Oxford boss Robinson happy with on-loan Liverpool midfielder Woodward

Oxford United boss Karl Robinson is happy with the progress of on-loan Liverpool midfielder Ben Woodward.

While he's currently injured, Robinson has been pleased with the Welshman's contributon.

He told the Liverpool Echo: “When you look at this season he's been really good, to the point he was one of the most fouled players in the league at one stage and took one tackle which ended up breaking his foot.

“Some people seem to think that's okay that you can do that to young players but this injury will certainly make him a better player. Sometimes you have to deal with these situations to become a better player.

“He was certainly getting treatment in our league that I felt wasn't fair.

“I think he was a marked man because of his reputation but he's coped with it so well and Liverpool should be extremely proud of him."
