MATCH PREVIEW: Oldham Athletic VS Mk Dons

3 August 2018

Oldham Athletic kick off the 2018/2019 Sky Bet League Two campaign at home to MK Dons tomorrow (3pm).

Frankie Bunn’s side come into the game after a positive pre-season with a squad capable of challenging the division's very best.

He hopes the feel-good factor around the squad will have an impact on the pitch.

“There are smiles around the place again and everyone’s working hard towards our goal. So, things are looking good.” Bunn said.

Tomorrows opponents have also had a change in manager with Paul Tisdale the new voice on the touchline following their relegation from League One.

They have brought in several players including former Bournemouth defender Baily Cargill and Robbie Simpson, a face familiar to the Oldham fans.

Simpson was at Oldham between 2011-2013 and scored at Anfield in the FA Cup in 2012.

He was also part of the FA Cup run in 2013 when Latics reached the fifth round.

Oldham could potentially have several debutants on show tomorrow which includes Jose Baxter who has trained with the squad this week following an injury.

The only long-term absentee to the squad is Ousmane Fane with Bunn hoping to have a full complement for tomorrows fixture.

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

MATCH REPORT: Oldham Athletic vs MK Dons

Latics Fall To Opening Day Defeat

4 August 2018

Two first half goals from Kieran Agard and Ryan Harley were enough for the visitors despite Dan Gardner pulling one back for Latics.

The first half started at a slow pace with either side not wanting to give much away early on.

However, the visitors were awarded a penalty inside ten minutes when Giles Coke was adjudged to bring down his man from a corner and the referee had no hesitation when pointing to the spot.

Agard stepped up and place it low to Daniel Iverson's right to give Mk Dons the lead.

Oldham worked there first opportunity when some neat football allowed Gardner to test out Lee Nicholls with a driving shot.

However, up the other end Agard found himself free in the Latics' penalty area and he squared it across to Ryan Harley for a two-goal lead.

The home side worked themselves back into the game just before half time as Captain on the day Gardner dragged his team back into the contest.

The ball fell for the midfielder on the edge of the box and he had no hesitation in driving the ball past Nicholls in the visitors’ goal.

Iverson was called into action early into the second half from a flowing move from Mk Dons.

The big Dane came out quickly to deny Connor McGrandles with his feet.

Latics tried to force the equaliser with substitute Gevaro Nepomuceno cutting in from the right and dragging his shot wide.

Mk Dons were strong at the back denying any half chances Oldham could work and it was Iverson who had to make another stop to keep the home side in the game.

McGrandles again found himself free but the Leicester loanee was there to make another great save.

Sam Surridge almost nicked a point for Latics, but his deft header was held onto by Nicholls.

Due to an injury to McGrandles the game went over ten minutes past the 90-minute mark, but Oldham could not grab themselves a point.

Latics face a trip to Forest Green Rovers next Saturday.
