Oldham and Ipswich couldn’t settle this FA Cup encounter at the first time of asking, so they head to Boundary Park on Tuesday to meet again.

It was a 1-1 draw that the two played out at Portman Road, which League Two’s Oldham will have been happier with.

Can they pull off the big “Cupset” by eliminating their League One opponents on home turf?

Oldham Preview – Can the Latics pull out the win?

League Two side Oldham had to fight back after conceding an early goal at Portman Road against Ipswich in the first attempt.

They do go into the FA Cup First Round replay as the underdogs of course, given that they are facing a team from a tier above them.

The win for Oldham in the match outright for FA Cup betting is at 17/4* (odds recorded 1856 GMT 15th November 2021).

There has not been a lot of home joy for Oldham this season and they have lost four of their last six league fixtures there (W1 D1).

The Latics have conceded at least two goals in three of their last four home fixtures.

The FA Cup has to be a nice distraction for Oldham, but they are sitting second from bottom in League Two.

So their bigger concerns will be trying to preserve their league status, having won only 3 of 16 league fixtures this season.

Our betting prediction:
Ipswich to win & BTTS

* (odds recorded 1856 GMT 15th November 2021)


It’s worth looking at their league form, because it just makes their draw at Ipswich that much more credible.

That meeting on November 6th was the first time that the clubs had met since way back in 1997.

So there’s no current head to head to dip into.

Given that Oldham are back on home turf, Both Teams To Score is at a quote of 4/5* (odds recorded 1856 GMT 15th November 2021).

Does a victory look likely to come Oldham’s way?

Not really as they have taken only one in their last eight matches, home and away combined in all competitions.


Ipswich Preview – Tractor Boys to finish the job

After opening the scoring within 10 minutes of this FA Cup tie, Ipswich will probably be annoyed at having to go through this extra fixture.

The Tractor Boys have been in decent shape in League One this season.

Ipswich are currently a top ten side in the division but have won only 6 of 17 league games (D6 L5).

But they look hard to beat at the moment.

Ipswich have suffered one defeat in their last eight matches in all competitions, winning half of those.

In the match outright for FA Cup betting, Ipswich are 8/13 odds-on favourites* (odds recorded 1856 GMT 15th November 2021).

On the weekend they played out a 0-0 draw in League One at home against Oxford.

That is only the second game this season that they have failed to hit the back of the net in (all competitions not including Football League Trophy).

Ipswich have gotten on the scoresheet in all away fixtures this season.

In two of their last four away games, they have netted exactly four goals.

Ipswich, therefore, do carry a genuine threat here and should be the ones getting through the tie.

As they haven’t been particularly proficient at the back, however, the Ipswich To Win & Both Teams To Score option gets on the radar at 5/2* (odds recorded 1856 GMT 15th November 2021).

The winner of this replay will play host to Barrow in the FA Cup second round.

Of the two, Ipswich do look the more likely.


Oldham vs Ipswich Betting Advice

The away win is under firm consideration for this fixture for a couple of reasons. First, Ipswich are the higher-tiered team.

The second is that the Tractor Boys have done well in front of goal on their travels this season.

They haven’t been greatest at the back and that was a missed opportunity on home turf at the first time of asking against Oldham, but the Ipswich to win & BTTS option at 5/2 is a decent proposition* (odds recorded 1856 GMT 15th November 2021).


Key Facts – Oldham vs Ipswich Betting Tip

  • Oldham have won one of their last eight fixtures in all competitions
  • Oldham have conceded at least two goal in three of their last four home games
  • Ipswich have scored in all away fixtures in all competitions this season


There just hasn’t been the big form from Oldham this season to really suggest that they can pull this off.

Their league survival is of greater importance than this at the end of the day and this extra match is a nuisance.

The Ipswich to win by a 1 goal margin is in play as well for 13/5* (odds recorded 1856 GMT 15th November 2021).
