Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Oldham Athletic will be aiming to make amends for a heavy 5-1 loss to Exeter City when they host Forest Green Rovers at their Boundary Park. The Latics continue with their habit of producing much better displays at home than on the travels, and you should know that they are eyeing their third consecutive win in front of home fans.
Oldham Athletic, though, will be without key defender David Wheater against the Green Army. Forest Green extended their winless run in the League Two to six games, with the team suffering a 3-2 loss to Port Vale on home soil on Tuesday evening. The visitors are eager to rejoin the race for a place in the play-offs, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in the Boundary Park clash. Given the attacking potential of the two sides, a lively contest is on the horizon.
Highlighted Player (Mohamed Maouche):
Born in Ambilly, France on January 10, 1993, Mohamed Maouche is a midfielder who plays for Oldham Athletic in the League Two. Maouche started his senior career at Saint-Etienne, but it has to be noted that he played for the club’s reserve team.

The footballer of Algerian descent scored his first goal in the English fourth tier in a 1-1 draw with Lincoln City on November 27, 2018.
Maouche has dual citizenship (France/Algeria) and his brother Yassin Mouche is also a professional football player. His primary position is central midfield, but he is used as both defensive midfielder and attacking midfielder as well. His preferred foot is right.
Highlighted Team (Forest Green):
