It's all to play for for Oxford United and Portsmouth with their League One play-off semi-final finely poised at 1-1 heading into Monday's second leg at the Kassam Stadium. Oxford claimed a draw at Fratton Park on Friday and will now look to use home advantage to progress to the final.

Oxford United Form


Oxford earned their spot in the League One play-offs on the back of five straight victories, and that became six games unbeaten courtesy of a 1-1 draw in the first leg against Portsmouth. Ronan Curtis struck for Pompey before Marcus Browne levelled two minutes before half-time and that was the way it stayed.

Portsmouth Form


The draw in the first leg made it four games without a win for Portsmouth, who have lost to Arsenal in the FA Cup and Peterborough and drawn with Fleetwood and Oxford. Prior to that, Kenny Jackett's side had won 13 of their previous 15 matches. Have they lost their way at the wrong time?

It was a 1-1 draw when they met at Fratton Park in November and the same scoreline again on Friday in the first leg.

Oxford United vs Portsmouth Match Up


There has very little to split Oxford and Portsmouth in three games this season, other than an extra-time winner for Pompey in the EFL Trophy. It was tight and tense in the first leg and clear-cut chances were limited, and that should be the case again on Monday with so much to play for.
