Football - Kitson doubt for Oxford

Oxford will check on striker Dave Kitson before the trip to Morecambe.

PA Sport Report

The former Reading forward came off in the 58th minute of their 3-2 defeat at Newport on Tuesday night and is a doubt with a hamstring problem, but Danny Rose is set to feature after shaking off an illness which forced him off at the break against the Exiles.

The U's will definitely be without Tom Newey who serves the first of a two-game ban for picking up 10 yellow cards this season while Michael Raynes (hip) and Sean Rigg (calf) look set to miss out once more.

Tuesday night's defeat ended Oxford's 16-game unbeaten away run in League Two, which stretched back almost 11 months.
