Cambridge United vs Oxford United Lineups & Team News

Cambridge United

With a negative 2-1-3 record against Oxford United, coach Mark Bommer doesn’t strike us as the sort of manager that knows how to handle this opponent. In two of their last three previous encounters, the 37-year-old manager made some crucial errors, that one might argue gave Oxford the win.

Predicted lineup – Mitov (GK), L. Bennett, R. Bennett, Morrison, Dunk, Digby, McGrandles, Brophy, Lankester, Knibbs & Smith

Oxford United

After a tiresome pre-season, consisting of five friendlies, Oxford United are well-rested and ready to give their first opponent a run for their money. Manager Liam Manning already added two victories over Cambridge to his record. If our Cambridge United vs Oxford United predictions succeed, he’ll have a third one to show off with.

Predicted lineup – Eastwood (GK), Long, Moore, Findlay, Brown, McGuane, Brannagan, Goodrham, Bodin, Browne & Joseph

Player to Watch: Cameron Branagan

If you are wondering how Cameron Branagan managed to score so many goals for Oxford United last season, you should know that the midfielder is on penalty duty for coach Liam Manning. The 27-year-old English midfielder is undoubtedly one of the best players that the coach has to work with, so there’s no debate on whether or not he’ll make it to the starting XI on Saturday. We just hope he brings his A-game for the sake of our Cambridge United vs Oxford United predictions.
