Our prediction for this League 1 match:
All eyes will be on Kassam Stadium when Oxford United and Charlton Athletic go head to head in the League One round 34. The Yellows have been playing some low-scoring games of late, with under 2.5 goals being netted in each of their last four league fixtures. Elliott Lee, who suffered an injury in the goalless draw with Peterborough on Tuesday evening, is unlikely to feature against Charlton.
The Red Robins, on the other hand, did well to bounce back from a heavy 3-0 loss to Blackpool, with the team beating Wigan on the road thanks to Chuks Aneke's goal. The capital club aim to move closer to the playoffs berth, and seeing that Oxford United have been struggling in front of goal of late, away win should be considered. Both Ryan Inniss and Marcus Maddison are rated doubtful for the game, while Jake Forster-Caskey has overcome his injury.
Highlighted Player (Aaron Pierre):
Born on February 17, 1993 in Southall, England Aaron Pierre is a professional footballer who plays for Shrewsbury Town in the League One as a defender. Pierre started his youth career at Fulham at the age of 15 and in 2011 he moved to Brentford youth school.
Speaking of his senior career, the 185-cm-tall defender played for the likes of Brentford, Cambridge United, Wycombe Wanderers and Northampton Town before signing a deal with Shrewsbury Town in the summer of 2019. Aaron Pierre signed for the League One side for an undisclosed fee, penning a three-year deal. Despite being born in England, the Shrewsbury Town footballer represents Granada on the international stage.
He received his first call-up for the Grenada national team in September, 2015, but he has yet to find the net with the Spice Boys. The Grenada international’s main position is centre-back, whereas his preferred foot is left.
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.
