is a blow to an already stretched squad. Alex Gorrin will complete a two-match ban while the game will come too soon for Liam Kelly, who has had a minor setback in his recovery from a hamstring injury.

However, Marcus Browne and Nathan Holland are now both fit to start after the pair came on as substitutes on Saturday.

Wimbledon expect to have an unchanged squad for the trip to the Kassam Stadium.

Dons boss Glyn Hodges has options should he wish to make any changes, with the likes of Kwesi Appiah, Mitch Pinnock, Anthony Hartigan and Rod McDonald all available.

The club are awaiting the results of a scan after Anthony Wordsworth suffered a setback in his recovery from a calf injury.

Defender Paul Kalambayi (ankle) has been sidelined in recent weeks and is likely to remain absent.
