Crewe v Oxford Predictions

Saturday afternoon sees a midtable clash in League One as Crewe Alexandra can potentially leapfrog Oxford United and move up into the top half with a win here.

It's been a funny, up and down season for Crewe, who haven't won back-to-back games since before Christmas, while recent weeks have seen them alternating between (three) wins and (three defeats) with a 2-1 defeat at home to league leaders Hull City (settled with a match-winner from Mallik Wilks in injury time) on Good Friday before bouncing back with a solid, impressive 2-0 win at form side MK Dons on Easter Monday, scoring both goals early before seeing out the lead professionally - registering just 30% possession at the Stadium MK but putting in an organised display to keep Russell Martin's tiki-taka side frustrated.

Oxford, meanwhile, have lost four of their last five matches and really need to get back to winning ways here if they're to keep their increasingly faint hopes of another play-off finish alive. Karl Robinson's men have been streaky this season, with only a remarkable mid-season run of nine wins from 10 games keeping their 2020-21 campaign being anything but ordinary - it was four wins in 16 prior to that run, and it's been three wins in 12 since.

Easter Weekend - with a 3-1 defeat at Sunderland followed by a 2-1 home defeat to Accrington Stanley - may well have settled matters, but as long as they remain within six points of sixth place, there's plenty to fight for in the run-in, even if they're down in 12th.

The reverse fixture back in November - a 2-0 win for Crewe at the Kassam Stadium - was the first time these two clubs have met since the 2011/12 season.

Crewe Team News

Top scorer Mikael Mandron (nine goals) had been left out of Crewe's starting line-up in recent outings, but he marked his return with two goals inside 20 minutes at MK Dons and will surely keep his place up top as a result, with Owen Dale and Charlie Kirk set to continue supporting the striker in a three-pronged attack.

Mandron deservedly stole the headlines last time out, but credit must go to goalkeeper Will Jaaskelainen - who made a pair of outstanding saves to keep a clean sheet - and centre-half partnership Omar Beckles and Oliver Lancashire, who put in a strong performance as the MK Dons dominated possession and territory, putting them under pressure.

We could see an unchanged XI here, with Luke Murphy alongside Tom Lowery and Ryan Wintle, with Callum Ainley offering an alternative option.

Oxford Team News

Mark Sykes is expected to return to Oxford's midfield here, having served a one-match ban last time out following his pair of booking in Good Friday's tetchy 3-1 defeat at Sunderland, with Cameron Brannagan and James Henry set to start alongside him in a midfield three, while Liam Kelly and Luton loanee Elliott Lee - who scored his third goal in the 11th appearance of his loan spell in Monday's defeat to Accrington Stanley - offer alternative options.

Otherwise it's expected to be business as usual for the visitors, with star striker Matt Taylor - top scorer this season with 14 goals - set to lead the line as ever, flanked by Olamide Shodipo and Brandon Barker, with Karl Robinson set to mirror the opposition's 4-3-3 shape, having seldom deviated from it this season.
