Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Oldham Athletic and Salford City go head to head at Boundary Park on day 44 of the 2021/2022 League Two campaign. The Latics suffered a loss in each of their last three league fixtures, and, as a result, their League Two status is in great danger. Since 22th-place Stevenage have one game in hand, this has to go down as a must-win situation for John Sheridan’s troops.
Carl Piergianni is sidelined through suspension, but there are no fresh injury worries in the home team. The Lions, on the other hand, aim to move closer to the playoffs berth, and seeing that they will go for a win as well, both teams to score betting option should be considered. Both Matty Willock and Josh Morris continue to miss out with injuries, while Ashley Eastham is a major doubt speaking of the visiting team.
Highlighted Player (Jordan Clarke):
Jordan Clarke is a professional footballer who plays for League Two club Scunthorpe United. Born on November 19, 1991, Clarke is a product of the Coventry City football academy. He continued playing for the Sky Blues at senior level and after scoring 4 goals in 125 appearances for the club, he moved to Scunthorpe United in 2015.
It has to be noted that he had a short loan spell with Yeovil Town as well during the 2014/15 season. Jordan Clarke made his Scunthorpe debut in the League Two in a 2-0 loss to Swindon Town on August 3, 2019. Clarke’s main position is right-back, but he is used as both centre and left back as well.
Since he was a very talented player, Jordan Clarke earned call-ups for both England U19 and U20 teams. Speaking of his personal life, you should know that the Scunthorpe United defender attended Coundon Court School in Coundon, Coventry.
Highlighted Team (Salford):
Founded during the Second World War (1940) as Salford Central, the League Two side play their home games at Moor Lane. The stadium, which was opened in 1978 and renovated in 2019, can hold up to 5,108 spectators. The Lions wear red jerseys and white shorts when playing in front of home fans, while white and black are the dominant colours of their away kit.
Salford City secured promotion to the League 2 at the end of the 2018/19 as they defeated Flyde 3-0 in the National League play-offs final. The match was played at Wembley Stadium, with Touray, Pergianni, and Dieseruvwe scoring for the Lions.
In the 1977/78 season Salford City won their first Manchester Premier Cup trophy, with the team repeating the success the following year. Bury are seen as the club’s main rivals, but their rivalry with the likes of Oldham and Rochdale is pretty big as well.
