Oldham – Grimsby Match Prediction | 15-09-2019 10:00

They did dispatch Walsall 3-1 at the Bank's Stadium thanks to a James Hanson brace before the last game. The referee will get the game underway at 3pm. On the 14th of September, Oldham and Grimsby will cross swords in the EFL League Two. Grimsby Town lost their lst match 2-0 at home against Crewe Alexandra. Grimsby will have their sights set on a place in the top three when they travel to Oldham at Boundary Park on Saturday afternoon. So 22nd in the league, Oldham is playing against 7th in the league- Grimsby Town. Grimsby with 3 wins and two draws find themselves in 7th.

Looking at these two, we feel that Grimsby Town and Oldham Athletic should both be able to find the back of the net here although its difficult to select a clear winner. With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a score draw when the referee blows the full-time whistle. Shouldnt be much in it, and a draw looks quite a realistic result.

Goalscorers

However, their attack did receive a boost last time out as they managed to find the back of the net twice against a Plymouth side who will be going for the title this season. However, while they havent been great at the back, its a lack of attacking strength that is really holding Oldham back. Laurent Banides men have scored just five goals in seven matches, four of which theyve drawn a blank in.

Its been a pleasing first few weeks of the campaign for the visitors, as they have won three, drawn two and lost twoof their seven League Two matches. While they havent been amazing at the back, conceding nine goals in seven matches, Michael Jolleys men have impressed in the final third, failing to score just twice and scoring a total of 13 goals. Grimsby will have their sights set on another three points when they make the relatively short trip to face off against Oldham on Saturday afternoon.

The fact that they have found the back of the net so frequently is certainly something to consider, and given that their hosts seemed to find their shooting boots last time out and have scored an impressive 21 times in their last six meetings with Grimsby, they should be confident in their ability to find the back of the net once again. The visitors may go into this match as the favourites, but their goal scoring exploits is what catches our eye.

Your View?

Oldham in their last game drew 2-2 with Ryan Lowes Plymouth Argyle as David Wheater got the late equalizer to peg Argyle back. Oldham lost 1-0 at home to Colchester before then which was their third defeat in the last six and fourth of the season. Athletic are 22nd in the table with just five points while the expected goals data feels they should be bottom.

Theyre not, but in terms of chances created and conceded, theyre currently the third best team in the division, which is a big positive. A quick glance at the league table tells us that Grimsby are useful, as they currently occupy a respectable 7th place, though its easy to feel that theyre good enough to go up a few places. Based on expected goals, which admittedly isnt everyones cup of tea, Grimsby should be sitting in a lofty 3rd position.

Oldham will have to watch inform forward James Hanson, who has bagged 5 goals and 3 assists for the Mariners so far this season. Its been a pleasing first few weeks of the campaign for Grimsby, whove won three, drawn two and lost just two of their seven League Two matches. While theyve not been amazing at the back, conceding nine goals in just seven matches, Michael Jolleys men have impressed in the final third, failing to score just twice, scoring a total of 13 goals.

After failing to challenge for the top six seriously enough last term, Oldham wouldve been looking for improvement this time around, though they havent made a very good start to the new campaign. However, this weekend they have the opportunity to prove that they belong in the promotion hunt as they face off against a side who have come quickly out of the blocks, Grimsby Town.

It also put to an end a five-game traveling record of failing to find the back of the net. The hosts are short favourites to win the match and it is hard to argue with that given the respective starts these two have both made. Away from Boundary Park, the Latics started with defeats to Forest Green and Bradford but last time on the road defeated Cambridge 2-1. They have not been too impressive at home either.
