Oxford United Preview – Can U’s grab last play-off spot?

With just one match remaining and one point behind 6th placed Portsmouth, Oxford United must take all three points at home against Burton Albion at their Kassam Stadium on Sunday lunchtime and hope that Portsmouth fail to beat Accrington Stanley at Fratton Park.

Recent form certainly gives Oxford United a decent chance here as The U’s have won five out of their last six matches in League One, gaining wins against Crewe Alexandra, Shrewsbury Town (home and away), Gillingham and Plymouth Argyle to keep Oxford in hunt for a top six finish.

Oxford United have also won four of their last five games at home as well and this upturn in form at their Kassam Stadium may just see The U’s over the line here.

Our betting suggestion:

Burton Albion Preview – Can Brewers finish season on a high?

The arrival of manager, Jimmy Floyd-Hasselbaink, for a second stint at Burton Albion has certainly paid dividends as The Brewers now occupy a much healthier looking 16th place on the League One ladder and 13 points above the relegation zone.

Hasselbaink took over the reigns at Burton on New Years Day with his side sitting bottom of the division but he has helped guide The Brewers to safety and the visitors have also lost just one of their last nine matches overall.

It’s been a season of two halves therefore for Burton who struggled on the road, failing to win any of their opening 11 matches away from home but they’ve since been rejuvenated by being unbeaten in their last 11 games on their travels, winning eight of these.
