Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Following a 3-1 loss to Sutton, Oldham will look to record their first league win since February 19 when they take on Mansfield Town on Saturday. The Latics are eager to put an end to their five-game losing run, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at the Yellows. Both Vaughan and Tope are pushing for a start, while there are no fresh injury worries in the home team.
Mansfield Town, on the other hand, aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Rochdale. The Yellows are sitting just above the playoffs berth, and we predict that they will take advantage of Oldham’s poor form. Josh Andrews remains in the recovery room, while both Paul Downing and Max Taylor are rated doubtful for the match. In the first half of the season the two sides played out a goalless draw.
