Macclesfield vs Oldham Prediction

The Macclesfield faithful were finally given a reason to cheer after their squad took down Cambridge United at home with a 1-0 scorecard last week. Impressively, it took the hosts just five minutes to break the deadlock in that latter matchup.

Be that as it may, the home side have a lot of ground to make up in the fourth division. With just twenty-three points in the bag, Macclesfield are currently just six points away from hitting rock bottom in the cluster.

On the other hand, Oldham were taken down by Cheltenham in their most recent clash, with the latter slotting three unanswered goals past them. The visitors are now on a dismal three-match losing run and have come away with the win just twice in their past eight games.

To make matters worse, Oldham have been alternating between wins and defeats in their last six outings in all competitions.

In sharp contrast, Macclesfield have not stumbled in their League Two fixtures at home since their 1-0 defeat to Morecambe, back in August.

Taking into account that the visitors have not secured the bragging rights in any of their previous visits here either, the tag of favorites most certainly goes to Macclesfield in this one.

However, hosts have shared the spoils six times at home this term, which is the joint-most by any side in the cluster. Hence, opt for a double chance, just to be on the safer side.

Furthermore, the Macclesfield backline have been tough to get past, especially at home. The fact that they have conceded just seven goals here certainly stands as a testament to it.

It is also worth mentioning all of the past four League Two games here have been low scoring affairs. As such, it is certainly safe to expect fewer than 2.5 goals on the final scorecards this weekend.
