Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Kassam Stadium will host Saturday’s postponed League One fixture between Oxford United and Swindown Town. Oxford showed character in a 1-1 draw with Portsmouth, but they need to keep on making progress if they are to move closer to the playoffs berth. The Yellows are after their third home win of the season, and we are positive that they will leave their hearts on the field.
The Robins, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 1-0 loss to Lincoln, with the team taking no more than three shots on target in the midweek clash. Since Swindon Town have already suffered four defeats on the road in the 2020/21 League One season, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Oxford United, who have been showing signs of improvement in recent weeks. In their last meeting in the League One, back in 2017, Oxford defeated Swindon 2-1.
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 (Swindon):
Founded by Reverend William Pitt of Liddington in 1879, Swindon Town are an English football club which compete in the League Two. The Robins welcome their rivals at County Ground, the stadium which can hold up to 15,728 spectators (all-seated), with the team wearing red shirts and white shorts when playing at home.
Gray is the dominant colour of the club which turned professional in 1894. Oxford United are considered the team’s main rivals, but the Robins have rivalries with Bristol City, Bristol Rovers, and Reading as well. In 1969 Swindon Town did remarkably well to win the English League Cup, with the team beating Arsenal 3-1 in the title game at Wembley Stadium.
John Trollope is the club’s player with most appearances as he played 889 first-team games from 1960 to 1980. Premier League attacker Charlie Austin is one of the most notable footballers who played for Swindon Town in the past.
