Competition: League Two
Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 5/6 @ 888sport
In a contest that could see a string of chance at both ends of the pitch, Oldham will host Manfield from behind closed doors on Wednesday night.
Starting with the hosts, crashing out of the FA Cup in thumping fashion over the weekend, Oldham have continued on a worrying run of form over the past month. In their 22 League Two matchups so far this season, they have recorded eight wins, four draws and 10 defeats, scoring 34 and conceding 38 in return. Although they might open the midweek fixtures sat just a single point adrift of breaking into the top-half of the table, it should be noted that Oldham hold the second-worst defensive record in the division. As for their recent run of results, hit with a 4-1 defeat against Championship side Bournemouth on FA Cup duties last time out, Wednesday’s hosts have managed to win just one of their last six matchups across all formats. However, it is also worth highlighting that eight of Oldham’s last nine fixtures have finished with both teams finding the net.
As for the visitors, while Mansfield might have also seen their FA Cup run come to an end over the weekend, the Stags have enjoyed an eye-catching resurge. In their 22 League Two matchups so far this season, they have recorded five wins, 11 draws and six defeats, scoring 28 and conceding 28 in return. Playing their way away from the drop zone and opening the midweek fixtures holding a points tally of 26, Mansfield know that victory on Wednesday would see them move within striking distance of the top-half. As for their recent run of results, despite their 2-1 loss against Cheltenham on FA Cup duties over the weekend, Mansfield have won their last three fourth-tier contests on the bounce. With four of their last five matchups across all formats finishing with both teams finding the net, we’re backing a similar outcome on Wednesday.
