Venue: Glanford Park (Scunthorpe).

Two sides who are at the bottom half of the table are going to face each other in Saturday’s game.

Stuart McCall’s team are 17th in the league with 7 lost in their 16 matches. They have only 4 wins and are the worst defensive side in the competition this season.

The Iron have conceded 34 goals in the league and looks like they are going to give away more from their recent show.

The team from Lincolnshire are on a 6 game losing streak which reflects in their position in the table. They have conceded 14 goals in that streak and have scored 6 in return.

In the last 6 home games they have won 2 and lost 3, and are on a 3 game losing streak at the moment.

The manager of Oxford, Karl Robinson will be happy with his team’s recent performances considering their poor start to the season. They are on the relegation zone and have 8 defeats in the league this season.

They are unbeaten in 4 games in a row with 2 wins included. The Yellows have only 1 defeat in last 6 games across all venues.

They have drawn 3 consecutive games on the road. A win is hard to get in away matches but they tend to draw more. In the last 6 away games they have lost once and drawn the remaining.

A win is a must for the away side as they will get out of the relegation zone and maybe move up 4 places in the table.
