Ipswich vs Oxford Prediction and Analysis
The hosts were last seen in the league in a 4-1 win against Wycombe. Which saw them move to the 9th position in the League One table. They have added 23 points to their tally coming through 6 wins and 5 draws.
The U’s on the other hand has added 27 points from 8 wins and 3 draws in the league this season. They currently occupy the 6th position in the table and are 7 points behind Wigan. With a game in hand over 4 of the 5 teams above them in the table, they are in a comfortable position in the table.
The Blues started the season pretty poorly according to their standards having not registered a win in the opening 6 league fixtures. They have since built momentum and are pushing for a spot in the playoffs.
Yellows on the other hand started off the season quite well but had a slump of form in the month of September where they had won just 3 points but are now back to winning ways.
Oxford has picked up several convincing victories this season and has won 5 of their last 6 league games however they have struggled against quality opponents on the road. The Tractor Boys on the other hand have been formidable at home with just a loss at this venue since February.
Taking the above into consideration we have backed the hosts to get the better of Oxford in a tightly contested match.
Bonne has been incredible this season and is the cornerstone for the hosts’ success this season. He is currently the 2nd highest scorer in the league. I have backed him to find the back of the net at least once.
