Recent respective form guides
Oldham Athletic's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While Latics have scored 4, a worringly large 9 have been leaked at the other end.
Crewe Alex.'s away form is none too clever either, unbeaten in their last six, consisting of three wins and three draws. The games have constituted a decent return of 9 goals for the The Railwaymen, and 8 goals against.
Oldham Ath.'s 60 points from 42 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 9th position. Crewe Alex. are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 45 points from 42 matches.
