MATCH PREVIEW: Oldham Athletic vs. Morecambe

19 February 2019

Oldham Athletic are back under the lights at Boundary Park as they take on Morecambe in the Sky Bet League Two fixture tonight (7:45pm).

It will be the third home game on the bounce for Latics with Paul Scholes wary of the threat Morecambe will bring tonight.

"They're very similar to both teams we've played, I think they'll be direct, they'll play if they're allowed to play as well.” He said.

“We know that and obviously have a couple of big threats in [Richard] Bennett the centre-forward who's a good player and [Kevin] Ellison's experience who's scored some really good goals.”

Scholes confirmed that both Tom Hamer and Callum Lang will be doubts for tonight’s game to add onto long term injury absentees Dan Gardner and Ousmane Fane.

A win for Latics tonight could potentially take them within three points of the playoff positions.

Our opponents Morecambe currently sit three points above the relegation places, but they come into today’s game full of confidence after grinding a 0-1 win at Port Vale on Saturday.

The Shrimps will be without A-Jay Leitch-Smith and Vadaine Oliver who are long-term injuries.

In the reverse fixture Latics ran out 0-2 winners at the Globe Arena thanks to goals from Chris O’Grady and Gevaro Nepomuceno.

The two teams have never met at Boundary Park in the league.

Oldham Athletic are priced at 8/11 to beat Morecambe.

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

Oldham Athletic supporters in the UK will be able to watch this evening’s match live for £10 via iFollow Latics.

MATCH REPORT: Latics Suffer Defeat At Home To Morecambe

19 February 2019

A last-minute winner from Aaron Collins condemned Paul Scholes to his first defeat as Oldham Athletic manager.

Jordan Cranston had given the Shrimps the lead early on as Jose Baxter found an equaliser, but it wouldn’t be enough for Latics as they suffered defeat.

The visitors took the lead within five minutes as Latics failed to clear the initial danger and Zak Mills crossed into Cranston who swept home the opening goal.

Paul Scholes’ men were finding it hard to get a foothold in the game as Cranston had a freekick pushed away by Daniel Iversen.

Iversen had to be at his best minutes later as Piero Mingoia found Carlos Mendes-Gomes whose effort was pushed away by the Dane.

Latics eventually created an opening as Gevaro Nepomuceno put a beautiful cross into Chris O’Grady, but he could only miscue the header wide.

O’Grady then nodded one down to Jose Baxter who would be denied by a fantastic save from Mark Halstead in the Morecambe goal.

Centre backs Peter Clarke and George Edmundson both forced Halstead into saves before goalscorer Cranston wasted a golden opportunity up the other end for Morecambe.

O’Grady forced Halstead into another smart stop early in the second half as Latics looked to pile on the pressure for the equaliser.

In truth the home side didn’t created much until 15 minutes left on the clock when Baxter found the net.

He was picked out well by Johan Branger-Engone from the left-hand side and Baxter rose highest to head home.

Mingoia forced a stunning save from Iversen before substitute Urko Vera was denied by a fingertip save from Halstead.

However, Morecambe would steal the three points right as the game hit 90 minutes when Liam Mandeville turned well in the box before laying it on a plate for Collins to tap home.

Latics must pick themselves up as they face a tough trip to Bury on Saturday.
