The visitors currently boast a narrow advantage after securing a 1-0 victory in Saturday’s first let at the Kassam Stadium.

Peterborough suffered a 1-0 defeat in Saturday’s first leg, leaving them at risk of suffering playoff semi-final disappointment for a second successive season.

Despite being overcome by the U’s, Posh would have been relieved to keep the deificit to one after falling to a heavy 5-0 defeat in last month’s away league game against Oxford.

Peterborough will now return to the Weston Homes Stadium, where they have racked up 55 goals in 23 home matches to help them finish the season as the league’s highest scorers.

Posh have showcased their firepower in their last three home matches, beating Port Vale 3-0 and thrashing Fleetwood Town 4-1 before playing out a thrilling 3-3 draw with Bolton Wanderers.

They also produced a free-scoring display in December’s home game against Oxford, with Hector Kyprianou, Ricky-Jade Jones and Ryan De Havilland getting on the scoresheet in a resounding 3-0 victory.

Meanwhile, Oxford will carry momentum into Wednesday’s contest after they beat Exeter City to creep into the playoffs on the final day of the season, before they backed up that result with a successful game in Saturday’s home leg against Peterborough.

Club captain Elliott Moore scored the decisive goal in the 53rd minute, heading home from Cameron Brannagan’s corner to give Oxford the crucial lead ahead of the midweek trip to the Weston Homes Stadium.

Although they may have the upper hand, Oxford still have significant work to do if they are to reach the playoff final for the first time since 2019-20.

The U’s can take confidence from the fact that they have put together a four-game unbeaten away run, conceding no more than one goal in any of those four matches.

Oxford’s hopes of protecting their narrow lead could depend on whether they score the first goal, having avoided defeat in all 11 of their away league matches where they opened the scoring.

In the previous 29 meetings between these two teams, Peterborough have claimed 10 victories while Oxford have won 12, and they have drawn in seven. Oxford have scored 41 goals and conceded 36 in the process.
