Accrington vs Oxford
England – League One
Date: Tuesday, 19th February 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Crown Ground (Accrington).
The battle takes place between two teams right in the middle of a campaign of survival. The visitors are the more aggrieved one, considering they are already in the relegation zone, and shares the same number of points with two others in the section. Accrington has a cushion of four points to fall on but would be wise to make their home-ties count, especially against lower-tier sides.
It’s been some time since either has tasted a win, but Accrington knows how to make up for it with their performances at the Crown Ground. Suffice it to say, if not for their campaign surrounding their home ground, the team would have been looking deep into the abyss of League Two right now.

Accrington vs Oxford Prediction
The hosts have put in some space between themselves and the teams in contention for relegation. Though it’s not much, it sure does provide a mental edge when they come up against a team languishing in the exit zone. The home advantage tips the scale further in their direction.
Going on, at the Crown Ground, the team was unbeaten in 19 of their last 25 home ties, whereas their opponents were winless in 19 of their last 23 road trips. Accrington has also maintained an unbeaten record in h2h ties for the last four years.
Most importantly, Oxford remains the only team in League One, that is yet to record a win away from home. It’s apparent that the hosts are at a massive advantage here. Count on them to either win or draw this game. Also, Oxford, which has conceded the same number of goals as the weakest side in the competition, AFC Wimbledon, and the same number of goals as the worst team on the road, Shrewsbury, is hands down the favorite to concede the first goal of this tie.
