Fortunately for the hosts, they face an Accrington team whove not been amazing at the back over the last few weeks, so they ought to be capable of improving on their rather weak attacking antics. Both Portsmouth and Barnsley are likely to be involved in the promotion mix this season, while Fleetwood arent easy to face. All you can say for Oxford is that theyve had a tough run of fixtures.
As far as their exploits at home go, Accrington have generally looked useful; theyre without a win in two at Crown Ground, but theyve played some good football in front of their own fans, while they currently boast a respectable average expected goal difference of +0.41, which tells us that theyve created that little bit more than theyve given away.
Oxford United vs Accrington Stanley Predictions, Betting Tips and Match Previews
To be quite honest, despite Oxfords rather poor travelling record this season, this is not the easiest fixture to call. Accringtons recent home efforts have been more pleasing that Oxfords recent efforts at home, so much so that they really ought to be shorter in the betting. On this basis, a small bet on Stanley to regain the winning thread is merited. Both teams are inconsistent, and it would be no surprise to see either come out on top, though from a price point of view, it is the hosts that stand out.
Its unlikely that theyll go through the whole campaign without picking up maximum points at least once on the road, but such a record is encouraging. Oxford are another side that has struggled for consistency, while theyve also struggled away from home. The Us may have avoided defeat in four of their last five away matches, but they remain without an away-day victory since the end of last season. Karl Robinsons men have played away from home 15 times this term and theyre still waiting for their first victory.
On a few occasions, they have made headway offensively, though their overall game has been poor, while theyve simply not existed as a defensive entity. After three matches, the Us are pointless, while theyve not exactly played well either. Prior to the new campaign, there was a suspicion that Oxford, under the stewardship of Karl Robinson, could do well, though theyve made a dismal start to the season.
Oxford United Team News
Accringtons season continues to go up and down; at times, John Colemans men have looked like a side that could make a move for the play-offs and at others, theyve looked like a side that would be lucky to remain in the division. Their performance at Stadium of Light was a tale of two sides as well, as they played brilliantly in the first half and looked a real threat going forward, though their defending was weak in the second period, as they failed to hold on to a two-goal lead. That said, if they can take the positives from that game, of which there were plenty, and build, then they could easily get a favourable result on Tuesday evening.

Ahead of this match, what stands out is the fact that neither team has offered an amazing amount of resistance. Both are without a clean sheet, while both have looked easy to breach at times. The visitors should almost definitely fancy themselves to hurt Oxford having seen what other teams have done to them in recent weeks, though it would be massively disappointing if the hosts didnt start to offer a bit more in the final third.
Recent Competition Form
A repeat of any of those performances would likely see them gain a positive result on Tuesday. Aside from a poor effort against Peterborough at this venue in between Christmas and New Years Day, Accringtons last three performances at home have been encouraging. They offered more than their visitors when drawing 0-0 against Rovers in their last home match, while they also easily bettered both Shrewsbury and Wycombe in terms of expected goals.
Oxfords performance on the road havent always been terrible and its probably fair to say that theyve been unlucky at times, though they have tended to give too much away. Their efforts on that occasion dont exactly suggest that theyll go to Crown Ground and come out on top. Theyve conceded at least twice in four of their last five on the road, while they recently shipped three goals (without replying) when playing away against Plymouth.
Going forward, John Colemans men have threatened, and while theyve not been great at the back, theyve not been anywhere near as bad as Oxford. They were unlucky to lose on the opening day, while their efforts against both Bristol Rovers and Charlton were pleasing. As a newly promoted side, Accrington will probably be pleased with the start that theyve made to life in League One.
