MATCH PREVIEW: Oldham Athletic vs. Bury

14 December 2018

Oldham Athletic are back at Boundary Park tomorrow as they take on local rivals Bury in the Sky Bet League Two fixture (3pm).

Frankie Bunn’s men are currently five games unbeaten in the league and they’ll be looking to bounce back from the defeat to Rochdale in the Checkatrade Trophy on Tuesday night.

Bunn is expecting a tough test this weekend, but one he believes his side is more than a match for.

“It'll be a great game, Bury are a really good outfit with a strong players and some good players.” He said.

“They're flying high at the minute, so it'll be a tough test for us, we're probably going in as underdogs but it's a game we're relishing.

“They'll come and have a go and they're full of confidence as we are, so I'm hoping it'll be a good battle.”

Bunn confirmed in his pre-match press conference that Cameron Dummigan will be missing after he came off injured against Rochdale.

Jonathan Benteke, Jose Baxter, Ousmane Fane and Zeus De La Paz are still also missing due to injury and Ishmael Miller is suspended.

Bunn did say he hopes to have a couple of players back for Saturday’s game, although he wouldn’t specify who in his pre-match interview.

Our opponents this Saturday come into the game also on a five-game unbeaten run in the league.

Over the past week Bury have had a takeover go through and they are currently the top scorers in Sky Bet League Two.

The sides last met in May, playing out a 2-2 draw at Gigg Lane as Latics came from two goals down to earn a point.

In the reverse fixture at Boundary Park, Latics ran out 2-1 winners with Eoin Doyle and a last-minute Aaron Amadi-Holloway goal enough to give Oldham the three points.

Oldham Athletic are priced at 19/10 to beat Bury tomorrow.

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

MATCH REPORT: O'Grady Bags A Hat-trick As Latics Claim Derby Day Spoils

15 December 2018

A Chris O’Grady hat-trick and a Sam Surridge header were enough to see Oldham Athletic to claim the three points and the derby day bragging rights over local rivals Bury.

Coalan Lavery did make things interesting at the start of the second half with a quickfire double, but Latics saw out the game to make it six unbeaten in the league.

Latics started the game brightly as Rob Hunt saw his cross deflected to his own goal by Eoghan O’Connell, but Joe Murphy gathered the loose ball.

It would be a sign of things to come as Oldham took the lead through another cross into the box.

Callum Lang played it down the right channel for Surridge who crossed it into the path of O’Grady who produced a lovely left-footed volley past Murphy.

Minutes later it was two as Gevaro Nepomuceno floated a cross up the back post with Surridge waiting to head back across goal and into the net.

Daniel Iversen had to be on his toes as Jay O’Shea hit a decent freekick which would have nestled in the corner, but the Danish goalkeeper got across well to push it away.

The Shakers were starting to come back into the contest with periods of possession, but Latics created yet another chance as Nepomuceno played it to Mohamed Maouche from a freekick and the midfielder saw his shot blocked just in front of the goal line.

However, Latics grabbed their third as Nepomuceno played O’Grady clean through on goal and calmly slotted it into the net which summed up a fantastic first-half performance from Frankie Bunn’s men.

The Shakers made changes at half-time and substitute Lavery pulled a goal back instantly with his first touch after being picked out by Nicky Adams.

Bury then had a second ten minutes later as Adams again picked out Lavery to head home and give Latics quite the scare.

However, normal service was resumed as O’Grady beat goalkeeper Murphy in the air and the ball trickled over the line for his hat-trick and what turned out to be the goal to seal the three points for Frankie Bunn.

Bury tried to get themselves in with a shout of getting something from the game, but Dominic Telford’s freekick into the side netting was their only chance they really created in the final twenty minutes.

Tom Hamer did produce a superb block in the six-yard box from Telford, but in truth it was what Latics deserved over the 90 minutes.

Bunn’s men will be back at Boundary Park next Saturday when Exeter City visit.
