It's game two of the League Two season and everything to play for. Read our full preview of Stevenage-Oldham Athletic!

The home team returns to The Lamex Stadium after being equal after 90 minutes with Barrow (placed 10th) on their last time out; the League Two game ended 1-1. In the match before that, Stevenage hosted Portsmouth (after extra-time, 1-3 on penalties) and drew the Carabao Cup game 3-3.

Inih Effiong was able to secure the draw 1-1 in the game against Barrow after coming on as a substitute and scoring the final goal. In the starting lineup today?

The bookmakers consider this a fairly even contest. One could say only the home advantage separates the teams. It could be relevant to look at how Stevenage have performed in matches similar to this (as small favourites).
