It’s fair to say that Oxford United were far from impressive in the early stages of the season with three defeats, one draw and a single win in their opening five league outings, however they have since picked things up and have steadily climbed the League One table on the back of some positive results. They have been a bit of an enigma at times, a fine 3-0 win over Tranmere Rovers being followed by a goal-less draw with a dreadful Bolton Wanderers side, this in turn being followed by comprehensive thrashings of Lincoln City (0-6), West Ham (4-0, League Cup) and Gillingham (3-0). The undoubted highlight of this run was the thumping of Premier League side West Ham United in the League Cup although since then they have managed just a single win from their subsequent three games.

Doncaster Rovers sit level on points with Oxford United although they do enjoy two games-in-hand over their weekend opponents. Donny have generally impressed this season although things have slowed down a little in recent weeks with just a single win coming in their last six games across all competitions. Indeed while Doncaster have been solid in front of their home fans, they are still in search of their first win on their travels and with that in mind, we’ll be siding with an Oxford United side which have impressed at the Kassam Stadium this season, BetVictor Bookmakers going 11/10 on Oxford to win.
