Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Following a 1-1 draw with Bristol Rovers, Salford City will be aiming to return to winning ways in the League Two when they host Oldham to their Peninsula Stadium on Matchday 19. The Lions made a slow start to the season, but their recent displays are giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of upcoming fixtures. However, home win should not be considered as both Ashley Hunter and Matty Willock are sidelined through suspension.
The Latics, on the other hand, aim to escape the danger zone in the League Two standings. Oldham Athletic suffered three defeats in the previous four league fixtures, but they should take advantage of the absentees in the home team. In their last meeting in the League Two Oldham defeated Salford 2-1, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself.

Born in Trowbridge, England, on October 30, 1994, Jordan Turnbull is a professional footballer who plays for Northampton Town as a defender. Turnbull is a product of Swindon Town football academy, but in 2007 he was spotted by Southampton scouts.

Speaking of his international career, the Northampton centre-back has two caps with the England U19 team, and one cap with the England U20. Jordan Turnbull, who is used as a left-back as well, wears the number 6 jersey at Northampton Town. His preferred foot is left.
Highlighted Team (Oldham):
Based in Oldham, Greater Manchester, Oldham Athletic are a professional football club that compete in League Two. The Latics play their home matches at Boundary Park, the venue with the capacity of 13,512 spectators. Oldham Athletic are well known for their blue and white home kit, with the owl being the symbol of the club.
The Latics did remarkably well to make it to the League Cup final in 1990, but Nottingham Forest proved to be a big catch for Joe Royle’s troops in the title game. Oldham made it to the FA Cup semis on three occasions (1912/13, 1989/90, 1993/94), and in 1979 they advanced to the Anglo-Scottish Cup final. The Latics registered their biggest league triumph on December 26, 1962, with the team crushing Southport 11-0 in Division 4.
Speaking of the club’s heaviest defeat, Oldham Athletic were hammered by Tranmere Rovers 14-3 at Prenton Park on December 26, 1935. Bolton, Stockport, and Blackburn are the club’s traditional rivals, but nowadays, Huddersfield Town are seen as the Latics’ fiercest rivals.
