Oxford City are on a seven-match unbeaten run and look to extend that streak today when they welcome Hungerford Town to Court Place Farm. The two sides met on Boxing Day in a 1-1 draw at Hungerford, and Oxford then returned to winning ways on 29 December with an impressive 2-0 win away to Wealdstone.
One of the keys to Oxford’s fortunes has been star striker Kabongo Tshimanga, who has already scored 11 goals this season, and hope to add to his tally this afternoon against a Hungerford side that struggle on the road.
Oxford have key defender Joe Oastler back from suspension and also hope to have Zac McEachran back after he missed the last game with an injury.
Hungerford can’t seem to get it right when playing away from home this season. Already tipped for relegation before the start of the season, their struggles away from home have left them in the relegation zone already. They have only picked up four points in 11 games on the road this season, and against one of the league’s form sides we don’t really give them much chance.
The visitors suffered a quite embarrasing defeat at home to Truro City only a couple of days ago and will also be without Marvel Ekpiteta today after he picked up an injury against Truro.
Oxford City should win this by a goal at the very least.
