Aron Wright - March 31, 2018

Oldham Athletic vs Blackpool
England – League One
Date: Monday, 2 April 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Boundary Park (Oldham).

Oldham Athletic are going to take on Blackpool in the 41st round of English League One. Home side wants to escape from the danger zone, while the visitors are looking to secure their safe mid-table position.

The hosts haven’t been playing very well lately since they’ve been defeated two times in a row. In the last five matches they were able to celebrate a win only once and this bad run pushed them below the red line. They are two points away from the nearest safe place and although Craig Davies and the lads have been pretty productive in front of the oppositions’ goal, their defensive record is the second worst in the league. Oldham Athletic have been putting average home performances where they’ve booked seven wins and suffered eight defeats. The hosts need to improve urgently if they want to remain in the third tier of the English league pyramid.

Blackpool haven’t celebrated in the last three occasions, but they are still on the safe 16th place being seven points ahead of their rivals. Gary Bowyer’s side just wants to stay away from the trouble and find the mid-table spot so they can prepare for the next campaign in which they would aim for a better result. They haven’t been too bad when playing at away pitches and they managed to come back home with a win from five outings. They should keep their focus on high level in order not to slip down in the danger zone.

Oldham Athletic vs Blackpool: Head-to-head

Blackpool have been more successful lately and they managed to book both home and away victories over these rivals. Their latest clashes haven’t been much efficient.

Oldham Athletic vs Blackpool: Prediction

If the visitors remain undefeated in this one, they’re going to secure the survival and keep the safe distance from the endangered teams. They should be able to get away with a draw.

Since the hosts have been involved in high scoring matches this season, in this one we might be able to see both teams scoring at least once.
