Oxford vs Accrington Prediction

Oxford completed back to back wins for the first time since late December, by taking down Ipswich on the road with a narrow 1-0 scoreline. The hosts have stumbled just twice in their previous eight games, and have garnered twelve points from a possible eighteen as well.

At the moment, the hosts are sitting ninth on the ladder, just three points shy of a playoff spot to the Championship.

On the other hand, Accrington fell out of their winning groove last week after Rotherham got the better of them with a 2-1 scorecard. Miserably, the defeat was their thirteenth of the season overall.

Furthermore, to be frank, the guests have been at their worst on the road this season. They have come out on top just once in their past three outings, and have dropped points in eight of their previous ten.

In sharp contrast, the hosts have picked up the win in four of their previous seven games on home soil. Given Accrington’s dismal form away from home, the tag of favorites most certainly goes to Oxford United this week.

Additionally, it is also worth mentioning that the visitors have made their presence felt in the final third, lately on the road. The fact that they have scored a goal or more in each of their last six outings certainly stands as a testament to it.

Moreover, the guests have found the back of the net in each of their previous four visits here on the trot. Taking into account that the reverse fixture of this clash also witnessed both teams get their names on the scoresheet together, count on Oxford United to win but to do so without a clean sheet intact.
