Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Whaddon Road will host Saturday’s football game between Cheltenham Town and Oxford United, the two mid-table sides. Cheltenham aim to build on a 2-1 win over Charlton Athletic, where talented midfielder Taylor Perry scored his first goal of the season. The 20-year-old should keep his place in the middle of the park, while defender Lewis Freestone is likely to return to the starting line-up.
The Yellows, on the other hand, head into the match following a goalless draw with Wycombe. Oxford United have been producing fine displays at home ground, but given their poor away record, we are tempted to put our money on the Robins. Experienced attacker Matt Taylor is widely expected to lead the line for the visitors. Karl Robinson has no fresh injury worries, and he is likely to stick to the 4-3-3 formation.
Highlighted Player (Chriss Hussey):
Born in Hammersmith, England, Christopher Hussey is an experienced defender who plays for Cheltenham Town in the League Two. After spending his youth career at the likes of Woking and AFC Wimbledon, Hussey continued playing for the Dons at senior level.
He played for a number of English clubs in the past, but, no doubt, the most notable one is Sheffield United. Chris Hussey made seven appearances for the Blades in the League One, but nowadays he is a League Two player. His main position is left-back, but he is capable of producing fine displays as a left midfielder as well.
It has to be noted that he was called up for the England C team as a standby. Christopher Hussey made his Cheltenham Town debut on August 21, 2018 in a 1-1 draw with Macclesfield Town. He scored his first goal with the Robins in a 4-2 loss to Mansfield Town.
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.
