Liverpool: Lawro Predicts Oldham Result

Liverpool: Lawro Predicts Oldham Result

What scoreline has former Reds defender Mark Lawrenson plumped for in the latest edition of his prediction feature?...

Ex-Liverpool centre-back turned media pundit Mark Lawrenson has expressed his thoughts ahead of his old sides visit to Oldham Athletic in the FA Cup.

Writing in his regular 'Lawro Predicts' column for the BBC, the 55-year-old revealed he expects Liverpool to progress from Sunday's fourth round encounter.

Here's what he had to say in full...

"Oldham have not really caught fire in League One this season, getting some decent results but lacking consistency.

"I see a lot of football in that division when I go to watch Preston and the key can be how you work the loan market.

"Latics boss Paul Dickov is definitely going down that route but the thing that can hold you back is how much wages you can pay.

"Still, this is a great fixture for them and they are pulling out all the stops to make sure it does not get called off because of the snow.

"The Latics will run Liverpool a lot closer than they did in the third round at Anfield last season, when they lost 5-1.

"I cannot see Luis Suarez starting for the Reds but I also cannot see Oldham causing Brendan Rodgers' team too many problems."

Lawro's prediction: 0-2

About this former LFC player
Mark Lawrenson joined Liverpool from Brighton & Hove Albion for a then club record £900k in the summer of 1981. The Republic of Ireland international centre-back soon struck up a formidable partnership with Alan Hansen after injury to club stalwart Phil Thompson. After 332 appearances, Lawrenson left the club in 1989 and after a season playing in the American Soccer League went on to manage Oxford United and Peterborough United. During his time at Anfield 'Lawro' won 5 league titles, 3 League Cups, a European Cup and an FA Cup.
