Peterborough United look to make it three wins out of three under boss Steve Evans on Saturday when they travel to Oxford United. What do you think the score will be?

Oxford v Posh - Sky Bet EFL L1

Oxford United -Vs- Peterborough United
Venue: Kassam Stadium
Date: Saturday, 17th March, 2018
Kick-off: 15:00pm

Posh have picked two wins out of two since the arrival of new manager Steve Evans. The first was a flattering 4-1 victory over play-off chasing rivals Charlton Athletic before a battling one-nil victory at basement side Bury. Can Posh make it three out of three when they travel to face the Yellows?

Oxford sit in 17th place, just four points away from the relegation places so they will be desperate for all three points against Posh to keep them away from the trap door. They`ve picked up just one point, in a goalless draw at Northampton Town, from their last five matches. Their last win was a 3-2 victory at Charlton Athletic when they scored in the 89th and 94th minute to claim all three points!

At home, they`ve won two of their last six matches while losing the other four including a seven-nil thumping by Wigan Athletic on the Saturday before Christmas. Their last home match came in mid-February when Plymouth Argyle turned up at the Kassam and went away with a narrow one-nil victory thanks to a goal from central defender Sonny Bradley who powered in a header from a corner in the third minute of added time in the first-half!

Posh are unbeaten in their last seven matches, drawing four of them. They`ve won all three matches since the departure of former boss Grant McCann with David Oldfield overseeing the first of those victories before Evans took over.

Away from home, Posh won two, drawn three and lost just once in their last six away League matches with that sole defeat coming against 9-man MK Dons at the end of last year.

Earlier in the season, the Yellow`s cruised to a four-one victory at the ABAX Stadium. Posh went in to that match having won six of their opening ten matches of the season but had just lost their second League match in the run up to the match against Oxford. The Yellows were on a three game losing streak so the scoreline was a definite shocker! Can Oxford defy the odds again and claim another much needed victory or will Posh win their fourth game on the bounce?

In fact, Oxford have won the last four meetings between the two sides after claiming two-one victories in both the matches last season and a one-nil victory in the match prior to that which came in the 2005/06 season!
