Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Oxford United and Doncaster Rovers take on each other in a highly-anticipated League One game at Kassam Stadium. The Yellows aim to make amends for a 2-0 loss to Hull City, and a win over Doncaster Rovers will see them keep their playoffs hopes alive. Oxford boss Karl Robinson has no fresh injury worries, but he could opt to make changes to the starting XI that faced the Tigers. Both Barker and Taylor are pushing for a start.
The Donny, on the other hand, have been struggling in front of goal of late, with the team failing to find the net in the previous two league fixtures. David Blunt’s men are on a four-match losing run on the road, which is probably the main reason why we are tempted to put our money on the Yellows this time out. Teenage midfielder Scott Robertson, who suffered an injury at the weekend, is unlikely to feature against Oxford United.
Highlighted Player (Elliott Moore):
Born in Coalville, England on March 16, 1997 Elliott Moore is an English footballer who plays for Oxford United as a centre-back. Moore has one cap with the England U18 team, while making two appearances for the England U20 team.
The 196-cm tall defender is a product of Leicester City football school, joining the club at the age of 6, but he did not enjoy a first-team football with the Foxes. He made his first appearances for Leicester City senior team on July 19, 2017 against WBA at the Asia Trophy. After spending a couple of seasons on loan at OH Leuven, Elliott Moore returned to England in the summer of 2019, signing a contract with League One side Oxford United.
Moore made his League One debut against Sunderland on August 3, 2019. The two teams played out a 1-1 draw at Stadium of Light in the opening match of the season, with Elliott Moore coming from the bench in the dying minutes of the game.
Highlighted Team (Doncaster):
Based in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, Doncaster Rovers are an English football club that compete in the League One. Keepmoat Stadium is the club’s home ground. The venue was opened on August 3, 2007 and it can hold up to 15,231 spectators.
Doncaster Rovers footballers wear white shirts with red stripes and white shorts when playing on home soil, whereas the club’s away colours are dark blue and red. Speaking of the Rovers’ history, the club was established back in 1879 by Alber Jenkins, who worked as a fitter at Doncaster’s Great Northern Railway.
Doncaster Rovers shared the spoils with Rawmarsh in their first ever game. The likes of Rotherham United, Barnsley, Grimsby Town and Scuntorpe United are considered the club’s main rivals. Over the years Doncaster fans have developed a rivalry with Plymout Argule as there have been fireworks in their games. Donny Dog, that wears a red and white jersey, is the club’s mascot.
