Tip Reasoning

  • Oxford United have lost three of their last four games, winning just once in their last five.
  • Milton Keynes Dons, meanwhile, were unbeaten in 15 games prior to their loss to Sheffield Wednesday last time out.
  • The visitors have lost just three away games all season, with their 42 points from 21 road trips the second-best such record in the division.

MK Dons continue promotion charge at below-par Oxford

With Wigan Athletic looking extremely likely to take one of League One’s two automatic promotion spots, MK Dons appear to be locked in a straight fight with Rotherham for the second spot in the Championship. Liam Mannings’ men were unbeaten in 15 matches prior to Saturday’s defeat at Sheffield Wednesday, and must fancy their chances of getting back to form at Oxford in a crucial Tuesday-night encounter.

The promotion-chasers boast an excellent away record, with only Wigan bettering their return of 42 points from 21 games on the road in league one or falling to fewer than their three away defeats. Manning’s team are also unbeaten in their last 12 away trips, and their visit to out-of-form Oxford could come at the perfect time.

The U’s beat struggling Fleetwood 3-2 on Friday evening, having lost three consecutive games prior to that, but Karl Robinson’s charges have only won one of their last five matches, and Tuesday represents their last real chance to get back into play-off contention after they fell four points behind sixth-placed Wycombe Wanderers.

Visitors worth backing for a crucial win

Despite their poor run of form, the current picture in the play-off race ensures Oxford must attack MK Dons from the off on Tuesday. With only a win being enough for the hosts, it could play into the hands of a visiting side with four wins in their last five away games.

We’re tipping the visitors to claim a win which could prove crucial in the promotion race, while a reverse of Oxford’s early-season 2-1 win over Milton Keynes could represent a decent correct score prediction.
