Sunderland will be looking to continue some recent good form as they make the trip to Oxford on Saturday. The Mackens have won three of their last four games. The U’s meanwhile have been struggling to find their winning touch, but can they deny the visitors?

Sunderland can secure three away points

Sunderland are still well in the mix for promotion to the Championship at the end of this campaign. They start the weekend in fifth place in the table and have collected a win in six of their last seven fixtures (D1 L1). Their away form for the campaign reads W5 D3 L6.

Three of those five away wins have happened in their last five on the road, so they have been improving. A loss at Portsmouth in their last road game saw them have a four match unbeaten run away from snapped (W3 D1).

The one thing about their away form this season has been a lack of goals. Sunderland have only averaged 0.8 goals per away fixture. Just 29% of their league away games in this campaign have made it over 2.5 goals. Sunderland have managed a clean sheet in just 14% of away games in League One this season.

But still, they look the stronger of the two teams here. The Black Cats have taken a clean sheet in six of their last seven games now and have only suffered one loss in their last twelve games. So boss Phil Parkinson isn’t likely to shake up his starting eleven too much here.

 

Oxford lacking momentum

Oxford have just lost their way a little bit and their promotion push is not looking too hot at the moment. There has been only one win for Oxford in their last seven league outings (D3 L3).

They have also failed to hit the back of the net in three of their last seven league games played.

They did win their last home game, however, a 2-1 success over Blackpool. That moved them on to a very good W8 D3 L2 record on home soil this season.

The U’s however, have only taken the four points from their last three on home soil. This season Oxford have averaged 1.8 goals per home league fixture.

There are positive stats at the back as well, as they have conceded under a goal per home game on average. The U’s have been beaten once in their last eleven home games in the third tier.

Oxford have failed to take a clean sheet in any of their last four games played now. They have secured a big trend of having been leading at half time in 8 of their 13 home games.

 

Oxford vs Sunderland Betting Advice

Sunderland have really strung together some great form to put themselves within touching distance of the automatic promotion places in League One. This isn’t a bad time for them to be visiting Oxford who have fallen off the pace.

 

Key Facts – Oxford vs Sunderland Betting Tip

  • The last four meetings have all been drawn
  • Oxford are unbeaten in 10 of their last 11 home league fixtures
  • Sunderland have lost one of their last 12 league games

 

The U’s have had a very good season on home soil, but Sunderland are showing the consistency, especially in defence, to get something out of this game. The away win takes the fancy in this one, in what could easily be a low-scoring game.
