Two mid-table sides on complete opposite ends of the form table meet at the Kassam Stadium on Saturday, as high-flying Oxford United host Fleetwood Town.
Only three points separate Oxford and Fleetwood in the League One table, but looking at more recent results suggests that there should only be one winner in this encounter. Karl Robinson’s men have not lost since November, having gone unbeaten in their last 11 games, winning seven in a row in the process. This incredible run of form has seen them shift attention away from a relegation battle to chasing promotion, as the U’s have three games in hand on Charlton Athletic in the playoff places while being just six points behind them.
Fleetwood, on the other hand, have had a much more difficult time of late. Failing to win in over a month has seen them slip into mid-table obscurity as we reach the midway point of the season. Their run of one win in 11 league games needs to be drastically improved upon.
There has only been over 2.5 goals once in Fleetwood’s last 11 games, so our tip is a narrow win for in-form Oxford. Oxford to win with under 2.5 goals in the match is 10/3.
