MATCH PREVIEW: Forest Green Rovers vs. Oldham Athletic

10 August 2018

Oldham Athletic face a trip to Forest Green Rovers in the Sky Bet League Two tomorrow afternoon (3:00pm kick off).

Latics come into the game off the back of a narrow defeat against one of the divisions favourites for promotion in MK Dons last weekend.

Frankie Bunn’s side still have doubts over the fitness levels of Jose Baxter and Peter Clarke.

Baxter played 45 minutes in a behind closed door friendly on Tuesday and Clarke only started training this week.

This means Latics could line up with the same young back line as they did on the opening day, but Bunn has faith that they can cope in the division.

“There's some good players there and they're still learning.” Bunn said.

“They are young and they'll keep making mistakes, but you've just got to hope they learn from those mistakes, but they've shown some good potential.”

Meanwhile the hosts this weekend have no fresh injury concerns and are coming into the clash off the back of an impressive 4-1 win away at Grimsby Town.

Striker Christian Doidge bagged a brace, so he could be the major goal threat to look out for.

Latics old boy Carl Winchester was also on the score sheet and an own goal rounded off the scoring.

Sky Bet have given Oldham Athletic odds of 9/5 for the win.

Sam Rosbottom and Roy Butterworth will be on commentary on iFollow Latics for supporters who cannot make the game.

Match report for Forest Green Rovers vs Oldham Athletic on 11 Aug 18

11 August 2018

Dan Gardner scored from the penalty spot to earn Oldham Athletic a point away at Forest Green Rovers after Reuben Reid had given the hosts the lead.

The contest started off at a slow pace with both teams trying to get a feel of the game with a mixture of fouls interrupting the flow of the game.

Latics had the games first real chance when they won a freekick on the edge of the box, but Gardner couldn’t hit the target.

Forest Green Rovers took their opening opportunity after a Sam Graham slip was capitalized upon by Reid and his low effort found the bottom corner of the Oldham goal.

Chances came few and far between, however old boy Carl Winchester found some space in and around the Oldham box.

He tried to find the top corner but curled his effort wide and the sides went in at half time with Forest Green one up.

Jose Baxter was introduced at half time and almost immediately got Latics back into the game as he found himself in space in the box, but his cross was saved well by Robert Sanchez.

Daniel Iversen was then called into action as he flew to his left to save brilliantly to deny Reece Brown.

Baxter curled an effort wide before Iversen was there again, this time to beat away Winchesters’ effort.

Iversen versus Winchester was becoming a theme in the game and the big Dane denied the former Oldham man once again superbly.

The ball was crossed low into Winchester but Iversen spread himself, much like another famous Danish goalkeeper, to keep Oldham in the game.

Latics were level ten minutes later as Baxter was brought down by Sanchez with Gardner stepping up and dispatching the penalty.

Forest Green did have the ball in the back of the net, but it was ruled out for offside as Latics managed to hold on for their first point of the season.
