MATCH PREVIEW: Oldham Athletic vs. Notts County

31 December 2018

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

Caretaker manager Pete Wild oversaw an impressive 1-4 victory away at Port Vale last time out with Latics looking to close the gap on the playoff places.

Wild says that the team cannot take their opponents for granted despite their league position.

“I've watched Notts County all weekend and my thoughts are is that their lucks starting to improve and they're going to be on the turn pretty quickly.” He said.

“They've got some really good players and Neal (Ardley) seems to be getting the best out of them now and they could have easily won Saturday.

“You can't underestimate them, yes, they're bottom of the league, but in my eyes, they won't be there for long.

“We've got to make sure come tomorrow 5pm they're still bottom of the league and we can't afford to take them lightly.”

Wild said after Saturday that some players were looking tired so there could be a potential to alter a few things in his team selection.

He is also hoping to have a couple of names back on the bench, although he wouldn’t specify who.

Notts County currently sit bottom on the table on goal difference after a rather disappointing season where they were tipped as one of the promotion favourites.

The Magpies are on their third manager of the season with Neal Ardley currently taking the reigns following the departures of both Kevin Nolan and Harry Kewell.

They picked up a point at home to Bury on Saturday in a 0-0 draw, but Jon Stead missed a penalty and the opportunity to take all three.

In the reverse fixture at Meadow Lane the sides played out a 0-0 draw with Notts County goalkeeper Ross Fitzsimons in fine form to keep Latics out.

Notts County will be without Dan Jones who was injured in the warm up prior to the Bury game.

Jamie Turley failed a fitness test prior to the Bury game so he is most likely a doubt.

Former Latics man Lewis Alessandra and Enzio Boldewijn are long-term injuries, so they will be missing from the Notts County squad for defiant.

Last time the sides met at Boundary Park was back in January 2015 where Latics ran out 3-0 winners thanks to goals from George Elokobi, Amari Morgan-Smith and Jonathan Forte.

Oldham Athletic are priced at 4/6 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 Start 2019 With A Win Over Notts County

1 January 2019

Oldham Athletic ran out 2-0 winners over Notts County as goals from Tom Hamer and Peter Clarke secured the three points.

Notts County substitute Christian Oxlade-Chamberlain saw red for two yellow card offences on a relatively comfortable afternoon for Latics.

It was a tentative start to the game as the visitors created the first opportunity of the game when the ball broke to Cedric Evina, but he fired over the bar.

Pierce Bird saw a header cleared off the line by Gevaro Nepomuceno before Callum Lang tested Ross Fitzsimons with an effort from a tight angle.

Latics were beginning to grow into the game as they kept possession well in front of a stern Notts County defence.

Oldham did have the best chance of the half as Jordan Lyden crossed from the left into the oncoming Mohamed Maouche, but the midfielder could only guide the ball wide of the post.

Latics felt they should have had a penalty after Hamer’s long throw seemed to be handled by Richard Duffy inside the penalty area.

However, five minutes later Latics took the lead after a patient build up saw George Edmundson picked out Hamer out on the right-hand side.

The young fullback whipped in a cross come shot which flew past Fitzsimons into the top corner to give the home side the lead.

Whether Hamer meant it or not was up for debate, but Latics went in at half time with a deserved lead.

Latics doubled the lead early into the second half as Johan Branger-Engone delivered a freekick for Captain Peter Clarke to bundle home.

Hamer then crossed for Maouche, but he could only direct the header straight at Fitzsimons, before Maouche himself carved open an opportunity for himself, but once again he could only hit the shot straight at the Notts County goalkeeper.

Clarke diverted a Jon Stead cross onto his own post before Oxlade-Chamberlain saw red for two challenges in five minutes.

Branger-Engone hit a dipping effort which Fitzsimons had to turn behind before being replaced by Harry Robinson for his senior debut.

The win for Latics means back-to-back victories for the club and caretaker manager Pete Wild.

Next up for Latics is the small task of playing Premier League side Fulham in the third round of the Emirates FA Cup.
