Oxford United Preview – Can Oxford make it three on trot?

Back-to-back wins against Crewe Alexandra 6-1 away from home and a 4-1 thrashing of Shrewsbury Town at home mean that Oxford United will be seeking a third league win on the trot on Saturday when they welcome Gillingham to the Kassam Stadium as The U’s look to break into the play-off pack in League One.

Oxford have scored a total of 10 goals from these last two matches and these victories will help lift The U’s as they look to make one final push for a possible top six finish in the third tier, and having won three of their last five at home, Oxford look to have a decent chance here too.

Oxford’s home record stands at 10-4-6 29/18 which includes eight clean sheets along with scoring 2 goals or more in nine of their 20 home matches to date.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Gillingham Preview – Can Gills put late run together?

Although Gillingham have lost just once in their last seven matches overall in League One, the visitors now find themselves six points adrift of 6th placed Portsmouth ahead of this tough looking trip to face Oxford United on Saturday.

Gillingham’s one defeat during this sequence was a heavy 4-1 loss away at in-form Blackpool but despite valuable wins against Swindon Town, Lincoln City and Wigan Athletic, too many draws of late have slowed down the Kent club’s progress.

Mixed results away from home have also contributed in denying Gillingham making a serious assault on the top six as the visitors have won just two of their last seven matches on the road and they could face another stumbling block in the shape of Oxford United on Saturday too.
