Unlike last week, this is not actually the worst fixture in the world for Oldham. To what extent does that matter? Well, despite putting up a good performance (first time all season with the largest share of possession), Oldham lost yet again at home to Colchester.
The head to head at Plymouth for Oldham isn’t bad in recent times (where recent goes back as far as Oldham’s last promotion-winning season in 1991 – to the Premier League!) isn’t bad – three wins, two draws and the only defeat a thumping 4-1 two years ago.
But let’s face it. Although Plymouth may be a touch disappointed to be in sixth, they are in a much better place than Oldham. RED and the bookies agree that there’s more than a 50% chance of a home win tomorrow.
