Robinson even admitted Richardson's heroics have caused him to reflect on his own ability to potentially react to a similar situation.

"Their manager is a really good person and what he did for Charlie Wyke was extraordinary," he told Oxford's official website.

"It has had an impact on what we do here as well.

"We have equipment and we have trained medical staff but would I have had the understanding to deal with that myself?

"I have done a bit of training, like most coaches, but we have reviewed things here and talked about it a lot.

"We send our best wishes to Charlie; some people here have worked or played with him and say he is a top lad so we hope all goes well for him."
