Captain Foster Then?

Luke Foster, latterly of Preston NE, captained Oxford United  the season they returned to the league. Former Sheffield WednesdayOxford UnitedMansfield Town, Stevenage, York City, Rotherham and Alfreton centre-half Luke Foster was released by League 1 side Preston North End this summer and would be an outstanding candidate to take over the armband against Wrexham FC,  in the 3 match absence of Alan Power thanks to a red card at Cambridge.

Foster did not do much wrong at Preston during his short-term deal and only officially came off the Whites pay-roll last month. However the former Oxford legend had trained with the Imps all summer before magnanimously agreeing to a 70% pay cut at a time when he and his fiancée are getting a fledgling fashion business off the ground.

Foster was magnificent in pre-season and continues to put in inspiring performances as the Imps have faced superior resources in every game.  Luke certainly looks a good candidate to take the captain’s armband for Monday, although Nolan has also been a somewhat unsung midfield general so far this season.
