Oldham have failed to their last seven league matches

It seems to be a common theme in League 2 this season, but sides who have a recent history of playing at a higher level have dropped to the bottom tier of the Football League and failed to prove that they are too good for the level. It is something which is certainly true of Oldham Athletic and, although some will point to trouble with the owner as the major concern, they will not be able to argue that the performances on the pitch have left plenty to be desired.

This season has been typical of Oldham in recent years as they have flattered to deceive and are in the midst of a battle for survival. It is not even something which is getting any easier as they have failed to win any of their last seven outings and, although four draws in a row in the build up to this clash is somewhat of an improvement, it is not something which will be enough if the sides below them start to pick up form.

A season to forget

Expectations are always pretty high at Mansfield as they have one of the higher budgets in the division, they are not shy in the transfer market and they have ambitious owners who want to see the club play as high up the pyramid as possible. However, the owners will probably be the first to admit that things have not exactly gone to plan this season.

The Stags are currently just seven points above the bottom of the league, although they go into this match having following a morale boosting 3-0 victory over promotion chasing Bradford at the weekend. Things have not exactly gone to plan defensively, so keeping that clean sheet last time out will be another reason to inspire the Stags to kick on to better things for the remainder of the campaign.

We expect more misery for the hosts

Unfortunately for Oldham, their form in the build up to this match means that we just cannot see them putting a end to it this Tuesday and it appears as though those tough days have a while to run yet. The visitors were excellent on Saturday and will now have some much needed confidence which should be enough to get them over the line. However, there have been false dawns with Mansfield previously this season, so adding the “Draw – No Bet” clause looks to be a wise move to make.

In terms of a correct score tip, we cannot see there being too much to separate the two sides. The hosts have scored in 71% of their home matches and have scored an average of 1.14 goals per game at home. With the visitors scoring in 64% of their away matches and having much more confidence, backing a 2-1 away win looks to be the way to go.
