            Peterborough vs Oxford United: Preview & Prediction

            ABAX Stadium hosts Peterborough and Oxford United for the second leg of the League One Play-off Semi Finals. Oxford picked up a big win in the first leg but with only one goal, Peterborough can turn it around.

            Date: 08/05/2024

            Kick off time: 20:00

            Location: ABAX Stadium

            The first leg saw Oxford pick up a win, but a 1 - 0 win is not too high a mountain to climb for Peterborough who could make the comeback to secure a spot at Wembley.

            Peterborough finished the League One season in fourth after 46 games. The Posh picked up 25 wins, nine draws and 12 losses, leaving them on 84 points, eight points from Derby in the last automatic promotion spot.

            The Posh had the best scoring record in the league, joining top with Bolton, scoring 89 goals in 46 games which gives them an average of 1.93 goals a game. However, Peterborough struggled at the other end of the pitch this season. The Posh conceded 61 goals but did keep 14 clean sheets.

            Oxford United finished just below Peterborough in the normal season in fifth. In 46 games, The Us picked up 22 wins, 11 draws and 13 losses which left them on 77 points, just three points within the Play-offs but seven points from Peterborough above them.

            The Us were amongst the goals this season, scoring 79 goals in 46 games, an average of 1.72 goals a game. However, Oxford also struggled defensively this season, conceding 56 goals and keeping 12 clean sheets.

            Peterborough and Oxford United have met 46 times in their histories, with the first meeting coming back in 1966. Oxford have the better record in the fixture with 21 wins in comparison to Peterborough’s 16 wins, the other nine games ending in a draw.

            The last five games in this fixture have seen two wins for Peterborough, two wins for Oxford and one draw. Only one of the last five games has seen both teams on the scoresheet.

            Recent Form

            In their last five games in all competitions, Peterborough have two wins, one draw and two losses.

            Bosun Lawal opened the scoring for Fleetwood in the first minute but Malik Mothersille equalised before the halftime whistle. Archie Finn Collins put Peterborough ahead with ten minutes to go and Jonson Clarke-Harris grabbed two goals in extra time to give Peterborough the 4 - 1 win.

            The trip to the Memorial Stadium saw The Posh take the lead right on the halftime whistle through Joel Randall. The second half was quiet, but Ricky-Jade Jones popped up with a goal in the fifth minute of extra time to secure the 2 - 0 win for Peterborough over Bristol Rovers.

            However, the next time out for Peterborough saw them on the other side of the 2 - 0 scoreline against Cheltenham. Joe Nuttall and Matt Taylor both scored in the first half. The Posh had just three shots on target in 66% of the possession and failed to convert any of them and slumped to a 2 - 0 loss.

            The last game of the normal season, Peterborough hosted Bolton. Before the ten minute mark, a goal from Kyle Dempsey and a penalty from Dion Charles gave Bolton the 2 - 0 lead. However, before the 80 minute mark, Mothersille grabbed a brace and Randall popped up with a goal to put The Posh ahead. Just three minutes later Cameron Jerome found the back of the net to rescue a 3 - 3 draw for Bolton.


            In their last five games in all competitions, Oxford United have three wins, one loss and one draw.

            The last time these two sides met in the normal season, Oxford picked up a big win. A penalty from Mark Harris and goals from Josh Murphy and Rubem Rodrigues gave Oxford the 3 - 0 lead at halftime. Another goal from Rodrigues and a late goal from Billy Bodin wrapped up a big 5 - 0 win for Oxford with Peterborough having just one shot on target in 70% of the possession.

            However, Oxford were brought back down to earth against ten-man Lincoln. A penalty from Daniel Madriou just after halftime was the only goal of the game as Lincoln held on for a 1 - 0 win despite Dylan Duffy being sent off with ten minutes to go.

            An own goal from Sam Long gave Stevenage the 1 - 0 lead at halftime but a penalty from Cameron Brannagan drew Oxford level on the hour mark. Despite having 25 shots with six of them on target, Oxford couldn’t convert and had to settle for a 1 - 1 draw.

            The last game of the normal season saw a goal from Mark Harris and a penalty from Brannagan gave Oxford the 2 - 0 lead over Exeter City at halftime. Millenic Alli got Exeter on the scoresheet early in the second half, but Oxford held on for the 2 - 1 win.


            The first leg of the Play-off Semi Finals saw Oxford host Peterborough. Elliot Moore scored the only goal of the game early in the second half to give Oxford the 1 - 0 win over The Posh.

            Footy Accumulators Prediction

            Despite the win for Oxford in the first leg, Peterborough are likely to win this weekend and by a big enough margin to secure the spot in the Final. Peterborough 2 - 0 Oxford United
