Oxford or Draw

Our first Port Vale vs Oxford prediction backs the visitors to avoid a defeat. Oxford have far more at stake as they are desperately fighting for survival so their motivation remains high. Oxford’s results have improved lately too with 3 consecutive draws registered. At the same time, Port Vale are stuck in mid-table and they seem to have lost interest with no wins in the last 5 rounds (D2 L3).

Half With Most Goals – Second

Our next free betting tip is that there will be more goals scored in the second half of this match. This happened in 3 of the last 5 H2Hs. Also, both goals score a significantly higher numbers of their goals after the interval. For Port Vale, this percentage is 67.5, and for Oxford, it is 60.2.

Under 2.5 Goals

We don’t expect this to be a high-scoring contest and this is why our final Port Vale vs Oxford prediction is for the game to have fewer than 3 total goals in it. This was the case in all of Oxford’s last 7 away matches and in 3 of Port Vale’s last 4 home games.

Port Vale vs Oxford Lineups & News

Port Vale

The Valiants lost 0-3 on Good Friday against another relegation-threatened team Accrington. The display was pretty poor and Port Vale have now collected only 2 points from their last 5 games and have won just once in the last 8 rounds.

Both centre-backs Jones and Cassy are sidelined, both bitterly missed. Also key playmaker Garrity remains out injured and without him, the forward actions had been pretty bad. Now another key player is set to miss – Ojo cripples the midfield line further as he is serving a ban in this one.

Oxford

Oxford’s winless run is up to 13 now but 3 consecutive draws since a change of managers give some hope. On Good Friday did pretty well to hold off promotion-chasing Sheffield Wednesday to a 1-1 home draw.

Some changes to the lineup can be expected but with so much at stake more likely to ask the important players to play through fatigue. Centre-back Moore threatens to miss though as he picked up a knock on Friday. Of the 4 long-term absentees, the only important player is inner midfielder Bodin.
