Reason For Burton Albion vs Oxford United Predictions

  • Burton Albion have been in indifferent form with just one win and one loss from their last five games.
  • Oxford United have fared slightly worse over the same period, losing two of their last five.
  • Burton Albion have drawn three of their last five and are unbeaten in six at home.
  • Oxford United have picked up just five points from a possible fifteen in recent weeks.

Can Burton pick up the win and leapfrog their opponents?

Burton Albion have struggled to find their form in recent weeks, drawing three of their last five and only picking up one win, a 1-0 victory over MK Dons. It’s been enough to keep them in the top half of the table and only six points off the playoff places but they need to find some wins soon to make the next step up in their pursuit of the top six.

Burton have drawn nine games this season but three of those have come in the past four weeks as they struggle to close out games. They’ve been scoring goals despite their indifferent form though, drawing a blank just once in their last five and another positive result in this game would be welcome.

Are Oxford able to overcome their poor form and climb the table?

Oxford United haven’t been at their best in recent weeks, claiming just one win in their last five games and looking a little off the pace against the sides above and around them in the table. They still have quality within their side and will hope coming up against another side struggling for form will give them the boost, and result, they need.

Losses against Rotherham and Peterborough in recent weeks have dented the playoff hopes that the side held but all is not lost with just four points keeping them from the top six. A win here, whilst looking less than likely, would put them within touching distance of the playoff places and there will be plenty of motivation for the players when they take to the pitch at the Pirelli Stadium.

Who takes the initiative and boosts their playoff hopes?

This game looks incredibly tight with both sides looking incredibly even across the pitch. Picking a winner is very difficult with both sides have the capabilities to pick up all three points. Ultimately the game looks doomed to being a low-scoring draw and we’re backing the match to end in a stalemate.

The scoreline shouldn’t be high with both sides lacking a little confidence, whilst still having enough quality in defence to hold off the other. We’re predicting that these two sides will cancel each other out across the pitch and that this match ends in a rather drab 0-0 draw.
