Ox­ford can edge Ar­gyle in bat­tle of the strug­glers

The Racing Paper - - Rugby League Football - by Mar­lon Ket­tle

GAME of the day in League One is not at the top of the ta­ble but at the more un­fash­ion­able end be­tween Ox­ford and Ply­mouth.

These two oc­cupy the bot­tom places in the di­vi­sion with only a win apiece and have con­ceded 43 goals be­tween them in their 12 games.

United are in ter­ri­ble form with Ply­mouth’s win last week­end mov­ing them out of the bot­tom spot by a point and leav­ing Ox­ford rock bot­tom.

There should be goals in this game as nei­ther side are de­fen­sively sound and

OX­FORD might just edge this en­counter, so with goals in the off­ing its worth a punt on the 23/10 on of­fer with Pad­dy­power for over 3.5 goals.

Barns­ley take on Lu­ton at Oak­well with both sides in form and look­ing to push them­selves for­ward into a pro­mo­tion place. The Hat­ters are un­beaten in their last five af­ter suf­fer­ing a poor start and although that good form will boost their con­fi­dence the DRAW looks a likely out­come. The Tykes have come into a lit­tle form them­selves with last week’s 4-0 thrash­ing of Peter­bor­ough and it’s worth con­sid­er­ing the 11/4 on of­fer gen­er­ally for the draw.

League One new boys Ac­cring­ton Stan­ley have done fan­tas­ti­cally well since their pro­mo­tion and John Cole­man’s,

left, side take on Brad­ford who are strug­gling near the bot­tom of the ta­ble.

Re­cent bat­tles be­tween the two have re­sulted in

STAN­LEY hav­ing the edge and that’s likely to be the case once again.

They are by no means free scor­ing but keep things tight de­fen­sively so a punt on Ac­cring­ton to win by one goal is worth 29/10 of­fered by Marathon­bet. League lead­ers

PORTSMOUTH take on Wim­ble­don and they are de­cent value at 71/50 for the win with Marathon­bet.
