MATCH PREVIEW: Oldham Athletic vs. Morecambe

1 February 2019

Oldham Athletic are back at Boundary Park tomorrow when they take on Morecambe in the Sky Bet League Two fixture.

Latics are currently on a run of four games without a game going into Saturday and Pete Wild is hoping to put things right.

“Everyone's desperate to do well, everybody doesn't come into this ground whether you're a fan, a player, or a coach, nobody comes into this ground to lose.” He said.

“What we've got to do now is reflect, we've been in this position before and we've fought our way out of this position before, so we can do it again and it starts Saturday.”

Latics made three signings this past week with Alex Iacovitti, Oladapo Afolayan and Zak Dearnley all in line to make their debuts.

Latics will also have Captain Peter Clarke back from suspension, but Wild may have a selection headache with Jamie Stott impressing on Tuesday night.

As for our opponents, they find themselves locked in another relegation battle as they teeter in 22nd place.

Morecambe have boosted their ranks on deadline day with the signing of Sam Dalby on loan from Leeds United to replace Vadaine Oliver who is out injured.

James Sinclair and Andrew Fleming are also missing through injury.

In the reverse fixture at the Globe Arena, Latics picked up a 0-2 victory thanks to goals from Chris O’Grady and Gevaro Nepomuceno.

The sides have only met once at Boundary Park which was in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy in 2008.

Morecambe ran out 5-4 winners on penalties on that occasion after a 1-1 draw.

Oldham Athletic are priced at 4/5 to beat Notts County.

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

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.
