Oxley, Ferdinand and Inniss update

Phil Brown has revealed Ryan Inniss, Mark Oxley and Anton Ferdinand could all be available for selection this weekend.

Inniss and Oxley have had lingering issues and Ferdinand limped out of the warm-up against Fleetwood last weekend.

But Brown could welcome all three back into his squad against Scunthorpe.

On Inniss, Brown said: “The fact he’s with Crystal Palace, they’ve got to decide on the medical side of things because he’s under contract with them.

“We had to wait for clearance from their medical staff and when we got it on the 31st [January], it was like signing a new player.

“We got him in the August transfer window and haven’t had the full benefit. Hopefully that’s behind us and we’ll get the benefit of a fit Ryan Inniss for the next 18 games.”

Oxley may well come into contention as well, with Brown saying: “He’s got one last little hurdle to get over, which might be little for me but massive for him, and that’s more psychological.

“It’s the confidence in his own arm. As an outfield player it’s always in your ankles and knees which is the final hurdle he has to get over and if that happens today then he’ll be available for Saturday.”

There was also good news where Anton Ferdinand is concerned, who should also be fit to play.

“Anton trained yesterday and he will train today and tomorrow with a view to playing on Saturday.”
