      Tip Reasoning

      • Oldham are on a poor run, losing their last two games and conceding seven goals.
      • Forest Green Rovers are also in a poor run losing five of their last six.
      • Oldham games have seen an average of 3.6 goals per game over the past five weeks.
      • Forest Green have been involved in games with an average of 4 goals per game over the past five games.

      Can Oldham stop the rot and pick up a win here?

      Oldham have had a poor couple of weeks, losing their last two games and conceding seven times in that period. This has seen them drop to 19th place in the league. Whilst relegation isn’t an issue for the team, they will be keen to stop this poor form and make a move back into the midtable.

      Oldham haven’t scored too many this season, finding the net just 36 times, a rate of just over a goal a game. They’ve conceded 51 however, 1.54 goals per game on average. In recent weeks this figure has risen dramatically though, with the side conceding an average of 1.8 goals per game over the past five weeks.

      Will Forest Green find their form again?

      Forest Green were fully entrenched in the playoff places not that long ago but they now find themselves six points outside the top seven with their form dropping off over the past six weeks. They’ve lost five games in that time, picking up a solitary point in a 2-2 draw with Forest Green and face a fight to qualify for the playoffs.

      Forest Green have scored 40 goals this season, a record of 1.21 goals per game. Despite their poor form, this record has increased in the past five weeks with the side averaging 1.4 goals per game in that time. Their defensive struggles are highlighted in this period too with the team conceding an average of 2.6 goals per game compared to their season average of 1.15 goals per game.

      Can either side halt their poor run of form?

      These two teams have been involved in games with plenty of goals in recent weeks and their combined goals per game total is 3.8 goals per game. With that in mind we think the two sides will see plenty of goals again this weekend and we’re backing this game to see over 2.5 goals.

      Whilst the game should see plenty of goals, we’re hard pressed to predict a win for either side. We think a draw is the most likely result in this game and with the over 2.5 goal prediction also in our minds, we’re predicting this game to finish 2-2.
