Oldham to Win

Both Oldham and Salford have started the campaign on a poor note. While the Athletic are struggling in relegation slots, Salford are close by with a two-point safety. All that comes to nought in the EFL Trophy. The hosts are unbeaten in EFL Cup this campaign while City has been knocked out. History is also in favour of Oldham, who claimed a 2-1 victory on Salford's last trip to Boundary Park.

Total Goals: Over 2.5

Despite not claiming the results they would have hoped for, goals have flown in Oldham and Salford's recent fixtures. Four of their combined six competitive fixtures have concluded in an Over 2.5 goals scoreline and we expect the trend to follow in this meeting. Our pick is backed with their recent results as Salford sent three past Newport and Oldham claimed two at Sutton's expense.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

With the exception of their EFL Cup tie with Accrington where Oldham kept a clean sheet, the Owls have conceded in each of their remaining six competitive outings. They have hit the back of the net in each of their last three fixtures, a trait not shared by Salford but has scored the same amount of goals. With three goals sent past Joe Day this Saturday, Gary Bowyer will fancy his charges in getting on the scoreboard.

Oldham vs Salford: Team News and Match Preview

Oldham Athletic

Keith Curle saw Oldham Athletic evade relegation last season and the task will be the same in the current financial conditions. Their form in EFL Cup is finally witnessed in the league with their win over Sutton on the road, the Owls have ended their seven-match losing streak in League Two. If they are to improve their outlook, the forwards need to start doing their bit as the scoring burden has been solely shouldered by Congolese midfielder, Dylan Bahamboula.

Salford City

Gary Bowyer will be pleased with his charges as the Ammies ended their five-match winless streak with a 3-0 thrashing of Newport. Salford City cannot rely on their laurels as they were lucky to come unscathed from the fixture after accruing the same number of shots on goal. With Oldham claiming bragging rights over them in their last League Two meeting, the EFL Trophy meeting allows them to exact their revenge.
