Oldham Athletic form and stats

Oldham Athletic's results here at Boundary Park in the League Two have been very modest with 4 victories, 1 draw and 9 defeats. Two home wins in a row for Oldham bring valid hopes of a third.

Oldham Athletic drew their last game, 2-2 away at Tranmere Rovers (placed 6th). Heartbreak before that as Oldham Athletic lost 3-4 at Forest Green Rovers's place.

This is expected to be a close game, with Oldham Athletic perhaps considered small favourites due to their home advantage. Looking back at earlier matches similar to this one (expected to be close with Oldham Athletic as a small favourite), we find 18 games. Oldham has won six of these, drawn five and lost seven.

There will be little rest for Oldham Athletic after this match as they are travelling to Carlisle United for a League Two game in only four days.

The Oldham fans have had their share of opportunities to cheer home goals this season, having seen 21 goals in 14 league matches. With more than 1,5 conceded goals on average, the Oldham defense is not exactly impregnable. 26 goals conceded from 14 games. You can find more goal stats on the Statistics tab above.

Barrow form and stats

There's been little loot from Barrow's travels as they have only collected 7 points from 13 away games in the League Two. Barrow, who have the fewest points (7) away in League Two, only have 2 wins to counter their 10 defeats and 1 draw. It's looking increasingly bleak for Barrow who now has to deal with a four game losing streak. Scunthorpe United was the last time a defeat was avoided. The pressure to perform on the road is increasing on M. Jolley, the Barrow manager, as the last three away games were defeats.

Home advantage was not enough for Barrow in their previous game, as they lost their League Two-match, hosting Morecambe, 1-2. Prior to that match, the Barrow manager M. Jolley faced defeat when travelling to Salford City and losing 0-1.

As mentioned above, this is an open game with no clear favourite. We have found 17 similar matches played by Barrow in our archives, and the results are: nine wins for Barrow, three draws and five defeats.

The schedule is very tough for Barrow now as they have to travel again shortly after this match. A League Two game at Bolton Wanderers is waiting in only four days.

Many goals are not expected from the visiting Barrow as they have only managed to score 12 times from 13 away games in the league. It's been trouble in front of goal recently, as only 1 of these goals has been scored in their last three away matches. As opposed to that, Barrow have seen the ball go into their own net 19 times on the road.

Head 2 Head

Oldham and Barrow have met before this season: Barrow - Oldham Athletic 3-4.
