Wigan Athletic Preview – Will Latics extend incredible unbeaten run?

Leam Richardson’s Wigan Athletic are having a fine League One campaign. They sit second with games in hand on their promotion rivals. Overall, the Latics have taken 55 points from 25 league matches, winning 17, drawing four and losing four.

Since their last league defeat, which came against Lincoln City way back in October, Athletic are unbeaten in 11 in League One, winning eight and drawing three. After four straight wins, Wigan were held to a 0-0 draw by Cheltenham Town last weekend.

Oxford are a solid outfit and are also having a fine season, but Wigan head into this home fixture as the 11/10 favourites with the bookies. After drawing a blank last time out, will Richardson’s troops return to winning ways on Tuesday?

Oxford United Preview – Can the U’s upset the hosts?

Having missed out in the play-offs last term, Karl Robinson and his Oxford United side are having another go at promotion this season. At the time of writing, the U’s sit pretty in sixth, winning 14, drawing seven and losing seven of 28.

Oxford recently suffered back-to-back 2-0 away losses to Lincoln and Wycombe Wanderers but have bounced back with two wins since. After a hard-fought 3-2 home success over Sheffield Wednesday, United put seven past Gillingham with an incredible 7-2 away victory last time out.
