Accrington vs Oxford Head to head (h2h)

  • Oxford have come out on top in two of their last six meetings.
  • Their previous encounter here saw Accrington win 4-2.
  • Only two of their past eight games here have ended as a stalemate.

  • Half of their past eight fixtures have been low scoring affairs with under 2.5 goals on the charts.

Accrington vs Oxford Prediction

The visitors have snapped out of the shaky start that they got off to at the outset and are currently unbeaten in their last five games in all competitions. It is also worth mentioning that the squad recorded back to back victories for the first time season by pulling off a comfortable 3-0 win over Gillingham at home, prior to which they routed Lincoln with a whopping 6-0 scorecard on the road.

On the other hand, Accrington have been struggling to get things going for them and have only just brought a five-match winless run to a halt last week. The hosts have not been at their best even in the comforts of their home and have just one win to boast of from their last four games here.

Furthermore, three out of their last eight clashes with this foe here have also seen them at the losing end. Given that Oxford will be making the trip to Crown Ground on the back of a few very convincing victories, Accrington salvaging even a point, just does not fit the equation.

In addition, the away side have kept a clean sheet just twice in their last six outings and have conceded eight goals so far whilst scoring just two more. Taking into account their last two head to head clashes have also seen goals down either end, there is certainly every reason to expect both teams to have their names on the scoresheet at the last blast of the whistle.
