Tip Reasoning

  • Oldham have lost eight of their 12 home games this season, conceding 25 goals in the process.
  • The still-managerless Latics have gone seven matches without a win, and won just one of their last 14.
  • Promotion-chasing Sutton have won their last three games.

Oldham in dire straights

Since Oldham managed a 2-1 win at Sutton United in late August, they have won twice in 22 games in all competitions. The Latics remain without a permanent manager, despite well over a month passing since Keith Curle departed, are winless in seven games, are rooted to the foot of the Football League, and saw their midweek 6-0 EFL Trophy loss to Wigan interrupted by fan protests.

Against such a backdrop, it is impossible to back the hosts, who’ve won two and lost eight of their 12 home league games this term, to get anything at all, when promotion-chasing Sutton visit Boundary Park. A run of six wins in 10 has propelled Sutton to third place in League Two, and only three fourth-tier teams can better their return of 35 goals this campaign.

Back visitors to avenge early-season loss

Sutton were still finding their feet at this level when they were defeated by Oldham back in August, and look certain to avenge that loss this Saturday.

As well as having conceded, on average, over two goals per game at Boundary Park this season, Oldham have been shut out in four of their last six games. Their defensive record is the worst in League Two, and almost a quarter of their total goals scored came in one game, namely December’s madcap 5-5 draw with Forest Green.

Backing the visitors for a win is a no-brainer here, and a 2-0 success looks a solid correct score prediction.
