Ipswich did a great job in their last League One appearance away to Wycombe when they recorded a pretty convincing 1:4 victory, being far more creative with their time with the ball.
They conceded first in the 17th but bounced back with an equalizer only ten minutes later, truly unleashing their offensive potential in the second when they managed to be effective three more times, and deservedly celebrated in this encounter.
Ipswich is currently at the 9th spot in the general rankings, for points in deficit compared to their opponent in the upcoming clash.
Full left-back Coulson (6/0) is doubtful for the hosts.
Like their opponents, Oxford appeared quite well in their last League One fixture at home against underdogs from Morecambe, as they routinely celebrated with a 3:1 victory.
They took the lead first in the 29th but were punished with an equalizer later in the 64th as they missed a penalty twelve minutes earlier, however, demonstrated a better overall quality, bouncing back with two more scored in the continuation and continued their positive run in League One.
Oxford occupies the playoff leading 6th spot in the rankings, having seven points less than leaders from Wigan.
The guests miss defensive midfielder Gorrin (13/0), plus goalkeeper Stevens (13/0).

As interesting as it gets
Overly looking, Oxford is looking slightly better lately, but honestly not in a way to be fully trusted at the moment. Ipswich, on the other side, is the most potent squad so far, but simply concede too frequently, so pretty much the same thing applies to them as well.
Avoiding any outcomes and opting for a high number of goals from both sides is seeming like the best bet in my opinion, as each of them definitely fell more comfortably in the front.
