Oxford United will look to continue their impressive unbeaten run when Doncaster Rovers visit the Kassam Stadium this weekend. Karl Robinson’s side have won three out of their last five League One games but face a Doncaster side level on points, despite playing two games fewer.
Oxford United Looking to Continue Impressive Run Against Doncaster Rovers
How the Two Sides Fare
Doncaster started the season with consecutive 1-1 draws but followed it up with wins over Fleetwood Town, Lincoln City and Rotherham United.
A goalless draw with Ipswich Town ensued afterwards before a defeat at home to Blackpool. Donny then secured a win over Peterborough United, before conceding a late equaliser at Coventry and defeat at home to Portsmouth.
Oxford’s form has been on point in recent weeks and have turned the Kassam Stadium into a fortress with successive 3-0 league wins and a momentous 4-0 victory over West Ham United, and the U’s will be looking to continue that run.
Team News, Who’s on Form and Predictions
It’s likely the U’s boss will keep a relatively similar starting 11, with Shandon Baptiste the expected replacement for Woodburn. James Henry, who is nominated for Player of the Month, netted five goals in September.
As for Darren Moore, the defensive trio of Reece James, Tom Anderson and Brad Halliday have played all their games, providing Donny with the third-best defence in League One.
Skipper Ben Whiteman has netted twice from midfield, while wingers James Coppinger and Kieran Sadlier both have three goals.
Last season, the two sides played out 2-2 draws in both fixtures but the season before, Oxford won both encounters 1-0.
Prediction – Oxford United 1-1 Doncaster Rovers
