Oxford United Preview – Will United make it three wins on the spin?

After losing out on promotion to the EFL Championship in the play-offs last term, Karl Robinson’s Oxford United will be pushing for an automatic spot this season. They are in the mix after winning 11, drawing six and losing four of their opening 21 matches.

Oxford head into this home game having just won back-to-back fixtures on the road. After a 2-1 win at Doncaster Rovers, the U’s beat MK Dons by the same scoreline at Stadium MK last weekend.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 1353 GMT, Friday 17 December)

Oxford have put together an incredible unbeaten run in the league. Since losing at home to Plymouth Argyle in mid-October, Robinson’s boys have won six and drawn three of their following nine League One encounters. Will that run stretch to ten this weekend?

Wigan Athletic Preview – Can the Latics take No. 1 spot at Christmas?

Wigan Athletic, who finished in a lowly 20th place last term, have been the surprise package in League One this season. The Latics are just two points away from leaders Rotherham United with a game in hand.

So far, Leam Richardson’s boys have won 13 of their 20 League One fixtures, drawing three and losing four of the other seven. They are level on points with Sunderland and Wycombe Wanderers but have a better goal difference.
