AGON Mehmeti’s ham­string in­jury could hardly have come at a worse time for the Al­ba­nian striker but Ox­ford boss Pep Clotet is con­tent he has the squad depth to cope.

Hav­ing scored his first goal for the U’s at Peter­bor­ough last week­end, the 27-year-old tore his ham­string eight min­utes into his first start against Brighton Un­der-21s in the EFL Tro­phy on Tues­day.

“It’s be­cause he stretched the leg in a way that the mus­cle felt a lot of stress,” ex­plained Clotet.

“It could be a few weeks be­cause it’s not a small one. We have enough depth in the squad to get through this.”
