Preston North End v Oldham Athletic Preview, League 1, Monday September 9th 2013.

Preston North End head into this game unbeaten so far in early stages of this new season, but have only managed to secure one victory along with drawing the remaining four games and if manager Simon Grayson’s side are to be contenders for promotion then they simply must start winning more games.

Oldham Athletic head into the game having secured two wins from their opening five matches, but have lost the other three with their latest coming last weekend at home against Tranmere Rovers 0-1. However, manager Lee Johnson will have been happy with his sides performance in the League Cup midweek where they were convincing 1-4 winners away against Shrewsbury Town and another performance like that could see them pick up more points on Monday night.

Preston North End v Oldham Athletic Team News

Preston North End Team News:

No fresh injuries or suspensions for the hosts so expect manager Simon Grayson to play a full strength side which should include the likes of Kevin Davies and Tom Clarke who were new signings to the club during the summer transfer window. Joel Byrom and Chris Humphrey are the clubs current top goal scorers and will be looking to add more to their tally come Monday night in front of their own fans.

Oldham Athletic Team News:

The visitors also have a full squad to choose their starting eleven from with no reported injuries or suspensions, so manager Lee Johnson could stick with the majority of the same side that were convincing 1-4 winners midweek in the League Cup. Adam Rooney and Daniel Philliskirk are the clubs current top goal scorers with two each and will also be looking to add to their tally on Monday night.

Oldham Athletic have won two of their last five games but have also lost the other three which provides Preston North End with a slight advantage on the recent form stats as although the hosts have only won one of their last five, they have also only lost one of these and drawing the rest.

Preston North End v Oldham Match Betting Odds Market.

Preston North End are the clear favourites to win this game at a current best price of 19/20 with Bet365 (£200 Free Bets for New Customers) which looks about right considering they have home advantage and are unbeaten in the league this season.

The Draw is certainly a strong possibility considering Preston North End’s form this season and at a current best price of 5/2 with Sky Bet (£10 Free Bets No Deposit Required for New Customers) I can certainly see quite a few punters choosing this game as part of their draw accumulator’s.

Oldham Athletic are coming into this game on the back of a very good 1-4 victory midweek in the League Cup so confidence will no doubt be high and at a current best price of 10/3 with Betfred (£10 Free Bets No Deposit Required for New Customers) they do look pretty decent value.

Preston North End v Oldham Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Preston North End for me have the far stronger squad available, but there does seem to be a big problem with scoring goals and until this is addressed I can continue to see Simon Grayson’s side struggling to win games.

However, they do remain unbeaten so far this season in the league and with home advantage they are going to be a very difficult side for Oldham Athletic to beat and the draw could be a sensible play here at generous odds.

The goal stats suggest the game to see one or two goals to be scored on Monday night, so the goals market’s could also offer some additional value here, but I am going to take a risk of Oldham Athletic getting at least something from the game after their excellent midweek performance in the league cup.
