Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Boundary Park will host Saturday’s football game between Oldham Athletic and Morecambe, the two sides who sit in the opposite halves of the table. Oldham will be without Italian defender Andrea Badan, who suffered an injury in a 3-3 draw with Colchester, but the hosts are still seen as slim favourites to win the match. A man to watch in the home team will be Conor McAleny, who has been scoring goals for fun of late.
Morecambe, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Southend and Port Vale. The Shrimps are eager to overtake Newport in top position, and, taking everything into account, a real football festival is on the horizon. You should bear in mind that both teams managed to find the net in each of their previous three meetings in League Two. A player to keep an eye on in the away team will be talented midfielder Adam Phillips, who has been making progress week by week.
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.
Highlighted Team (Morecambe):
Based in Lancashire, England, Morecambe are a professional club that compete in the League 2. The Shrimps were founded in 1920, and they welcome their home rivals at Globe Arena. The venue, which was opened in August, 2010, can hold up to 6,476 people.
Morecambe wear red shirts and red shorts when playing in front of home fans, while yellow is the dominant colour of their away kit. Fellow Lancashire-based club Accrington Stanley are seen as the club’s fiercest rivals. The Shrimps have rivalries with the likes of Lancaster City, Fleetwood Town, Barrow, Kendal Town, and Southport as well.
In 1974 Morecambe won the FA Trophy as they defeated Dartford 2-1 in the title game, and 14 years later they lifted the Conference League Cup trophy. The Shrimps secured promotion into the Football League with a 2-1 win over Exeter City in the 2007 play-offs final.
