Fulham vs Oldham Athletic tips Miguel TH
Fulham are in the Premier League relegation zone and four points from safety. This FA Cup third round tie at home to League Two Oldham Athletic gives them a welcome break from their relegation battle and a win could give them some confidence. They have only lost one of their last four games but only won one of the last eight. Their two recent wins over Southampton and Huddersfield Town have both come at home and that's going to be key in this cup tie as they have only lost one of their last five home games. Last season they lost in the third round losing at home to Southampton. Oldham Athletic are tenth in League Two and only four points adrift of the play-off places. That's a big improvement as they were as low as 17th at one point earlier in the season. They have won four of their last seven league games but are still prone to a bad performance as seen when losing 6-0 away at Carlisle United. Oldham have had to beat non-league Hampton & Richmond and Maidstone United to reach the third round. Before those two away wins, they'd gone five away FA Cup ties without a win. Fulham are struggling in the Premier League but are three leagues above their opponents and can get a home win here.
Fulham vs Oldham Athletic tips Ashton Lowbridge
Fulham have mixed form recently, with some clear improvement and better results recently, but still suffering the occasional poorer loss, with Fulham currently 19th in the Premiership table, while Oldham Athletic have rather mixed hit and miss form recently, with a mix of better wins somewhat offset by some poorer losses, with Oldham currently 10th in the League Two table. Fulham will have home advantage for this FA Cup match, and Fulham do have the better ability being three divisions higher, and while I think Oldham if they give this match a real go could make it a close match potentially, I think still Fulham with home advantage and better ability, that Fulham with a reasonable effort should get a home win most likely overall in this FA Cup match.
