Our prediction for this League 1 match:
All eyes will be on Keepmoat Stadium when Doncaster Rovers and Oxford United take on each other in the League One round 28. The Donny are on a four-game winning run in the League One, and they are surely capable of beating the Yellows on home soil. Talented midfielder Taylor Richards, who has been scoring goals for fun of late, will be one of the men to watch in the home team.
Oxford United, on the other hand, look unstoppable at the moment, with the team eyeing their tenth consecutive win in all competitions. The Yellows are likely to stick to their attacking style of play, and given Doncaster’s form in 2021, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. Experienced attacker Matt Taylor, who has netted 11 goals in the League One so far this term, is likely to pose a big threat to the opposition defenders.
Highlighted Player (Reece James):
Reece James is a talented Chelsea defender who plays for Wigan Athletic on loan. Born in Redbridge, England on December 8, 1999, James started his youth career at Chelsea football academy at the age of 6. The talented teenager played for England U18 and U19 teams and he currently represents the U20 team on the international stage.
Reece James scored 3 goals in 45 appearances for Wigan in the 2018/2019 Championship campaign, but that did not help the Latics avoid relegation to the League One. His numbers from the 2018/2019 season are impressive as he completed 91 successful tackles, 54 blocks, 44 successful dribbles and 93 clearances.
James, on the other hand, has yet to find the net for the England U20 national team. His main position is right back, but he is capable of playing as both centre-back and defensive midfielder as well. Reece James turned professional in March 2017.
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.
