MATCH PREVIEW: MK Dons vs. Oldham Athletic

29 January 2019

Oldham Athletic are back in league action as they take on MK Dons in the Sky Bet League Two fixture.

Latics travel to the Stadium MK on a run of three games without a win and caretaker manager Pete Wild is hoping to get back to winning ways tonight.

“Our record there is horrendous, and we've shipped a lot of goals down the years going down there.” He said.

“We've got to put it right, we've got to look to go get something out of the game which we will be going to do.

“Ultimately if we've got any aspirations of staying in the top half of the table, we've got to come away there with something.”

Wild confirmed that there were no fresh injury concerns following the defeat to Doncaster Rovers.

Latics will be without the suspended Peter Clarke, but Mohamed Maouche is back in contention after serving his one-match ban at the weekend.

Young defender Jamie Stott also returns to the fold after his recent loan spell with Stockport County.

Our hosts will be without the injured George Williams who has been struggling with a hamstring problem.

Jordan Moore-Taylor is a doubt for the hosts after limping off at the weekend, but they could call upon Callum Brittain following illness.

The last time the sides met was the opening game of the season at Boundary Park which MK Dons ran out 1-2 winners.

Latics have a rather poor record when travelling to MK Dons with just one win in 11 visits.

That win came in February 2006 with a goal from Luke Beckett securing a 0-1 win for Oldham.

Oldham Athletic are 14/5 to beat MK Dons tonight.

MATCH REPORT: Two Penalties Condemn Latics To A Defeat

29 January 2019

Two penalties from Chuks Aneke and Kieran Agard condemned Latics to a third straight defeat at the Stadium MK.

Tom Hamer pulled one back for Latics with a superb volley, but it wasn’t enough to spark a comeback for Oldham.

MK Dons started the game sharper than Latics, but it seemed their route to goal would come from a set piece as Joe Walsh twice headed wide from a corner.

Another corner for the home side fell to Ryan Harley on the edge of the box, but he curled his effort over the bar.

However, the home side took the lead as Dean Lewington went down under a challenge from Christopher Missilou with referee Antony Coggins pointing to the penalty spot.

Aneke stepped up and sent Daniel Iversen the wrong way to give his side the lead.

In fairness the goal seemed to be the spark Latics needed as Missilou’s effort made goalkeeper Lee Nicholls almost spill the ball into the path of Callum Lang.

Latics created a couple of half chances as Lang saw a shot in front of goal before Urko Vera hit an acrobatic effort wide.

Baily Cargill forced Iversen into a decent save before Lang hit an effort just wide for Latics.

Vera had a good chance from a corner which was flicked into his path by Tom Hamer, but MK Dons got bodies in the way of the Spanish striker’s shot.

Missilou hit a volley straight down the throat of Nicholls, before Watson tested Iversen after a neat move down the right as the home side went in one up at half time.

Vera almost had Latics level at the start of the second half as Gevaro Nepomuceno’s cross was pulled back by Lang, but Nicholls saved from Vera from around three yards out.

Mohamed Sylla then had a shot deflected inches wide as Oldham were starting to get on top in the contest.

However, substitute Jose Baxter brought down Alec Gilbey in the penalty area and the home side were awarded another penalty.

Agard stepped up this time and placed it straight down the middle to doubles the hosts lead.

However, almost immediately Latics pulled one back as the ball fell to Hamer on the edge of the box and his left-foot volley flew into the top corner.

MK Dons were sitting back and hitting Latics on the counter attack as Pete Wild’s men struggled to create chances for an equaliser.

Baxter did hit a freekick just over the bar, but that’s as good as it got for Latics as they fell to yet another defeat at the Stadium MK.
