Oldham Athletic host Scunthorpe United tomorrow afternoon in David Dunn’s first game in charge as permanent manager of the club. 

Dunn was handed the reigns after four consecutive draws, with performances vastly improved.

Last weekend’s trip to Gillingham ended 3-3 with Latics showing great character, falling behind twice before leading 3-2.

Unfortunately Athletic could not hold on to victory but it did extend Dunn’s unbeaten run in charge of the club to four games.

Scunthorpe United have had a shakey start to the season, losing six of their opening 11 games.

The Iron got back to winning ways last weekend with victory over Fleetwood, ending a three game losing streak. 

Robins, who is in his first full season in charge of the club, has added to his squad over the summer, bringing in Preston pair Jack King and Scott Laird and former Leicester City striker Tom Hopper.

Scunthorpe currently sit 20th in Sky Bet League One, picking up 11 points from their 11 games this season.

Victory for Latics would take them three points ahead of the visitors and push them up into mid table.

Dunn will be without three of his loan men through international duty. Jay Fulton will represent Scotland under 21s, Cameron Dummigan will represent Northern Ireland under 21s whilst Simonas Stankevicius will represent Lithuania under 21s.

That will force Dunn into one change and he could bring either Lee Croft or Carl Winchester into the side to replace Fulton.

Joseph Mills, Jonathan Forte and Jake Cassidy remain the only long-term absentees.

Scunthorpe United could welcome back Luke Williams back into the fold after turning out for he development squad in midweek.

Murray Wallace is a doubt for the game but Niall Canavan, Stephen Dawson and Jamie Ness will definitely miss the game with injury. 

Speaking about the clash, Dunn said: “It will be a great feeling if we can pick the three points up but likewise I’m really positive about the future that we have. 

“I’m really looking forward to it and one thing is for sure, I am a big believer in you get out what you put in. 

"If we carry on what we are doing and show the same work ethic that we have in the last few weeks then we will be fine.

“It’s important we get that win sooner rather than later and I do believe that once we get that win then we might get that little bit of a run.”
