OXFORD United will be without Ben Woodburn next week after he was called up by Wales.

But the Liverpool loanee, who did not play a minute for the senior squad after being selected last month, has instead been called into the under 21s.

It is the first time Woodburn, 19, has been involved in Paul Bodin's group.

They will travel to Moldova for a UEFA U21 Euro 2021 qualifier, to be played on Friday October 11.

It will see Woodburn miss two United home games - the Leasing.com Trophy tie against Portsmouth and the Sky Bet League One clash with Doncaster Rovers.

Shandon Baptiste will also be away following selection for Grenada, but Chris Cadden has not been included by Scotland.

And with Mark Sykes not included in Northern Ireland's squad, United have fallen short of the three call-ups required to postpone a league fixture.
