Oxford host Southend on Saturday afternoon at the Kassam Stadium with the hosts hoping to climb the table into a playoff position with a victory. Read the Oxford v Southend match preview and predictions below.

It’s tight at the top of the League One table and Oxford Utd are sitting just below the playoff positions in 8th place. A win on Saturday could lift them up to 5th, although both Fleetwood and Portsmouth have a game in hand over them.

Karl Robinson’s side come into this match on the back of 3 consecutive victories having scored a total of 9 goals and conceded not one in those matches. Oxford are in great form and will settle for nothing other than maximum points against a Southend side at the other end of the table.

Southend are in deep trouble in League One having collected just 16 points from a possible 99 so far this season. They’re 2nd bottom in the table and a hefty 15 points from safety with just 11 games remaining. A drop into League Two looks set for Sol Campbell’s side who have the worst defensive record in the league having conceded 82 goals in 33 games. His side have now suffered five consecutive losses and leaked 12 goals in those games which won’t do a lot for confidence heading into Saturday’s match.

Oxford v Southend Prediction

Southend look set for relegation and have been unable to put up a last minute fight to stay up whereas Oxford are fighting for promotion at the other end of the table. Where Oxford have scored 9 and conceded 1 in their last 4, Southend have conceded 10 and scored 2. A home win is fully expected and it’s likely that Oxford will be able to extend their run of games without conceding to 4 in a row.
