Oxford United vs Newport County preview - Oxford duo set to return



Posted Friday, October 03, 2014 by PA

Oxford's two long-term injury absentees could return to action when they welcome Newport to the Kassam.

Goalkeeper Ryan Clarke and midfielder Andy Whing came through their second friendly in two weeks unscathed in midweek having undergone surgery in the summer and the pair could be involved in the squad, although it is unlikely they will be thrown into the starting line-up.

Michael Collins could join them in the 18 after his calf injury was not as bad as first feared. The midfielder suffered a painful blow against Luton and there were fears he could spend a spell on the sidelines.

One player who will not be involved against the Exiles is Will Hoskins, however the former Brighton striker is making excellent progress having suffered a groin injury last month.

Newport could hand a debut to striker James Loveridge when they make the trip.

The Swansea forward, who has yet to make a competitive appearance for his parent club, arrived on a one-month loan deal on Thursday and is available to feature.

Defender Kevin Feely will join him in the squad after making a full recovery from a toe injury but Andrew Hughes serves the final game of his three-match ban for a red card against Shrewsbury.

Ryan Jackson and Lee Minshull will both have their injuries assessed by the Exiles' medical staff.
