EFL League One | Peterborough United FC VS Oxford United FC; Thursday, 09 May at 03:00 GMT +8

Home-field advantage is crucial in the head-to-head contests between Oxford and Peterborough this season. Oxford has won all three previous matchups, including the playoff semifinal first leg. The decisive second-leg showdown will determine the League One playoff finalists and whether the comfort of playing in front of home supporters will bring joy to the home team. Peterborough, the EFL Trophy winners, have an exceptional offensive form, having scored three or more goals in their last three straight home games. Despite last season’s playoff semifinal exit, the Posh will be motivated to avoid a similar fate, having triumphed in three out of four H2Hs at London Road and keeping a clean sheet in each. Oxford’s subpar away form and narrow one-goal advantage may affect their ability to maintain their narrow one-goal advantage. Peterborough’s dominance from the first minute could lead to an eventual victory over Oxford in regular time.

Jacob Wakeling is unlikely to be available for the second-leg match against Ghana, while Jeando Fuchs remains sidelined until the end of the campaign. David Ibukun Ajiboye could potentially replace Kwame Poku in the starting XI.

Will Goodwin and Kyle Edwards are expected to miss the rest of the season due to injury, while Sam Long is expected to start. Manager Des Buckingham is likely to maintain his unchanged team, with only one or two changes.

Predicted lineups:


Goalkeeper: Jed Steer
Defenders: Jadel Katongo, Harrison Burrows, Ronnie Edwards, Josh Knight
Midfielders: Ephron Mason-Clark, Kwame Poku, Joel Randall, Archie Collins, Hector Kyprianou
Forwards: Malik Mothersille

Oxford United

Goalkeeper: Jamie Cumming
Defenders: Ciaron Brown, Elliott Moore, Joe Bennett, Fin Stevens
Midfielders: Cameron Brannagan, Tyler Goodrham, Ruben Rodrigues, Josh Murphy, Owen Dale
Forwards: Mark Harris
