Oldham vs Morecambe
England – League Two
Date: Tuesday, 19th February 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Boundary Park (Oldham).
The legendary Paul Scholes has joined the dugout of Oldham, and it surely has buoyed the overall attitude of the team. Promotion to League One must be their ultimate objective, considering this newest recruitment. And, the reality is not unattainable. They stand just six points away from a playoff spot and takes on a side struggling to stay above the relegation line.
Only one team has scored fewer goals than the Shrimps this season, and expectedly opponents have taken advantage of this glaring weakness. The team has recorded just one win in their last matches away from home, and the solitary victory came against Port Vale, which possesses the weakest offense in the league.

Oldham vs Morecambe Prediction
The hosts have been particularly strong at the Boundary Park, with the team remaining unbeaten in nine of their last ten home-ties. Whereas, their opponents were winless in 16 of their last 20 matches on the road. Morecambe also lost their last h2h encounter, and then, the team had the home advantage going for them, too. This Tuesday, the squad is on the road and has the sword of relegation hanging above their head. A bet on the home team to win has good value.
Seven of the last ten fixtures at this venue saw the hosts scoring two or more goals. Meanwhile, the Shrimps conceded two or more goals in four of their seven ties. They also let past two goals in the last meeting with Oldham. Moreover, only two groups have conceded more goals than Morecambe, and they are right on the money to receive at least two from the hosts.
