Oxford United boss gives update on Cameron Brannagan injury

Although DES Buckingham acknowledges that Cameron Brannagan’s injury from last night is concerning, there was no instant concern at the full-time whistle.

Midway through the second half of the U’s 2-2 draw with Northampton Town at home, the midfielder was pulled off after needing a few minutes of medical attention.

With twenty minutes remaining, Buckingham made a triple substitution, substituting Josh McEachran for Brannagan.

It might be an additional setback for United’s midfield, which has been without Marcus McGuane for the past two games due to a quad injury.

If McGuane performs well in practice this week, he ought to be back in the running for the Leyton Orient home game this coming weekend.

Regarding Brannagan’s injury, Buckingham stated: “When he went down, he was a little worried, but the medical staff cleared him for all of the tests they performed on the field.”

“He felt well enough about himself to go on. He tried it, but in the end he was just uneasy. We’ll assess his condition and proceed accordingly.

It’s concerning, but we have Jay Matete and Josh McEachran on board to provide cover in those areas.

“Whether they are starters or pinch hits, players like Marcus McGuane and Cameron Brannagan have a huge impact on what we want to do, so you never want to be without them.”
