Oxford City Preview – Can Oxford City produce upset?

National League South outfit, Oxford City, are three divisions apart from their visitors, Northampton Town, in the English footballing pyramid but the hosts will fancy their chances of causing an FA Cup 1st round upset as they’ve suffered just one defeat in all competitions to date this season.

That loss came in the shape of a recent 2-0 defeat at home to Hampton & Richmond in the National League South prior to Oxford winning five of their preceding six matches overall, so the hosts will be keen to return to winning ways in this upcoming cup clash.

Oxford City had registered wins in the earlier qualifying rounds of this competition over Royal Wootton, Tamworth and most impressive of all, a 3-2 win away at National League outfit, Weymouth, but the hosts face their toughest test yet in this impressive cup run in the shape of Northampton Town.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Northampton Town Preview – Can Northampton avoid banana-skin?

League One outfit, Northampton Town, will make the relatively short trip to Oxford City for Monday night’s local clash in the FA Cup 1st round after a bit of a sketchy start to this new season, but the visitors are unbeaten in their last two matches overall.

Northampton occupy 17th place on the League One ladder after an inconsistent start to this new term but they’ve picked up four points from their last two matches with a 3-2 win away from home at Wigan Athletic and a point in a 0-0 draw at home with MK Dons.

In last season’s FA Cup, The Cobblers put together a promising cup run as they recorded wins against Chippenham Town, Notts County and Burton Albion before drawing with Championship side, Derby County, then lost in the replay 4-2 but the visitors will be hoping that they can reach at least the 2nd round of this competition this season.
