Boro have been dealt a blow upon the news that Andy Drury will miss up to three weeks due to the hamstring injury sustained against Ebbsfleet United last weekend.

Drury missed the midweek draw against Histon and manager Graham Westley has revealed he doesn't expect the former Lewes man to be available for some time.

"He tweaked a hamstring on Saturday so he is likely to be out for two or three weeks," Westley told The Comet.

"I would love it to be sooner. I would love someone upstairs to cast a magic spell but I expect it to be two or three weeks."

Drury has been in inspirational form recently and Boro missed his creativity at Histon on Tuesday night but the fact Ronnie Henry is back from suspension for the match against Oxford has softened the blow a little.

Henry is expected to slot straight back in at right back while Lawrie Wilson will continue in the right midfield role he occupied at The Glassworld Stadium.

Westley added that he has not forgotten about the likes of Eddie Anaclet and Jerome Anderson with both eagerly awaiting their first team chance.

"We have got a lot of young players in reserve. Jerome Anderson and Eddie Anaclet are waiting in the wings but Ronnie Henry now comes back for us so we've got plenty of young players who can come in and do a job for us.
