Our Top Oxford United vs Accrington Stanley Predictions

Liam Manning’s Oxford United hosts point-hungry Accrington Stanley on the 7th of May at Kassam Stadium. It’s a classic can’t-miss English League One brawl that we highly recommend. If you are searching for more of our best football tips for today, you should go to our designated page.

Over 1.5 Oxford United Goals

Sadly, for Accrington’s fans, their beloved team will not only get relegated but the fact that coach John Coleman’s side will go down as the 2nd-weakest backline is simply an insult to injury. Oxford United’s desire to put smiles on their fans’ faces surely means Sunday’s League One brawl is destined to be one of the more interesting events this week.

We all remember what happened in the last game between Oxford United and Accrington Stanley at Kassam Stadium, right? The U’s obliterated Accrington 5-1.

Oxford United to Win

The U’s have the three points ripe for the plucking as not only will they have the home-field advantage at Kassam Stadium but their momentum is second to none. With two back-to-back victories, coach Liam Manning’s boys will be eager to put an end to their 2022/23 League One campaign with style.

And they’ll surely have a potent chance of doing so as up against them we have lackluster Accrington Stanley who are only a spot above the bottom of the table. The visitors’ chance for salvation is long gone and we feel this would be a crucial part of the success of our Oxford United vs Accrington Stanley prediction.

Oxford United odds: 57/100 (1.57) – 62.0%

Draw odds: 63/20 (4.15) – 23.0%

Accrington Stanley odds: 43/10 (5.30) – 15.0%

At 43/10 (5.30), Accrington Stanley’s 15.0% win probability is simply laughable and we have to agree with the bookies on this one. Oxford United are the expected winners at 57/100 (1.57) as their chance to poach the three points is simply staggering – 62.0%.

Oxford United vs Accrington Stanley Lineups & Team News

Oxford United

With 11 victories, 14 draws, and 20 losses, it’s fair to say Oxford United survived another season in the English League One. The 47 points that coach Liam Manning’s boys acquired throughout the campaign will be enough for 2023/24 League One participation as well and we do hope to see more of the same from the U’s as the last two league games ended with a 4-0 and 3-0 wins from the team.

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

Accrington Stanley

Accrington Stanley’s last week brawl was a must-win. However, after 90 minutes of football, Cambridge United patted themselves on the back for a job well done after they pipped Stanley with a 1-2 win at Wham Stadium. Surely, the loss was a massive blow to coach John Coleman’s survival ambitions, and seeing as the morale is likely at an all-time low, we think our Oxford United vs Accrington Stanley predictions are a slam dunk.

Predicted lineup – Jensen (GK), Nottingham, Tharme, Rodgers, Conneely, Martin, McConville, Clark, Hamilton, Lowe & Pressley

Starting Lineups

Player to Watch: Cameron Brannagan

Surprisingly or not, it’s central midfielder Brannagan who’s Oxford United’s most lethal finisher this season. Cameron Brannagan, 26, has nine goals to his name in the 2022/23 League One campaign and we believe Sunday’s showdown versus Accrington Stanley might be his swan song with the U’s as transfer rumors regarding the player intensify.

Surely, the 26-year-old box-to-box midfielder will have a busy game as the visitors are going all-out for the three points but if anyone at coach Liam Manning can make a difference on Sunday, it’s Cameron Brannagan.
