Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Oxford United will be aiming to extend their winning run in the League One to three games when they take on AFC Wimbledon at the Cherry Red Records Stadium on Sunday afternoon. The Yellows are eyeing automatic promotion to the Championship, and we are positive that they will stick to their attacking style of play against AFC Wimbledon. Oxford United have been producing fine showings in festive fixtures, but the game against the Dons will be anything but a walk in the park for the visitors.
The Yellows suffered a 1-0 loss to Milton Keynes Dons in their last away game in the League One, but they are surely capable of finding the net in the Cherry Red Records Stadium clash. Seeing that AFC Wimbledon proved their worth in the Boxing Day win over Bristol Rovers, both teams to score bet should be considered.
Highlighted Player (Kwesi Appiah ):
Born in Thamesmead, England on August 12, 1990, Kwesi Appiah is a professional footballer who plays for AFC Wimbledon in the League One. Due to his dual citizenship, Appiah is eligible to play for Ghana and he made his debut with the Black Stars in a 2-1 win over South Africa on January 27, 2015.
The pacey forward scored his first goal for the national team in a 3-0 win over Guinea on February 1, 2015. Appiah started his club career at Ebbsfleet United, but the list of clubs he played for is pretty long.
Appiah wore Peterborough United, Weymouth, King’s Lynn, Kettering Town, Brackley Town, Thurrock, Margate, Crystal Palace, Aldershot Town, Yeovil Town, Cambridge United, Notts County, Reading and Viking shirts before signing a permanent deal with AFC Wimbledon in 2017. His main position is centre-forward, but he is capable of producing fine performances as both second striker and left winger as well.
Highlighted Team (Oxford United):
Oxford United are one of the oldest clubs in the League One as they were founded back in 1893. However, Oxford United adopted their current name 67 years later and have been playing under it ever since.
Over the years the Yellows have built a great rivalry with Swindon Town and there have always been fireworks in clashes between the two sides. Oxford United play home matches at Kassam Stadium, the venue with the capacity of 12,500. The stadium was built in 1997 and has been Oxford United’s home ground ever since. The Boys from Up the Hill are well known for their yellow and blue colours, but they play their away games in dark blue (with a little yellow) or black kits.
Oxford’s player with the most league appearances is John Shuker, playing 478 games for the club from 1962 to 1977. On the other hand, Jim Magilton is the club’s most capped player in internationals, playing 18 games for Northern Ireland.
