Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Tranmere will be aiming to keep their playoffs hopes alive when they face Oldham in the League Two Round 45. The Super Whites suffered a heart-breaking 2-0 loss to Stevenage at the weekend, with the team dropping to 10th place in the standings. Tranmere are four points behind the playoffs berth, meaning that this has to go down as a must-win game for the home side.
Fit-again midfielder Jay Spearing is widely expected to replace Josh Hawkes in the starting XI, while there are no fresh injury worries in the home team. The Latics, on the other hand, are on a four-game losing run in the League Two. Since Oldham failed to secure the survival, anything but a routine home win would be a major surprise. Both Vaughan and Hopcutt are pushing for a start for the visitors as John Sheridan should opt to make changes to the team that suffered a 2-1 loss to Salford.

Liam Feeney is an English footballer who plays for Tranmere Rovers as a midfielder. Born in Hammersmith, England on January 21, 1987, Feeney started his senior career at Hayes, and after scoring eight goals in 46 appearances for the club, he moved to Salisbury City in 2007.
The experienced footballer for several other English clubs as well, and, no doubt, Blackburn Rovers, Bournemouth, and Bolton Wanderers are the most notable ones. Nowadays Liam Feeney plays for Tranmere Rovers in the League two on loan from Blackpool. His main position is right wing, but he is capable of producing fine displays as a left winger as well.
Feeney made his League Two debut with Tranmere in a 3-0 loss to Cheltenham Town on September 19, 2020. His preferred foot is right, and he has a contract with the Whites until May 2021. The experienced winger has a dual citizenship (England/Jamaica).
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.
