Oxford Double Chance
Rotherham’s automatic promotion push is teetering on the edge of collapse following a run of four defeats in five and with their nerves starting to jangle, Oxford can take advantage. The U’s are in the hunt of the playoffs and spirits should be high in their camp following two wins on the spin. With the Millers in disarray, in-form Oxford look a strong price in the double chance market this weekend.
Both Teams to Score
Oxford have a strong chance to take something from their trip to South Yorkshire on Saturday, though recent evidence suggests a clean sheet is off the table for the U’s. Oxford have recorded only one shut out in their last ten fixtures, though it’s worth noting that both teams to score was a winning bet in 80% of the same games. A similar outcome looks possible in Rotherham this week and bettors can pursue the same market with confidence.
Oxford to Score First
Rotherham’s confidence as at a really low ebb and as a result, the Millers have started many of their recent assignments tentatively. In fact, Rotherham have conceded the first goal in four of their last five League One fixtures and Oxford will be determined to capitalise on their host’s fragility. A such, a bet on the visitors to notch the contest’s first goal at the AESSEAL New York Stadium appeals at the prices on offer.
Rotherham vs Oxford Match Preview and Team News
Mickel Miller, Josh Vickers, Will Grigg and Georgie Kelly are all listed as injured for Rotherham ahead of the weekend. The Millers were beaten for the fourth time in five league games when they were toppled at Burton on Tuesday and their automatic promotion berth is under serious threat as we approach the campaign’s climax.
Oxford could be without James Henry, Sam Baldock, Marcus Browne, Jamie Hanson and Alex Rodriguez-Gorrin again this weekend. The U’s enjoyed a fine 1-0 win over third-placed MK Dons on Tuesday evening, though they will need to keep the good results coming to snatch a last-gasp spot in the playoffs.
