Crewe vs Oldham
English League Two
Date: Saturday, 8 December 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Alexandra Stadium (Crewe).
Oldham took advantage of the easier second round draw in the FA Cup to storm past National League strugglers Maidstone United 0-2 seven days ago away at Gallagher Stadium. Peter Clarke broke the deadlock 17 minutes into the game, while Chris O’Grady confirmed the victory doubling the lead six minutes from time.
The Latics thus continued their spell of fine form making it six consecutive games without a defeat in all competitions. They are unbeaten in last four League Two affairs, but three of these ended in draws. Frank Bunn’s lads are still far away from the promotional challenge. Can they at least maintain the fine unbeaten run on Saturday afternoon against Crewe Alexandra?
Crewe vs Oldham: Head-to-head
Oldham Athletic have a positive head to head record with Crewe.
The Latics lead the head to head tie by six wins coming into the landmark 20th encounter with the Railwaymen.
Each of last four H2H games ended in the 1-0 scoreline (three wins for Oldham in the process).
Just one of past seven head to head outings saw three or more goals scored.
Crewe vs Oldham: Prediction
The Railwaymen sit 15th in the league ladder at the moment. They are just a single point short of 13th-placed Oldham and they have reasons to expect a result in spite of the fact the visitors are undefeated in last six in all competitions.
Crewe have a fine record at Alexandra Stadium where they won 6, drew 2 and lost 2 of 10 matches so far in the season. David Artell’s men are very tough to break down on the home pitch where they allowed only 7 goals in 10 games this season.
The hosts won two of last three matches in League Two netting five goals along the way. Based on everything written above, the draw looks to be the most logical of betting options and you can back it at the odds of 3.30.
