Oxford United is out of shape!
The Oxford team stated ambitions for promotion in the Championship during last year's campaign.
Then, as the 4th in the regular season, he joined the playoffs. And he lost it only in the final with a minimum of 1-2 from Wickumb.
During this they are definitely not as successful. Once they are in 11th place in League 1 of England.
But in fact they are only 3 points away from the 6th, last playoff place.
The distance seems small. But this feeling is also deceptive.
Because Oxford United have played 2 games in more than 5th and 6th in the standings.
They perform equally well at home and as guests.
In their last 10 games, however, they have lost many points. Taking only 2 wins, with 4 draws and 4 losses.
Lincoln City is the best guest!
Lincoln, compared to last season, when they finished 16th, are now undoubtedly making a very strong performance.
They are 4th in the English League 1. But the problem is that they are 2 games more than the 5th and 6th.
However, at least for now, their playoffs are relatively safe.
Being 6 points away and only a game more than those who can threaten him.
Lincoln City are a team that plays very hard on the counter-attack. It is no coincidence that they are the strongest visiting team.
They only have 2 losses out there. One of which is from the beginning of the season.
They enter the match after a 1-1 draw against Sunderland in a match for 6 points.
Forecast for Oxford - Lincoln
In the last three matches between these two teams, only one of them has scored goals.
Oxford United won twice twice last season.
But then, as already mentioned, they were the better performing team as a whole.
Now the roles are reversed. And in the first game of the season, Lincoln City won 2-0.
It is very likely that if the trend continues, success will be for them now. And without a goal.
I will play on it then.
