              Burton Albion vs Oxford United Preview, Tips & Stats

              Burton Albion host Oxford United at Pirelli Stadium this Saturday in League One. Oxford look to grab a spot in the Play-offs whereas Burton aim to put some more room between themselves and the relegation zone.

              Burton currently sit 20th in League One after 41 games. The Brewers have ten wins, ten draws and 21 losses, leaving them on 40 points, just two points above the relegation zone.

              In their last five games in all competitions, Burton have one draw and four losses.

              The trip to Portsmouth saw John Brayford convert Burton’s only shot on target in the 80th minute, but it was too late as Kusini Yengi had already found the back of the net twice to give Pompey the 2 - 1 win. Reece Cole scored the only goal of the game for Exeter in the 41st minute and despite the red card to Exeter’s Zak Jules in the first half, Burton couldn’t take advantage and slumped to a 1 - 0 loss.

              Ryan Loft scored the only goal of the game in the 83rd minute for Port Vale to give them the 1 - 0 win over a Burton side who had just two shots on target. Burton finally picked up a point, this came on the road against Wigan. An own goal from Samuel Joseph Hughes gave Wigan the lead late in the first half but a goal from Brayford early in the second half rescued a 1 - 1 draw for Burton.

              The last time out for Burton was against Barnsley. Joe Powell gave Burton the lead in the first half but a brace from John McAtee and a goal from Luca Connell in the second half gave Barnsley the 3 - 1 win.

              Oxford United, on the other hand, currently sit seventh in League One. In 41 games, Oxford have 19 wins, ten draws and 12 losses which leaves them on 67 points, equal with Lincoln in the last Play-off spot.

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

              Oxford took a lead over Cheltenham into halftime with Josh Murphy’s goal in first half added time. Will Ferry did equalise for Cheltenham with ten minutes to go, but Greg Leigh popped up with a goal in the 88th minute to give Oxford the 2 - 1 win. The trip to Bolton was one to forget for Oxford. Nathanael Ogbeta, Josh Dacres-Cogley, George Thomason, Aaron Collins and Josh Sheehan all scored in the 5 - 0 win for Bolton.

              The next time out saw Oxford bounce back against Port Vale. Ciaron Brown and Murphy were both on the scoresheet in the 2 - 0 win for Oxford over a Port Vale that had zero shots on target. Oxford opened the scoring early in the second half through Billy Bodin but Jack Price scored in the 82nd minute to force a 1 - 1 draw for Shrewsbury.

              The most recent outing for Oxford was against Fleetwood. A brace from Mark Harris and goals from Cameron Brannagan and Owen Dale gave Oxford the 4 - 0 win.

              Burton and Oxford have met 23 times in their histories, with the first meeting coming as recently as 2010. Oxford have the better record in the fixture with ten wins in comparison to Burton’s seven wins, the other six games ending in a draw.
