Oxford vs Gillingham
England – League 1
Date: Saturday, 28 September 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Kassam Stadium (Oxford).
Despite recording back to back defeats midway, Oxford have turned things around in their League One campaign and are currently unbeaten in their last three games. The hosts pulled off what was their biggest win yet last week with a whopping 6-0 win over Lincoln, that too on the road.
Gillingham have had a taste of success just once in their previous four games, the last of which ended in a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Ipswich in front of their home fans. The squad have not been faring any better in their trips on the road either and are without a win in each of their previous four outings.
With home advantage safely under Oxford’s belt in this one, Gillingham are sizing up to be the underdogs to come out on top this weekend.

Oxford vs Gillingham Prediction
Karl Robinson’s men will be able to breathe easy on Saturday as the hosts have been at the losing end just once in their last four league matchups here. In addition, they are up against a visiting cavalry that has picked up no more than three points on the road from a possible twelve.
Taking into account that Oxford have also been securing the bragging rights with ease in their last three head to head meetings in a running here, Gillingham can rule out any hopes whatsoever of pulling off an upset.
Furthermore, it is certainly worth mentioning that the hosts have not been shy in racking up the goals tally at home and have scored two goals or more in each of their last five games here in all competitions.
Given that the guests found the back of the net three times from their previous two outings in the league as well, a high scoring clash with over 2.5 goals on the charts is certainly on the horizon.
