This club has an unbelievable history. They started from the Sunday League (the lowest tier in English football) and were promoted 11 times, and from the 17th tier, they got to the 6th tier. This is their 3rd season in National League South, and in the previous two, they were in the top 7, and the last season they were the leader until the championship was canceled because of the coronavirus.
This season they are one of the strongest teams in the league, and they were the league leaders for the major part of the season, but Maidstone overtook them in the last two months. So, Dorking must settle for a second-place finish.
Dorking is coming to the playoffs in good form with only one defeat in the last nine games, and they scored 27 goals in that game, which is three goals per game. The Dorking attack is the best in this league, by far. They scored unbelievable 101 goals, which is 21 goals better than Maidstone, who is in second place, and 30 goals better than their rival Oxford City. They failed to score in only two games this season, and both were away from home. At their stadium, they scored at least one goal in every game.
Their striker Alfie Rutherford is the league’s top scorer with 30 goals. He contributed to almost 1/3 of Dorking’s goals. Dorking is also the best home side in this league, with 52 points won at their stadium.

Oxford City is playing his seventh season in this league, and only in the last two seasons did they finish in the top 7 (last season, they were 4th at the moment when the season was canceled because of the coronavirus).
Oxford finished the season in 5th place, and they played in the quarter-finals of the playoffs, where they beat Eastbourne 2-0 at home. They are in the run of five games without a defeat, and they have one defeat in the last nine games.
The thing in common for both clubs is a very good attack. Like Dorking, Oxford is also a very good attacking side. Not fantastic as Dorking, but very good. They scored 70 goals this season (the sixth-best attack in the league), and they also scored goals in every game. From 40 games this season, Oxford had finished only four without scoring a goal (only Dorking is better).
This is a game of two great attacking teams and two great goalscorers. Oxford’s striker Joe Iaciofano scored 22 goals this season in the league.

Dorking Wanderers vs. Oxford City Prediction
The stake is big. The winner goes to the playoff final. Both teams want that. But we think no matter how big the stake is, this game will be an entertaining one with a lot of goals. Two good attacking sides and two great goalscorers meet each other head-to-head. Dorking’s pitch is artificial and sometimes is an advantage when they play at home, but Oxford’s pitch also has an artificial surface, and they are used to playing on them. So, Dorking doesn’t have too much advantage this time. This is one of the reasons why we think that will be a lot of goals in this game.
Prediction: BTTS & Over 2.5 Goals
