Kashi out for Oxford
Marcus Browne and Ahmed Kashi will miss Oxford’s Sky Bet League One clash against AFC Wimbledon through suspension.
Karl Robinson’s side won 3-1 at Walsall last weekend despite being reduced to 10 men after midfielder Browne was given a straight red card for a studs-up challenge in first-half stoppage-time.
Fellow midfielder Kashi, who had been booked and then substituted, was shown a second yellow for coming onto the field to celebrate the final goal.
The duo’s absence will allow manager Robinson to try different options, with the Oxford manager preparing to look at their talented Under-18 squad.
Wimbledon should be able to welcome back Steve Seddon for the game.
The left-back has been struggling with an ankle injury, but manager Wally Downes expects the Birmingham loanee to be involved.
The Dons boss has no other injury concerns, saying ‘everybody is fit and raring to go’ this weekend.
A number of first-team players were involved in a midweek behind-closed-doors match against Cambridge to aid with fitness.
