Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Oldham Athletic and Bradford City go head to head at Boundary Park in what is expected to be a close match. Oldham made a slow start to the season, but they have been playing some great football of late. The Latics aim to build on a 2-1 win over Cambridge United, and they are surely capable of beating the out-of-form Bantams at home ground. Bradford City are having a season for forget, with the team sitting in the relegation zone ahead of Matchday 17.
The Bantams are on a four-game losing run in the League Two, and given their shaky defence, we believe that punters from all four corners of the world can find value in betting on the hosts. When the two teams met in the FA Cup earlier in November Oldham recorded a 2-1 win over Bradford City, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself.
Highlighted Player (Conor McAleny):
Conor McAleny is a product of Everton youth academy, joining the club from Merseyside in 2003 at the age of 11. Despite the fact that his main position is centre-forward, McAleny is used as both second striker and left winger as well. McAleny did spend his youth career at Goodison Park, but it has to be noted that he made no more than two appearances for the Toffees at senior level.
The English attacker, who was born in Whiston on August 12, 1992, made his first-team debut in a 1-0 Premier League loss to Arsenal on December, 2011. Conor McAleny played for the likes of Scunthorpe United, Brentford, Cardiff City, Charlton Athletic, Wigan Athletic and Oxford United before signing a deal with Fleetwood Town.
The right-footed striker spent the second half of the 2018/2019 season on loan at Kilmarnock, scoring 3 goals in 11 appearances for the club in the Scottish Premier League.
