Rother­ham 2 Ox­ford United 3

The Sunday Telegraph - Sport - - SPORT -

Ox­ford man­ager Michael Ap­ple­ton dis­tanced him­self from the va­cant Eng­land Un­der 21 job af­ter his side knocked Cham­pi­onship club Rother­ham out of the FA Cup. The U’s pro­gressed thanks to goals from for­mer Miller Ryan Taylor, Phil Ed­wards and sub­sti­tute Kane Hem­mings (right) but the con­ver­sa­tion af­ter­wards was about Ap­ple­ton’s fu­ture. “I think it’s dif­fi­cult for any man­ager to be brave enough to say they wouldn’t be in­ter­ested in a role like that but the re­al­ity is that it is just pure spec­u­la­tion,” said Ap­ple­ton.
