COLLINS: I WANT TO THANK U’S

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

MICHAEL COLLINS ded­i­cated his first Ox­ford goal to fans for their support while he sat by his daugh­ter’s hos­pi­tal bed­side.

New­born Nyla spent two nights in Ox­ford Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal with breath­ing dif­fi­cul­ties ear­lier this month.

The 28-year-old, who joined Ox­ford from Scun­thorpe in the sum­mer, re­turned to ac­tion last week and then scored in the 3-1 mid­week win over Ac­cring­ton.

“It’s just one of those un­for­tu­nate things I cer­tainly don’t want to ever ex­pe­ri­ence again,” said the for­mer Hud­der­s­field man.

“But I was touched by the way the club dealt with it and the support I’ve had from fans.”
