Oldham vs Accrington
England – EFL Trophy
Date: Tuesday, 8 October 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Boundary Park (Oldham).
As Fleetwood and the U21 side of Liverpool are placed at the bottom of the group – owing to the two posting just two and one points on the board respectively from their two fixtures so far, the winner between Oldham and Accrington will automatically gain qualification to the next round.
In that sense, the game is a virtual final, and we can count on an intense encounter this Tuesday.

Oldham vs Accrington Prediction
Right away, despite the home advantage, the hosts are on the backfoot, due to them being a part of League Two, while their counterparts ply their trade a league above. On top of that, they messed up their home tie the last day against Cheltenham.
The hosts did have a one-goal lead going into the latter stages of the tie but conceded in the 71st minute to let go of that advantage.
Their opposite number meanwhile recorded a win on the road the last time they took a hike and kept a clean sheet as well.
Moreover, it’s been more than a decade since Dino Maamria’s men last won against this opponent, and as such, the guests stand more chance to register three points this Tuesday.
Coming to goals though, the home advantage should play a role. Also will the fact that every single tie between these two has had the BTTS clause satisfied. Finally, the crucial nature of the game should lead to both finding the back of the net at least once.
