Recent respective form guides

Oldham Athletic's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Latics have scored 4, a worringly large 7 have been leaked at the other end.

Brentford's away form is none too clever either, picking up two good wins, but losing three, from the last six. Only 4 goals have been registered in this time, with 5 leaked at the wrong end.

Oldham Ath. are stuck down in the relegation zone of Coca-Cola League One with a return of just 26 points from their 25 games thus far. Brentford's 34 points from 27 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 10th position.
