Our prediction for this League 1 match:
All eyes will be on DW Stadium when Wigan Athletic and Oxford United square off against each other in the League One. The Latics do not seem to be competitive at this level, and, as a result, they sit in the ultimate position in the standings ahead of Matchday 13. Wigan Athletic are on a three-game losing run in the league, and they must be low on spirits ahead of the visit of Oxford United.
The Yellows aim to bounce back from a 2-0 loss to Crewe Alexandra, and they will not have a better chance than this to get back on course. Oxford United are eyeing their second away win of the season as they defeated Accrington 4-1 on the road earlier this term. Wigan defeated Oxford in each of their previous six meetings in the League One, but the time has come for the Latics to put an end to the negative trend.
Highlighted Player (Nathan Cameron):
Born in Birmingham, England, on November 21, 1991, Nathan Cameron is a professional footballer who plays for Macclesfield Town as a defender. Cameron is a product of the Coventry City football school, and he continued wearing the sky blue shirt at the senior level.
He made 48 appearances in the league for Coventry City, but he played for the likes of Nuneaton Town (loan), Northampton Town (loan), and Bury as well before joining Macclesfield Town. Nathan Cameron has one cap for the England U20 team, but he has yet to earn a call-up for the senior team.
The 188-cm-tall defender made his Macclesfield Town debut in the League two in a 2-0 loss to Milton Keynes Dons on November 17, 2018. His primary position is a centre-back, but he is capable of producing fine performances as a right-back as well. His preferred foot is right, and he wears the number 25 shirt at Macclesfield Town.
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.
