Tip Reasoning

  • Oxford have won one of their last five matches
  • Oxford have failed to score in their last two matches
  • Two defeats in Wednesday’s last ten away league matches

Owls may have found their feet 

Sheffield Wednesday may have just found their feet again following the 4-2 win at home to Plymouth on Saturday. They had only played two games in the month prior to last weekend’s match and may have paid to price for a lack of sharpness as both ended in defeat.

A 5-0 defeat at Sunderland was their first game in three weeks following a covid induced break and they followed this with a lacklustre display at Shrewsbury. They looked back to themselves at the weekend when they thumped fellow play-off hopefuls Plymouth at Hillsborough and they’re fancied to go well once again.

Oxford look to be losing form at just the wrong time

Oxford’s recent form must be of concern to boss Karl Robinson. The U’s made the play-offs on goal difference last season and would have had their sights set on improving on that this campaign. Oxford have only won one of their last five matches and successive 2-0 defeats at the hands of Lincoln and Wycombe now see Robinson’s men sitting outside the top six.

Oxford have put it in reverse at the wrong time and unless they can address their current slide, they may be left behind in the play-off race. Saturday’s visitors will go level on points with The U’s with a victory and have added incentive to avenge the 2-1 defeat when these two met at Hillsborough.

My main selection in this one will be Sheffield Wednesday in the outright market and my correct score prediction will be 2-1 to the visitors.
