Woking vs Oxford United Tips and Prediction
Every year, Oxford United hopes to make a push for promotion from League One, but in all reality, Karl Robinson’s team is already out of the running.
With only five victories from their 16 games in the third tier, the team is eight points behind the top six.
A more encouraging development is that the U’s have lately strung together a three-match winning streak, earning five points from contests against Portsmouth, Bolton Wanderers, and Fleetwood Town.
The only other time they have put together a stretch like that this season was during that run, but Oxford’s last league shutout dates all the way back to August 6.
Although there will be a feeling that Woking should not be classified as the clear underdogs in the FA Cup, Oxford now has to look to avoid an upset.
In their last nine games across all competitions, the Cardinals have only lost once, to league-leading Notts County at home by a score of 3-2.
Since then, four victories from five games have been recorded, including a victory over Southend United in the fourth round of this tournament’s qualification.
Since October 22, Darren Sarll’s team has amassed 10 out of a possible 12 points in the National League, bringing the team into fifth place in the standings. Woking’s previous six goals have all come after the break, so if Oxford wants to have the best chance of moving on to the second round, they will need to be as physically prepared as their hosts.
We anticipate this contest to be far more competitive than many may have anticipated, given their respective forms. However, there is little doubt that the visitors’ ranks contain the stronger talent, and we believe they will put up a valiant fight to win.
