Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Oxford United will be looking to build on a 3-1 win over Bolton when they host Fleetwood Town to their Kassam Stadium on Matchday 11. The Yellows aim to keep on climbing the standings, and we are positive that they will stick to their attacking style of play against the Cod Army. Steve Seddon is pushing for a rare start after finding the net in the last league match, but Karl Robinson is unlikely to make too many changes to the team that defeated the Trotters.
Fleetwood, on the other hand, proved their worth in a 3-0 win over Accrington, with the team regaining a much-needed confidence. The Cod Army, though, were beaten by Oxford in each of their last two meetings at Kassam Stadium, and we do not believe that they are capable of grabbing something from the midweek clash. Both Michael Devlin and Darnell Johnson are sidelined with injuries, while Joe Garner will be assessed ahead of the kick-off.
Highlighted Player (Yanic Wildschut):
Yanic-Sonny Wildschut is a Dutch football player who was born in Amsterdam on 1 November, 1991. He was part of Ajax academy during his youth career and he made his senior debut for Zwolle in the Jupiler League. After playing 33 matches for Zwolle, the pacey winger joined VVV-Venlo on 29 June, 2011 and in 2013 he moved to Heerenveen.
He was soon sent on loan to ADO Den Haag and after making seven appearances for the club, he joined English side Middlesbrough on 1 September, 2014. Wildschut scored his first goal for the Boro in a 3-0 victory over Rotherham on 1 November, 2014. However, he played just 12 games for Middlesbrough in the Championship.
On 2 October, 2015 he was sent on loan to Wigan Athletic and three months later he signed a permanent deal with the Latics. You should have in mind that Yanic has 10 caps for Netherlands U21 team. Wildschut is a winger, but he is capable of playing as a centre forward as well.
