Last Saturday’s EFL League One matchday saw play-off chasing Oxford United draw 1-1 at Fratton Park with Portsmouth. Karl Robinson’s Oxford would have been hoping for all three points heading into the tie, however, were forced to settle for a point against Kenny Jackett’s resilient Pompey. The stalemate left Oxford in fifth place and the home side in 15th.
Jackett stuck with his trusted 4-2-3-1 formation for the game with Oxford, having deviated from the set-up on very few occasions this season. Although favouring the 4-2-3-1, the Englishman has also deployed a 4-4-2 sporadically. In terms of personnel changes, Jackett made no alterations to his side’s starting lineup following their 2-2 away draw to Bristol Rovers last time out.
