Bolton Wanderers vs Oxford United

, KO: 20:00 Mar 12, 2024, Toughsheet Community Stadium
Oxford United

Bolton Wanderers continue their pursuit of the leaders as they welcome Oxford United to the Toughsheet Community Stadium for a midweek League One fixture. The Trotters are solid at home and will be confident of seeing off Oxford who are poor travellers.

It has been a tricky period for Bolton Wanderers, who have picked up just one win from their last five matches. The good news is they are unbeaten in their last three matches and are just six points off the pace on the League One standings.

Bolton Wanderers have been held in their last two matches, playing out successive 2-2 draws at Barnsley and Exeter City. The good news is that they have been on the road recently and are returning to Toughsheet which has been a solid hunting ground.

Ian Evatt’s men head into Tuesday’s clash unbeaten in 10 of their last 11 League One home matches. They have picked up eight wins in that run and triumphed 2-0 over Cambridge United in their previous fixture in front of their fans.

Oxford United were victorious last time out in League One as they triumphed 2-1 over Cheltenham Town. They looked to be headed for a draw after Josh Murphy’s effort was cancelled out by the visitors but Gregory Leigh netted the winner minutes from time.

That was the first win in five matches for Oxford United, who have found things difficult in recent weeks. Desmond Buckingham’s men remain on the hunt for a promotion playoff finish as they sit just one point off the top six.

Oxford United usually find things difficult on their travels and have won just once in their last seven away matches. They are also winless in the last four fixtures in that run and were beaten 2-1 by Portsmouth in their previous fixture on the road.
