Oxley answers Albion SOS

26 October 2012

Burton have signed Mark Oxley on a one-month loan deal from Hull after injuries left manager Gary Rowett with just one goalkeeper available for the Saturday's game against Bradford.

Oxley's arrival makes it unlikely that Dean Lyness will make his debut as Rowett had originally planned.

Rowett told the club's official website: "I've watched Mark on several occasions now. He reminds me a little bit of Legzy (Adam Legzdins) in terms of his size and presence."

Oxley, 22, added: "I was preparing for Hull's match against Bristol City when I got a phone call saying Burton were interested. Obviously I want to come out and play some games, they're a good club and doing well in the league.

"The whole idea of this season for me is to come somewhere and play regularly, this is the season where I need to play first-team football and a club like Burton is the best place for me to be doing it."
