Peterborough To Win

Peterborough are 1-0 down in this tie following the defeat away at Oxford in the first leg. But they will still be confident they can get to Wembley thanks to their record against their opponents. They were unlucky to come away from the Kassam Stadium with nothing after having more shots and more shots on target than the hosts.

The Posh are unbeaten against Oxford in their previous five home meetings, winning three and drawing two. Although they need two goals to overturn the deficit, I expect the home side to win on the night at the very least. Therefore, I am backing Peterborough To Win.

Both Teams To Score? No

This fixture doesn’t have a great recent record for goals with only one of the last five games seeing both teams on the scoresheet. The home team has won the game to nil in all three meetings this season, while Oxford have failed to score on their last two visits to the Weston Homes Stadium.

With a place at Wembley at stake, we could be in for a tense game on Wednesday evening, and if Peterborough level the game early, it could be a tough night for Oxford United, which is why I’m backing No for Both Teams To Score.

Ephron Mason-Clark To Score

As Peterborough need to score to claw the tie back into their favour, they will look to left winger Ephron Mason-Clark to grab the goal. The loanee from Coventry City has found the net 19 times this season in all competitions.

Expect the hosts to get on the front foot early and create plenty of chances, with Mason-Clark getting the lion’s share of opportunities to be the hero for the Posh. He may be without a goal in the last six games, but this would be the perfect time to end his drought. That’s why I’m backing Ephron Mason-Clark To Score.

Cameron Brannagan To Be Booked

You can expect the referee to brandish a few cards in a game where both teams fight tooth and nail for victory. Oxford will be determined to hold to their 1-0 advantage, which could lead to them conceding some cynical fouls and a player or two landing in the book.

The most likely of whom would be Cameron Brannagan. The midfielder picked up nine yellow cards this season and I wouldn’t be surprised if he collects his tenth on Wednesday evening. That’s why I’m backing Cameron Brannagan To Be Booked.
