Oxford to Win
Oxford are in the midst of a three-game losing slump that is threatening to derail their playoff hopes this term, though the U’s could find their feet again against a Fleetwood side that routinely posts uninspiring results at home. Town have failed to win each of their last seven league assignments at Highbury Stadium and Oxford – who beat Fleetwood 3-1 earlier in the campaign – can complete the double over their opponents on Friday.
Both Teams to Score
Karl Robinson’s goal-hungry Oxford team should have the firepower to get the job done on Friday, though their poor defensive record at the other end suggests Fleetwood could nab a consolation effort. The U’s have failed to keep a clean sheet in eight straight League One fixtures, while both teams to score landed in seven of the same games. Bettors should be able to garner confidence from that run and backing both teams to notch again is the sensible play.
Matty Taylor to Score Anytime
The battle to win the Golden Boot in League One this season is shaping up to be an exciting one with at least five players in with a realistic chance of landing the gong. Oxford star Matty Taylor is among their number and the 32-year-old could add to his 20-goal haul against Fleetwood. Taylor has registered twice in his last three away appearances for Oxford and he can swell his numbers again on Friday.
Fleetwood vs Oxford Match Preview and Team News
Darnell Johnson, Brad Halliday, Harrison Holgate and Jordan Rossiter are all listed as injured for Fleetwood, though Town will hope to have second top scorer Danny Andrew back in the squad. The Cod Army were beaten 2-1 at home by 14th placed Accrington Stanley last time out and a test at Highbury Stadium against Oxford (8th) represents an even stiffer challenge.
Oxford are set to be without Sam Baldock, Marcus Browne, Jamie Hanson and Alex Rodriguez-Gorrin again this week. Cameron Brannagan, Elliott Moore and Luke McNally were all fit enough to play in the U’s defeat to Sunderland last weekend and all three players should make an appearance again when Oxford travel to Fleetwood on Friday.
