Oxford United will be desperate to bounce back after defeat last Saturday away at Walsall, but they’ll take heart from the fact that they’ve won their last two home matches on the trot ahead of entertaining bottom club Bury at the Kassam Stadium this Saturday.

Oxford currently occupy 10th place in the third tier, but they must take all three points here as they trail sixth placed Charlton Athletic by five points, and The Addicks seem to represent the only team that Oxford could feasibly catch up as fifth placed Bradford City hold a ten-point advantage ahead of this weekend.

Oxford’s resilience at home though has shone through following a 7-0 mauling at the hands of League One leaders, Wigan Athletic, as The U’s have registered back-to-back wins on home turf over MK Dons and Blackpool respectively, amidst an overall home record of  6-4-4  25/23. Watch out for striker Thomas (9 goals) for the hosts.

Bury sit bottom of the League One table with just 17 points to their name and find themselves 12 points adrift of Oldham Athletic and the safety position of 20th ahead of their trip down to Oxford with confidence being fragile.

Despite the efforts of leading goalscorer Jermaine Beckford (8 goals), The Shakers have really wobbled in recent weeks as they’ve lost their last seven league matches on the trot, and have gone all season to date without a win on their travels.

Only second from bottom Rochdale are also yet to record a win on the road, but Bury’s poor away record of  0-4-10  9/25 also includes failing to score in seven of their 14 away matches, with just two clean sheets to their name.
