Wrexham vs Oldham Athletic betting tips: FA Cup First Round preview, predictions and odds

Match preview

How far will Wrexham go in this season’s FA Cup?

Of course, there has been extra spotlight on the Welsh club ever since they were bought by Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney in November 2020.

In the first full-season under the new owners, the Town lost in the FA Trophy Final and were beaten by Grimsby in the National League play-offs.

This means the Red Dragons are enduring a 15th successive season out of the EFL

In this competition, Wrexham’s finest hour came in 1992, knocking out Division One champions Arsenal.

This season, they needed a replay to see off Blyth Spartans in qualifying, and are targeting a place in round two for the first time since 2018.

In complete contrast, Oldham Athletic are very much enduring a downward trajectory.

The Latics’ 115-year stay in the Football League came to an end in May when they were relegated from League Two.

Things haven’t particularly improved for David Unsworth’s team, as they currently sit 19th in the fifth-tier.

In the fourth qualifying round, Oldham needed a replay penalty shootout to see off Chester, so still haven’t won away all season.

Thus, a home victory seems very likely at the Racecourse Ground.
