Two sides looking to return to winning ways meet in League One this weekend as Oxford United face Wycombe Wanderers.
Oxford United currently sit 2nd in League One with nine wins, one draw and three losses from thirteen games so far this season.
The U's came into the season expecting by most to mount a serious push for automatic promotion and it's so far so good in that regard as they find themselves in the top two places in the league table.
They are, though, coming into this game amidst a minor blip in form having failed to win any of their last two games, with a 1-1 draw against Blackpool being followed up by a 2-0 defeat in Wigan in midweek.
Given they won all of their prior four games to the Blackpool fixture there won't be much concern over these two results and manager Liam Manning will expect his side to bounce back immediately here.
Their form at home has been good in general as they enter this game having won three and drawn one of their last four games on their own patch.
The U's need a win here to avoid sliding into a rut and despite the underwhelming results of their last two outings there are plenty of reasons to believe they'll take three points here.
Wycombe Wanderers currently sit 10th in League One with six wins, two draws and five losses from thirteen games this season.
Wycombe have had a solid start to the campaign given quite few punters predicted they'd drop off significantly after a couple of strong seasons but as they sit just three points shy of the play-off places they'll be pretty with where they currently stand.
They're not in the best form at present, however, as they enter this game having won one, drawn one and lost two of their last four matches so they'll really be looking to claim a win against the odds here.
Their most recent outing saw them fall to a 2-4 loss at home to Bolton Wanderers in a game in which they were firmly second best.
Their away form is hit and miss having won two, drawn one and lost two of their last five games on the road but having taken four points from their last two away games there is definitely cause fr optimism coming into this fixture.
Wycombe are unbeaten in their last five head-to-head meetings with Oxford and have won the last three on the bounce so they can take confidence from how they usually match up with the U's, but this Oxford side are a level above what what they've been in recent season's so it feels time for them to claim an overdue win against Wycombe.
For our Oxford vs. Wycombe prediction, we're going for a 2-1 win for the home side.
