  • Oxford have the sixth best away record in League One this season
  • Oxford won the reverse fixture 3-1 in October

Morecambe unlikely to back-up Saturday’s victory 

Morecambe’s victory at home to Burton on Saturday was their first in 13 matches and they look unlikely to back that up as they welcome play-off chasing Oxford to the Globe Arena on Tuesday. Morecambe have the worst defensive record in League One this season having conceded 79 goals in 40 games to date and Karl Robinson’s side have been afforded a great opportunity to bounce back to winning ways following defeat to Plymouth at the weekend.

Expect a reaction from Robinson’s men

Oxford are expected to bounce straight back to winning ways after Saturday’s loss at Plymouth. Oxford hold the sixth best away record in League One this campaign and are also the league’s highest scorers, their frontmen should be relishing the opportunity of playing against the leakiest defence in the division. Oxford can take further encouragement from the reverse fixture; The U’s ran out comfortable 3-1 winners when these two sides met at Kassam stadium in October.

Oxford should have no problems getting the better of their hosts on Tuesday. There is little evidence to suggest Morecambe can back up Saturday’s performance and this looks a perfect opportunity for Oxford to return to winning ways as the worst defence meets the league’s most potent attacking side. In the correct market, I will chance this game ending 3-1, just as it did when these sides last met in October.
