Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Oldham Athletic play host to Stevenage at their Boundary Park on day 39 of the current League Two campaign. The Latics aim to make amends for a 2-1 loss to Leyton Orient, but it seems as if they head into the season finale with the lack of motivation. Oldham are stuck in the middle of the table, and we do not believe that they are capable of matching the in-form Boro.
Stevenage proved their worth in back-to-back wins over Carlisle United and Barrow, and we predict that they will give fans yet another reason for celebration on Friday evening. In the first half of the season Stevenage rolled over Oldham 3-0, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the away team. The attacking partnership of List and Norris has been in a perfect working order of late, and we predict that the duo will pose a big threat to the opposition defenders.
Highlighted Player (Conor McAleny):
Conor McAleny is a product of Everton youth academy, joining the club from Merseyside in 2003 at the age of 11. Despite the fact that his main position is centre-forward, McAleny is used as both second striker and left winger as well. McAleny did spend his youth career at Goodison Park, but it has to be noted that he made no more than two appearances for the Toffees at senior level.
The English attacker, who was born in Whiston on August 12, 1992, made his first-team debut in a 1-0 Premier League loss to Arsenal on December, 2011. Conor McAleny played for the likes of Scunthorpe United, Brentford, Cardiff City, Charlton Athletic, Wigan Athletic and Oxford United before signing a deal with Fleetwood Town.
The right-footed striker spent the second half of the 2018/2019 season on loan at Kilmarnock, scoring 3 goals in 11 appearances for the club in the Scottish Premier League.
Highlighted Team (Stevenage):
Based in Hertfordshire, England, Stevenage Borough are a professional club that compete in the League Two. The Boro are well known for their red and white home hit, while dark blue is the dominant colour of their away kit. Stevenage play their home games at Broadhall Way, the stadium which can hold up to 6,722 spectators and they were founded in 1976.
The Boro have won FA Trophy on two occasions (2006/07, 2008/09), with the team clinching the Herts Senior Cup title in the 2008/09 season thanks to a 2-1 win over Cheshunt. Luton are considered one of the club’s biggest rivals and there have always been fireworks in matches between the two sides.
In 2015 fighting broke out between rival fans near to the end of the clash at the Lamex. It has to be noted that Stevenage Borough were founded in 1976 after the bankruptcy of Stevenage Athletic.
