Oxford United vs Ipswich Town Prediction

Oxford United disappointingly completed back to back defeats for the second time this season in the League One after Rotherham breezed past them at home with a 3-1 scoreline. The hosts got off to a shaky start in that latter matchup and were at the receiving end of all three goals, right in the first half.

Despite showing a lot more conviction, post the restart, the home side managed no more than a consolation goal through Marcus Browne.

Having dropped points in their last two games, Oxford United have now slumped to fifth on the ladder with thirty-nine points in the bag.

On the other hand, Ipswich Town brought their dismal eight-match winless run to a halt in their most recent fixture, by taking down Accrington with a whopping 4-1 scorecard. Four different players got their names on the scoresheet for the visitors in that game, handing them a much deserved three points at the end of the ninety minutes.

However, the guests are yet to ensure consistency in their campaign this term. Despite being the second-best away side in the cluster, Ipswich have not been faring well in their recent outings. Miserably, they have dropped points in four of their past five trips on the road.

In sharp contrast, the hosts have stumbled just once in their previous ten games here. Hence, the win is more than likely to swing in favor of Oxford United.

Be that as it may, the guests have shared the spoils in half of their last four outings. Hence, the safest punt in this one would have to be a Draw no Bet.

Furthermore, Ipswich Town have been a force to reckon with in the final third. Impressively they have scored more times on the road than they have at home this season.

With Oxford United conceding three goals alone in their last clash here, it is certainly well within reason to count on neither side to keep a clean sheet this weekend.
