Young Hammer, Reece Oxford has solved the mystery of his exclusion from the FA Cup squad that travelled to Manchester over the weekend.
The 17 year old central defender who can also play in midfield has revealed he suffered a small injury in training yesterday which ruled him out.
Speaking on his personal twitter account this afternoon Ocford said:
“Unfortunately, I got a small injury in training yesterday, but massive game for the boys today”
Slaven Bilic was forced to include Winston Reid in his squad who started against Manchester United at Old Trafford in the FA Cup quarter-final despite only resuming training on Friday after 5 weeks out with a hamstring injury.
