Wigan vs Oxford United
England – League One
Date: Tuesday, 17th April 2018
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: DW Stadium (Wigan).
Wigan were held to a goal-less draw at home by Rotherham on the weekend and missed the chance to widen the gap with Blackburn who are level on points at the top with them. They have a game in hand than their nearest rivals, but Shrewsbury are also knocking on the door from third spot at a 5 point distance.
The Latics are excellent form as well after picking up 6 wins from their last 8 matches. They can also score in bulks having netted 3 or more goals in 4 of their last 7.
Oxford United are one of the teams sitting with a 5 points cushion over the relegation zone. The danger is that they have 4 games left and 3 of them are away from home.
The U’s are coming on the back of a 2-0 win against Southend on the weekend which is Karl Robinson’s first win as a manager since taking over the reins from Pep Clotet on 22 March. I hardly see any improvement in this team and could get back to their losing ways at the DW Stadium on Tuesday.
Wigan vs Oxford United: Head-to-head
Wigan are on a five match win-streak against Oxford. The minimum number of goals the Latics scored in those games is 2.
Earlier this season, Wigan handed Oxford one of their heaviest defeat in League 1 by putting 7 unanswered goals in their net.
Wigan vs Oxford United: Predictions
Wigan are expected to continue their winning run against Oxford United on Tuesday. But, do not expect this to come by the massive margin as happened when these two teams met at the Kassam Stadium in December.
Oxford found their scoring boots lately despite failing to win the majority of the away games in the period. Therefore, both teams to score is very much a possibility, and this is the bet to back especially when odds are offered at juicy 2.25.
