Patience is a virtue for Ox

Reece Oxford is still waiting to make his first Bundesliga start, with a month of the season having already passed.

The on-loan Hammer has been restricted to a place on the bench for Monchengladbach's opening three league games of the campaign, despite calls from some fans for his immediate introduction to the starting XI.



The 18-year-old, who has recently returned from a spell on the sidelines was an unused substitute for the 1-0 win against Cologne on the opening day of the season, the 2-2 draw at Augsburg and the 1-0 home defeat against Eintracht Frankfurt last weekend.

And with Die Fohlen fans generally disappointed by the team's start to the new season, several have taken to the club's Forums to call for Oxford's inclusion. "It is a mystery to me why he does not play," wrote Monchengladbach supporter Borowka.

"For Oxford, I hope he gets his chance soon," added BurningSoul. "If players who we sign as a 'prospect player' do not get a chance, then it will be damned hard to bring in such rough diamonds as Benes, Cuisance or Oxford in future."
