Oxford UniMatch Preview

22 April 2019

Marcus Braddock looks ahead to the visit of Oxford United

Easter Monday brings us the second instalment of the holiday weekend with a home game against Oxford United. The U's have had a pretty decent run of form recently with a six game unbeaten run capped off with a win at promotion hopefuls Charlton on Friday afternoon. So expect a tough game against a very able team that's lost just once in their last ten games.

Top Scorers (league only)
James Henry 10
Marcus Browne 5
Jamie Mackie 6

Assists
James Henry 5
Cameron Brannigan 5
Luke Garbutt 5

Clean Sheets
Six at home and seven away from home.

Oxford away stats
On average Oxford have earned 0.9 points per away game, winning 14% and drawing 52%.  They've scored 0.95 goals and conceded 1.5 per game on their travels.

Their goals seem to increase as the game goes on with only one goal scored all season in the first fifteen minutes rising to 5 goals in the last fifteen minutes. For some reason there is a spike of nine goals conceded between the 15th and 30th minute and they've also conceded six goals in the final fifteen minutes and the fifteen minuted preceding.

Referee

Christopher Sarginson from Staffs. Games this season: 42. Yellow cards: 125. Red cards: 7.
Assistants: Danny Gratton and Matthew Bristow.
Fourth Official: Nik Barnar

Squad News

David Edwards and goalkeeper Steve Arnold remain on the sidelines.

United will be without suspended goalkeeper Simon Eastwood who was shown a red card in Friday's 2-1 victory over Charlton. Marcus Browne is suspended.

Summary

As I've said, this is looking like a particularly difficult game against an in form team who have drawn eleven times at home in League one, more than any other team in League One. However, our form has been pretty good recently and it wouldn't be the greatest surprise to see us win this one. If we can do that then we're pretty much safe and able to relax a little in the last couple of games.

COYB!!!

Shrewsbury Town were unable to hold on to a 2-1 lead and lose out to Oxford United 2-3.

Greg Docherty and Ollie Norburn’s goals were not enough to see Town earn the win against the U’s.

Team News: Sam Ricketts made one change to the line up for this afternoon’s game against Oxford United. Ryan Sears, who started the last game, made way for James Bolton to return to the starting 11.

First Half:

The first 10 minutes didn’t start as Town would have planned, with the visitors notching a sixth minute goal. Gavin Whyte managed to get on the end of a bouncing ball inside the box to stab home into the opposite corner of the net.

Town were awarded a penalty in the 16th minute after Shaun Whalley was fouled inside the box. Ollie Norburn stepped up to take the spot kick and buried the ball low into the left-hand corner – bringing the Shrews back on level terms.

As time went by Sam Ricketts’ men were growing into the game and looked dangerous carrying the ball forward. Norburn and Greg Docherty both did well to link up the Town defence and the front line.

A poor challenge in the 35th minute saw Ahmed Kashi shown a straight red card by referee Christopher Sarginson. The midfielder flew in towards Tyrese Campbell with his studs showing, which the referee deemed to be dangerous play.

Town got their second goal with just five minutes of regular time remaining in the half. Campbell did well to find Docherty in the box, and with a yard of space the midfielder set himself well and fired the shot into the bottom corner of the net.

The half came to an end with Town making the extra man count. The Shrews created a barrage of chances and made the visitors chase the ball.

Second Half:

The second-half started brightly with both teams looking to be competitive and win duels in the middle of the park. Similar to the first 45 minutes the Town midfield were dispatching balls around the pitch well.

Anthony Grant was given a yellow card in the 56th minute for a late challenge in the middle of the park.

Scott Golbourne and Whalley were very prominent on the right wing and continually applying pressure going forward. The pair linked up well and were managing to fire crosses into the box.

Golbourne was given a yellow card in the 71st minute for challenge in the final third.

Whyte managed to pull the U’s back on level terms in the 72nd minute. The forward latched onto a through ball and slotted the ball under Jonathan Mitchell to earn his second goal of the game.

Town were nearly in again and could have taken the lead in the 77th minute. Golbourne and Whalley linked up well once again, which saw Town’s wide man have a shot at goal. However, Whalley’s shot didn’t hit the target.

The visitors had their tails up and went up the other end and notched another goal. Whyte managed to grab his hat-trick after running through and blasting his shot into the back of the net.

Town were pushing and pushing to get back into the game but were facing a very defensive Oxford.  The main bulk of the Shrews success was on the wings as Alex Gilliead and Whalley looked to fire balls into the box.

Whalley was booked in the latter stages of the game for preventing the U’s from breaking on the counter-attack.

The game came to an end with the visitors taking home all three points with a 2-3 victory.
