Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Boundary Park will host Tuesday’s relegation six-pointer between Oldham Athletic and Mansfield Town, the two teams who are fighting hard to secure the League Two survival. Oldham Athletic aim to put an end to their seven-game winless run in the league, but beating Mansfield, who crushed promotion-chasing Bradford City 3-0 at the weekend is easier said than done.
The Yellows regained a much-needed confidence, with top scorer Nicky Maynard netting his 12th goal of the season. Mansfield Town are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against Oldham Athletic, and we are positive that they will find the net in the Boundary Park showdown. Since the Latics are eager to grab something from the match as well, both teams to score bet should be considered. In their last meeting in Oldham the Latics defeated the Yellows 3-2.
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.
After playing for the likes of Servette, Lausanne-Sport, and Tours, the French footballer joined the Latics in September, 2017. Mohamed Maouche made his League Two debut with Oldham Athletic on August 4, 2018, in a 2-1 loss to Milton Keynes Dons. 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.
