Karl Robinson gave Oxford United squad news a boost

Oxford United will receive a boost this week, with two of their regular shooting stoppages set to resume action soon, as reported Oxford Courier.

Jack Stevens has been their goalkeeper so far this campaign, with 13 times for the team so far this year. He was a mainstay of the squad until he was ruled out due to illness and that meant Oxford was forced to change goals.

Simon Eastwood came on but he too was left out of the action. This meant Karl Robinson’s side found themselves without many options between the sticks and had to resort to signing Connal Trueman on a loan from Birmingham.

Although the Blues striker has looked brilliant, he is now expected to return to his parents’ side with both first-team goalkeepers set to return to action soon – and that means one of them could be back. in action on weekends.

Stevens has been with Oxford since 2016 and has worked his way up the club, spending time on loan to gain experience in the game. This year he was a regular with them until his illness and he is likely to. resume the role upon his return.

Eastwood has also been with Oxford for six seasons now and has been a competent substitute when needed. It was a big blow that both goalies got hit at the same time, but now it looks like there is some positive news about them and they may soon be putting them both back into action soon.

The verdict

Connal Trueman can be proud of his performances and may have earned himself another short-term break in the winter window. He can’t break through on the Blues side, so it could definitely be worth it for now.

For Oxford, the feedback from two important players is definitely positive. Both can do a good job in goal and it will certainly benefit Karl Robinson in his attempt to promote the team this season.
