Early team news for Oxford clash

Paul Cook said Kane Vincent-Young will be assessed ahead of tomorrow's meeting with Oxford United at Portman Road.

The Blues full-back suffered an awkward fall against Colchester United in the Papa John's Trophy on Tuesday, and was substituted at half-time with a shoulder issue, but it appears his injury isn't as severe as first feared.

"We'll look at Kane this morning," Paul said.

"It's not a bad one and it's certainly not long-term which is really pleasing.

"Hopefully he can make the game tomorrow because things have been stop-start for him.

"Being injured is really tough for players, so we're delighted this one isn't too bad."

Paul also confirmed that Scott Fraser came through Tuesday's game with no issues having made his comeback from a knee problem three days ago.

"Apart from Kane with the knock, and Myles [Kenlock] who is still feeling a bit poorly, everyone came through well," the Town boss added.

"It was really good to see Scotty back out there, and we're delighted he's back with us.

"Some of the lads that have been out for a while are doing okay. Tom [Carroll] has just returned to training with the lads, and Jon [Nolan] hopefully isn't too far away."
