Injury blow for Franks

Published Add your comment

New Oxford loanee Jonathan Franks will have to wait for his debut after being sidelined through injury.

The 21-year-old striker dislocated his shoulder in a behind-closed-doors friendly against Bristol City on Tuesday.

The injury is expected to keep Franks out for a month.

Franks, who has played 30 times for parent club Middlesbrough, moved to the Kassam Stadium on transfer deadline day in a deal that will keep him there until the new year.
