Competition: League Two
Market: Exeter City win
Odds: 4/5 @ 888sport
Two sides who really find themselves battling it out at opposite ends of the League Two table, Exeter will welcome Oldham to St. James’ Park on Saturday afternoon.
Starting with the hosts, managing to land a thumping EFL Trophy victory in midweek after a stellar first-half romp, Exeter find themselves enjoying what has been a remarkable run of form. Eventually claiming an action-packed 5-3 win against Bristol Rovers on home soil, the Whites are now sat just a single point adrift of finding a route into the automatic promotions spots. Last seen on League Two duties landing a 2-1 win away at Salford, Matt Taylor’s men have won each of their last three League Two contests on the spin. With leading marksman Matt Jay already racking up nine fourth-tier strikes since opening the 2021/22 campaign, Exeter are in fact unbeaten in each of their last 14 straight matchups across all formats, a run that stems back to August 24th. Likewise, it should also be noted that Saturday’s hosts are unbeaten in each of their last six home fixtures on the bounce.
As for the visitors, while Exeter might have managed to land an EFL Trophy victory in midweek, Oldham couldn’t find a similar boost. Eventually falling to a 3-2 defeat away at Tranmere Rovers, the Latics find themselves in the midst of a real struggle both on and off the pitch. Firmly looking over their shoulder and with many tipping them as a leading contender to lose their Football League status this season, Keith Curle’s side will know that face a stern test on Saturday afternoon. Last seen on League Two duties getting hit with a 3-1 defeat against Swindon on home soil, Oldham have managed to win just one of their previous nine contests across all formats. Given what has been a huge recent gulf in class, we’re backing a home victory at St. James’ Park this weekend.
Bet: Exeter City 4/5 to beat Oldham in Saturday’s League Two contest @ 888sport
