Oldham vs Macclesfield Prediction
The hosts failed to break out of their dismal winless run the other week and succumbed to what was their sixth defeat of the campaign, that too by a whopping 6-1 scoreline against Mansfield.
Dino Maamria men now have just one win to boast of from their last eight matchups in all competitions. The squad have been faring no better at home either, and have garnered no more than six points from a possible eighteen.
On the other hand, Macclesfield on a three-match unbeaten streak in the league at the moment and will be making the trip to Boundary Park on the back of a 2-1 win over Port Vale. Furthermore, the away side have admitted defeat just twice in their last five outings, both of which, to their defense, was against sides that are currently above them in the ladder.
Taking into account that three out of the last four head to head meetings have also seen the away side secure the bragging rights, Macclesfield are the favorites to come out on top in this one.
However, the hosts have been resilient on home soil so far, and have avoided defeat by holding their foes to a draw, at the least, in half of their last six games here. Given that the away side salvaged no more than a point in their previous outing as well, the safest punt would have to be a double chance.
Furthermore, both teams have been racking up the goal scoring charts in their previous head to head fixtures. With their last two meetings here also featuring over 2.5 goals, on the finals scoreboards, it is certainly safe to expect nothing short of a high scoring affair this weekend.
