Derby vs Oxford United Predictions

  • Derby will enter this season with an almost completely new squad of players.
  • Five of Oxford’s last six competitive away games produced over 2.5 goals.
  • The main selection won in two of the only three all-time home H2H encounters.

A new dawn for Derby County

With the off-field problems that have plagued Derby County for what feels like an eternity now a thing of the past, they can now focus on escaping the third tier in their first season at this level since 1986!

The level of change in playing and management staff cannot be understated though, with the new arrivals already in the double figures and Liam Rosenior taking charge of team affairs, it could take some time for the new squad to gel together.

The evidence of that has been seen in pre-season, as while too much stock cannot be given to friendlies, losing to the likes of Alfreton and Stevenage were not the confidence-boosting clashes that Derby had hoped for.

Oxford are on the charge

Also looking to escape League One this season are Oxford, they only missed out on a play-off position by seven points and two places last season and have a contender for top scorer in Matt Taylor in their ranks.

Combine that scoring talent with the fact that both teams scored in a league-high 70% of games involving Oxford last season. As such, we predict that both teams will score with over 2.5 match goals in this opening encounter.

As for the correct score, we are going for a 2-1 victory for outsiders Oxford.
