Team News: Oldham Athletic
The Oldham Athletic boss Micky Mellon will be grateful to have no fitness concerns at all before this clash thanks to a completely injury-free squad to choose from.
Team News: Ebbsfleet United
Owing to an otherwise full-strength group of players, there’s just the sole fitness worry for the Ebbsfleet United manager Dennis Kutrieb to be concerned about. Jack Wakely (Ligament injury) misses out for this game. The players ineligible for this match because of suspension are Billy Clifford and Ousseynou Cissé.
In our view, Ebbsfleet United must be fancied to get a goal against this Oldham Athletic lineup, but it probably won’t be enough to avoid defeat.
We can see a very close game with a 2-1 winning margin for Oldham Athletic when all is said and done. Let’s just see how this one goes.
