Our prediction for this League 1 match:
All eyes will be on DW Stadium when Wigan Athletic and Oxford United face each other in the League One derby. The Latics are eager to stay in automatic promotion places, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in the postponed fixture. Callum Lang should be recalled to the starting XI, while Charlie Wyke is a major doubt. Both Jordan Cousins and Scott Smith are sidelined with injuries.
The Yellows, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Sheffield Wednesday (3-2) and Gillingham (7-2). Since Oxford United have been scoring goals for fun of late, we believe that punters from all four corners of the world can find value in betting on over 2.5 goals. A man to watch in the away team will be Cameron Brannagan, who scored four goals at the weekend, while Gorrin is sidelined with injury.
Highlighted Player (Jason Kerr):
Jason Kerr is a professional footballer who plays for St Johnstone as a defender. Born in Edinburgh, Scotland, on February 6, 1997, Jason Kerr is a product of the St Johnstone football academy. He started his senior career in 2014, and after ending his loan spells with East Fife and Queen of the South, he returned to the McDiarmid Park outfit in 2018.
He made his debut with the Saints in the Scottish Cup game against Albion Rovers on January 29, 2019. Jason Kerr has six caps with the Scotland U21 team, but he has yet to receive a call-up for the senior team.
He scored his first goal for St Johnstone in a 4-1 defeat to Rangers on February 27, 2018. His primary position on the field is a centre-back, but he is capable of producing good displays as a central midfielder as well. His preferred foot is right, and he wears the number 15 shirt at St Johnstone.
Highlighted Team (Oxford United):
Oxford United are one of the oldest clubs in the League One as they were founded back in 1893. However, Oxford United adopted their current name 67 years later and have been playing under it ever since.
Over the years the Yellows have built a great rivalry with Swindon Town and there have always been fireworks in clashes between the two sides. Oxford United play home matches at Kassam Stadium, the venue with the capacity of 12,500. The stadium was built in 1997 and has been Oxford United’s home ground ever since. The Boys from Up the Hill are well known for their yellow and blue colours, but they play their away games in dark blue (with a little yellow) or black kits.
Oxford’s player with the most league appearances is John Shuker, playing 478 games for the club from 1962 to 1977. On the other hand, Jim Magilton is the club’s most capped player in internationals, playing 18 games for Northern Ireland.
