Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Saturday’s football game at Kassam Stadium pits together Oxford United and Fleetwood Town, the two teams who sit in the middle of the table ahead of Matchday 27. The Yellows are on a six-game winning run in the League One, and it is more than obvious that they are determined to secure promotion to the Championship. Oxford United have been impressive in front of goal in 2021, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against Fleetwood.
Despite failing to find the net in the midweek clash, experienced attacker Matt Taylor is likely to lead the line for the hosts. The Fishermen, on the other hand, failed to win the previous seven league fixtures. Given Oxford United’s form in the second half of the season, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. Joel Coleman is likely to miss the game through injury for the visitors.
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 (Fleetwood):
Known for their attacking style of play, Fleetwood Town are a professional football club based in Fletwood, Lancashire. The Fishermen play their home matches at Highbury Stadium, the venue with the capacity of 5,327 (2,672 seated), with the team wearing red and white shirts in home matches.
On the other hand, Fleetwood footballers are dressed in yellow when playing on the travels. The original club was founded back in 1908 under the name of Fleetwood FC and 69 years later they were re-established as Fleetwood Town F.C. In 1998 the club was renamed to Fleetwood Wanderers after the second reformation.
Legendary England footballer Joey Barton is considered one of the club’s most notable coaches. Barton, who was known for his incidents on the field, has been in charge since June 2, 2018. Neighbouring club Blackpool are regarded as one of Fleetwood’s main rivals. The Fishermen have built up rivalries with Morecambe and Preston North End as well.
