MATCH PREVIEW: Bury vs. Oldham Athletic

22 February 2019

Oldham Athletic make the short trip to local rivals Bury tomorrow in the Sky Bet League Two fixture as Paul Scholes faces his first away game in charge of Latics.

Scholes will be looking for his side to bounce back from the past two games, but he knows it’ll be a tough task against the Shakers.

“It's just about recovering from that, we've conceded a couple of late goals in the past two games which were disappointing.” He said.

“It could have been different, but it wasn't and now we've got a tough game Saturday to move on from the defeat.

“Bury are a tough team, they're probably one of the best in the league and our concentration has to be there otherwise we won't get anything out of the game.”

Latics may be without Tom Hamer and Callum Lang who are still both doubts whilst Dan Gardner and Ousmane Fane are still long-term injuries.

Scholes also confirmed that Oladapo Afolayan will be in the squad, but Alex Iacovitti is still a few weeks away from being involved.

Our opponents for Saturday currently sit second in the table, two points behind the league leaders Lincoln City.

They have scored the most goals in the league this season which shows their threat in front of goal.

Scott Wharton came off at half-time at the weekend with a groin strain, so he could be a doubt for tomorrow’s game.

In the reverse fixture, Latics ran out 4-2 winners with Chris O’Grady bagging himself a hat-trick and Sam Surridge grabbing the other goal.

Latics last won at Gigg Lane in August 2016 in a 0-1 victory thanks to a goal from Leon Barnett own goal.

With Oldham priced at 3/1 to beat Bury tomorrow.

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

MATCH REPORT: Bury Come From Behind To Beat Latics

23 February 2019

Bury came from behind to beat Oldham Athletic at Gigg Lane after Callum Lang had given Latics a 0-1 half time lead.

A Nicky Maynard brace and a goal from Jay O’Shea condemned Oldham to back-to-back defeats.

Bury had the first chance of the game as Nicky Maynard was allowed to turn on the edge of the box before firing in a shot that Daniel Iversen had to push away.

However, minutes later Latics took the lead through a beautiful move.

Rob Hunt played a lovely ball down the channel to Jose Baxter who pulled it across for Lang to tap home despite being under pressure from a Bury defender.

Both sides of the Gigg Lane were filled with Latics fans bouncing up and down when the ball hit the back of the net, but the home side could have been level minutes later.

Byron Moore squared it to Nicky Adams who could only blaze his effort over inside the penalty area.

Callum McFadzean probably should have put Bury level, but his effort at the back post was cleared off the line by Captain Peter Clarke cleared it off the line before Maynard blazed over the rebound.

Iversen had to push away an Adams freekick before Latics eventually composed themselves after a bit of an onslaught.

Zak Dearnley had a dangerous cross turned over his own bar by Adam Thompson before Will Aimson fluffed a volley inside the Oldham penalty area up the other end.

Baxter was instrumental in most of Latics’ play in the first half and after a neat flowing move, he saw a shot deflected over as Oldham went in one up at half time.

Paul Scholes’ men could have doubled the lead on the counter, but Baxter couldn’t quite keep his curling effort down.

Adam Thompson dragged an effort wide as Latics were actually holding off the Bury pressure well.

However, with just over 70 minutes on the clock, McFadzean got down the left-hand side and crossed the ball into a melee of bodies with Maynard getting the final touch.

The Shakers took the lead as Adams this time was allowed too much space down the right and he pulled it back to O’Shea who diverted the ball in.

Hunt had an effort sail over the bar before Maynard sealed the game in poor fashion as far as Latics would be concerned.

Oldham won the ball back, but hesitation in the six-yard box allowed the Bury striker to nip in and tap home to secure the win for Bury.

Next up for Latics is a home clash with Stevenage next Saturday at Boundary Park.
