Oldham to Win
After a limp start to the season, Oldham have sparked into action in recent weeks and their midweek EFL Trophy win over Salford was their third victory on the spin in all competitions. Barrow meanwhile, are in the midst of a five-match winless streak and the Latics will feel like they are meeting them at an opportune time on Saturday. Fresh from their win at Boundary Park on Tuesday, we’re backing Oldham to record another at Barrow’s expense.
Under 2.5 Goals
Both Oldham and Barrow have been grinding through the gears in the final third so far this season and with chance-finishing standards low on both sides, we’re tipping under 2.5 goals to be scored at Boundary Park. The Latics have notched just four times in five League Two games so far this term, while Barrow are averaging just 1.0 goals per 90 minutes in the division since the summer. With those uninspiring records considered, we’re anticipating a low-scoring skirmish in Greater Manchester.
Home Team Highest Scoring Half: Second
Oldham have only hit the net four times in League Two this season and remarkably, all four of their efforts were registered after the half time break. Keith Curle’s charges are routinely slow starters, though their first-half profligacy opens up an opportunity in the home team highest-scoring half market on Saturday.
Oldham vs Barrow: Match Preview
Oldham are among the bookmakers’ favourites for the drop this season and the Latics’ early performances had all the hallmarks of a team bound for relegation. However, their displays have picked up of late and their last gasp victory at Sutton in their last League Two fixture had a visible impact on their confidence – as evidenced by their follow up cup victory over bid-spending Salford.
Barrow narrowly avoided demotion to the Nation League last season though The Bluebirds look like flying into some dangerous winds again this term if their early results are an indicator. Mark Cooper’s side were beaten in each of their first two away matches of the new campaign, though their unbeaten start at home is a sliver of positivity worth clinging to.
