Our prediction for this League 1 match:
High-flying Oxford United will be looking to extend their winning run in the League One to four games when they take on Doncaster Rovers at the Keepmoat Stadium on Matchday 25. Since the Yellows are eager to secure automatic promotion to the Premier League, we predict that they will stick to their attacking style of play against Doncaster Rovers.
The Donny, on the other hand, have been having their ups and downs of late. Following a terrific 3-0 win at Peterborough United, Darren Moore’s charges suffered a 2-1 loss to Sunderland in their last game in 2019. Doncaster Rovers failed to win the last four home games in the League One, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the promotion-chasing side. When the two teams met at the Kassam Stadium in the first half of the season, Oxford United recorded a routine 3-0 win over Doncaster Rovers.

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.
