IT WILL be business as usual for Oxford United's players amid the speculation over Karl Robinson's future, according to James Henry.

The U's rejected an approach from Blackpool on Tuesday as they sought to interview him for their vacancy.

Robinson's response will come at today’s routine pre-match press conference, but such situations can have an unsettling effect on the playing staff.

That would be a blow to a side who have fought their way back into contention after three straight wins, but Henry is relaxed about the situation.

He said: “It’s not even been mentioned around the training ground.

“It’s got nothing to do with any of us as players.

“The gaffer has been excellent, especially in the last couple of weeks where he’s really drilled it into us what we’ve got to do.

“He’s given us confidence to play the way Oxford want.

“We just need to keep it going and push on from here.”
