Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Oxford United play host to Doncaster Rovers at the Kassam Stadium on day 13 of the new League One campaign. Oxford United have been scoring goals for fun in the English third tier of late, with the team netting 11 goals in total in previous three league fixtures. The Yellows aim to move a little closer to the play-offs berth and we predict that they are going to adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s football match against Doncaster Rovers.
The Donny aim to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Portsmouth, but beating Oxford United at Kassam Stadium is easier said than done. The Yellows have been impressive in front of goal of late and we predict that they are going to return to winning ways in the League One after sharing the spoils with Accrington Stanley at Wham Stadium. In their last meeting in the league the two teams played out a 2-2 draw.
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.
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.
