Oxford United vs Accrington Stanley
England League One
Date: Tuesday, 21 August 2018
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: The Kassam Stadium (Oxford).
Oxford United and Accrington Stanley are going to face each other in the English League One 4th round.
The hosts should be worried of their start as they suffered all three defeats so far. Karl Robinson’s side produced just one goal while they have conceded 10 times, which makes Oxford United the worst defensive side in the league.
They managed to finish as 16th last season and three wins in the final five rounds secured them the survival. In their only clash at home this season, they lost 2-0 to Fleetwood Town. Oxford United need to improve urgently if they want to get away from the trouble.
The visitors got recently promoted after they win the League Two last season. They were one of the most productive sides in the fourth tier of English league pyramid, while they managed to celebrate 12 times at away grounds.
Accrington Stanley have picked up four points so far which is not a bad start since they want to stay clear of the relegation this time. They’ve been eliminated from Carabao Cup after losing 6-1 to Mansfield Town and Sean McConville and the lads shouldn’t put another bad performance.
Oxford United vs Accrington Stanley: Head-to-head
These two sides have been equally successful inn their recent head to head clashes as they managed to book three wins each in the last seven encounters. Four times in the last five occasions the crowd was able to enjoy goals in both nets.
Oxford United vs Accrington Stanley: Prediction
The hosts are in a very bad momentum and Accrington Stanley could take advantage of the opposition’s bad form. The visitors have already celebrated an away win and they might get back home with another three points.
Oxford United’s defence is leaking too much, while the visitors have also been involved in high scoring clashes. This one shouldn’t be much different, and we should be able to see at least three goals in this clash.
