With Woodburn & Baptiste called up and Sykes not in the Ireland U21 squad but surely going to be selected for the Senior team should a postponement happen?
Tough one for KR to call with the form we are in a blank weekend is not what we want however Doncaster is a very tough game and one we need our full squad for i would have thought.

Sykes is on standby for the senior team I think and Cadden hasn't been called up so it is unlikely. Our squad has also demonstrated it can cope in the last week or 2 so get on with the game. Sunderland fans are fuming, in the main on their forum, that their game has been called off for call ups, mainly because of the keeper getting called up*. The reason being, fixture backlogs meaning the rearranged game will be midweek and Jack Ross is basically saying the back up keeper and squad players are not good enough so wrecking squad morale.

*Obviously they had others but not guaranteed starters iirc.

Ipswich match in Nov is almost definitely going to be postponed, due to their International call ups

Given the option whether this can be postponed (seems unlikely?) finances might decide whether to play anyway. With the Bury game already lost and the Ipswich game almost certainly going to be postponed, if the Doncaster game is postponed that will leave Oxford with 1 home league game between now and 7 December. Quite how a League 1 club is expected to survive with gate receipts from just 1 home game in 10 weeks is anyone's guess. Poor planning from the EFL. With Bury game gone too, maybe the EFL would like to offer an interest free loan to cover the period of no money coming in.

EFL will respond ... youve got the leasing dot com trophy game (s) ... probably!

Is it? Tbh that’s the only home game up until Christmas it’s not my weekend with my daughter so it might help me out 👍🏻 Every cloud.
