Oldham vs Rochdale Betting Tip and Prediction. In the 24th round in League One Oldham host Rochdale.
Oldham have 7 points more than the first team in the relegation and 7 points less than the first team in play-off zone and they still have some chances to reach the play-off. I don’t believe that they could relegate – they are definitely better than teams who fight to stay in league.
Their recent form is not at the high level. In the last 8 matches they lost 6 times and managed to win only two games (both wins were away). For this match home team have many problems with absences, especially in defence.
The first goalkeeper Jake Kean (11/0 gk), second goalkeeper Joel Coleman (2/0 gk) and Dominic Poleon (27/1 f) are all doubtful, while George Elokobi (23/3 d), Joseph Mills (27/0 d), James Wilson (34/1 d), Jacob Mellis (6/0 m), Liam Kelly (31/1 m), Conor Wilkinson (8/2 f) and Amari Morgan-Smith (12/2 f) are all out.
Rochdale have improved their performance – in the last 5 matches they have managed to win 4 times and now the play-off zone looks reachable. The visitors play better away from home, but their recent performance on away ground is not impressive.
Rochdale will be without Matty Lund (13/2 m) and Calvin Andrew (25/4 f) for this game.
Because of poor form of home side and their problems with injuries, I’ll give an advantage to Rochdale, but I’ll cover this betting prediction with an Asian handicap (+0) – in the case of draw, money back!
