Our prediction for this League 2 match:
After recording three consecutive wins in the League Two, Swindon Town suffered a shocking 2-0 loss to Forest Green Rovers at the weekend. As a result, the Robins dropped to the second position in the standings, but a win over Oldham Athletic could seem them regain the first place in the League Two table. Swindon Town are enjoying a very successful season, and we do not believe that they are going to spoil the entire campaign in the upcoming fixtures.
The Latics experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-0 loss at Crawley Town, and given the fact that key defender David Wheater misses the Swindon Town game through injury, we are tempted to put our money on the promotion-chasing side. You should know that the Robins are eyeing their ninth away win of the season.
This game is postponed.
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 (Swindon):
Founded by Reverend William Pitt of Liddington in 1879, Swindon Town are an English football club which compete in the League Two. The Robins welcome their rivals at County Ground, the stadium which can hold up to 15,728 spectators (all-seated), with the team wearing red shirts and white shorts when playing at home.
Gray is the dominant colour of the club which turned professional in 1894. Oxford United are considered the team’s main rivals, but the Robins have rivalries with Bristol City, Bristol Rovers, and Reading as well. In 1969 Swindon Town did remarkably well to win the English League Cup, with the team beating Arsenal 3-1 in the title game at Wembley Stadium.
John Trollope is the club’s player with most appearances as he played 889 first-team games from 1960 to 1980. Premier League attacker Charlie Austin is one of the most notable footballers who played for Swindon Town in the past.
