Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Oxford United will be looking to build on a 3-0 win over Doncaster when they take on Blackpool at Kassam Stadium. The Yellows aim to regain their place in top six, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Blackpool on Matchday 37. The attacking partnership of Taylor and Shodipo has been in a perfect working order of late, and we predict that the duo will make life difficult for the opposition defenders.
The Seasiders, on the other hand, showed character in their last league match, with the team coming from behind to share the spoils with Burton. Blackpool aim to keep their playoffs hopes alive, but given Oxford’s display in the 3-0 win over Doncaster, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the home team. In their last meeting at Kassam Stadium Oxford United defeated Blackpool 2-1.
Highlighted Player (James Henry):
James Henry was born in Reading on 10 June, 1989, but he grew up in Woodley. He began playing football at his home-town club Woodley Saints, but he made progress during his spell at Reading’s youth academy. Henry is a winger who is capable of playing as a centre midfielder as well, but he failed to score for Reading in 10 league appearances for the club.
After ending his loan spells with the likes of Nottingham Forest, Bournemouth, Norwich City and Millwall, he signed a permanent deal with the Lions on 28 July, 2010. Henry signed a three-year deal with Millwall and he made his home debut in a 4-0 win over Hull City.
It has to be noted that Henry played for both Scotland and England at youth level in the past, but he has yet to make his debut for the first team. Henry was born in England, but his parents are Scottish and, as a result, he is eligible to play for both England and Scotland.
