Our prediction for this League 2 match:
As expected, Oldham Atlethic were beaten by league leaders Swindon Town in their last league match, with the team remaining in the danger zone in the League Two standings. The Latics are four points clear of the relegation zone ahead of Saturday’s football match, meaning that they are eager to give fans some cheer. Oldham Athletic are eyeing their third home win of the season, and we predict that they are going to take advantage of the fact that Crawley Town have been struggling in front of goal of late.
The visitors failed to find the net in the previous three league fixtures, meaning that they are low on confidence ahead of Matchday 22. You should bear in mind that the Latics emerged triumphant in each of their previous two meetings with the Reds in the League Two.
