ROOFE IS TOLD TO REST UP

The Football League Paper - - INSIDE -

KE­MAR ROOFE could be back in an Ox­ford shirt be­fore too long, ac­cord­ing to man­ager Michael Ap­ple­ton.

The midfielder, who has five goals in seven games so far this sea­son, in­jured his shoul­der af­ter net­ting a su­perb win­ning goal against Bristol Rovers last week­end.

Thank­fully for the club, how­ever, the 22-year-old will not re­quire surgery and could re­turn in the next cou­ple of weeks.

“It shouldn’t be too long,” said Ap­ple­ton. “We just have to en­sure he can’t cause any more dam­age by play­ing.

“You don’t want to turn an in­jury that means you are go­ing to miss one game into one where you could miss five or six.”
