Competition: League Two
Market: Over 1.5 goals
Odds: 4/11 @ 888sport
Two sides who still find themselves battling it out at the foot of the League Two table, Oldham will host Colchester from behind closed doors on Friday night.
Starting with the hosts, managing to make a welcomed return to winning ways last time out, Oldham will be desperate to forge a route up the League Two table. In their 40 fourth-tier matchups so far this season, they have recorded 13 wins, nine draws and 18 defeats, scoring 59 and conceding 66 in return. Managing to muster themselves a points tally of 48 and opening this weekend’s fixtures sat down in 17th, it should be noted that Friday’s hosts hold the worst defensive tally in the division. As for their recent run of results, ending their back-to-back defeats and picking up a thumping 4-1 victory against Crawley last time out, that was only Oldham’s second win in their last 10 League Two contests. However, it is worth highlighting that The Blues have seen five of their last seven matchups finish with over 1.5 goals by the final whistle.
As for the visitors, still drastically struggling to pick up maximum points, Colchester find themselves firmly looking over their shoulder at the drop zone. In their 40 League Two matchups so far this season, they have recorded eight wins, 17 draws and 15 defeats, scoring 37 and conceding 54 in return. Along with opening this weekend’s fixtures sat down in 22nd and holding a five-point buffer from slipping into the relegation zone, it should be highlighted that The U’s hold the third-worst defensive record in England’s fourth-tier. As for their recent run of results, last seen playing out a 1-1 draw against Barrow on home soil, Colchester have failed to win any of their last nine League Two contests and have just a single win to their name since the start of December. In a battle between two sides who find themselves holding a woeful defensive return, we’re backing over 1.5 goals on Friday night.
