Oxford United will be hoping for a better result after the 1-2 League One defeat last time out to Accrington Stanley.
It’s been seldom in recent times that Oxford United have managed to hold out for a full 90 minutes. In fact, The U's have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 games, letting in 9 goals in the process.
Going into this one, Oxford United haven't lost in the league to Shrewsbury Town in their last 4 games.
Shrewsbury Town will come into the match after a 3-0 League One win in the defeat of Plymouth Argyle in their previous outing.
For Shrewsbury Town, the scorers were Shaun Whalley (77') and Nathanael Ogbeta (81'). Will Aimson (52' Own goal) was the scorer for Plymouth Argyle.
The stats don’t lie, and Shrewsbury Town have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, conceding 6 goals in total. Defensively, The Shrews have clearly had some problems. Such a trend isn’t assured to be carried forward into this match, of course.
