MATCH PREVIEW: Oldham Athletic vs. Stevenage

1 March 2019

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

Latics come into the game after back-to-back defeats, but manager Paul Scholes believes his team will show a reaction against Stevenage.

““It's been a good week the players have worked really hard and we'll see how well it's gone on Saturday.” He said.

“We've done our homework like always, we try not to over analyse and concentrate on other teams too much because it is about us.

“They're a good team and they've had some decent results over the past few games.

“They're very direct and it'll be something that we'll have to handle, but like I said I like to concentrate on us.

“We've got players here capable of giving good performances and that's what we're looking for.”

Tom Hamer has been back in training this week, but Scholes said he will be assessed ahead of the game.

Dan Gardner and Ousmane Fane are still long-term absentees.

Stevenage are currently three games without a win coming into Saturday’s game.

They sit just six points off the playoffs and two above Latics in a game that both teams could do with winning.

In the reverse fixture, Stevenage ran out 3-2 winners, despite Ishmael Miller and Callum Lang twice giving Latics the lead.

Last time the sides met at Boundary Park was back in January 2014 where Latics ran out 1-0 winners thanks to a goal from James Wesolowski.

Oldham Athletic are priced at 4/6 to beat Stevenage tomorrow.

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

MATCH REPORT: Latics Stung By Another Late Goal

2 March 2019

A stoppage time equaliser from Kurtis Guthrie prevented Oldham Athletic taking all three points after Jose Baxter had given Latics the lead.

Latics started the game quite brightly as Zak Dearnley linked up well with Callum Lang before seeing his shot blocked on the edge of the box.

Dearnley then played a superb ball out wide to Gevaro Nepomuceno before demanding the ball back, but on this occasion, he couldn’t keep his effort down.

Nepomuceno had an effort himself saved well by Paul Farman after being picked out by Jose Baxter.

Luke Wilkinson headed a good chance over for the visitors before Daniel Iversen produced another great save that we’ve all been accustomed to.

Ilias Chair lined up a freekick on the edge of the Latics box and aimed for the top corner, but Iversen got across well to push away effort.

Lang headed wide from a Nepomuceno cross before Stevenage started to impose themselves in the game.

Latics were having to stand firm, but they did have Iversen to thank once again after a terrific save.

Alex Revell was allowed to bring the ball down and get a strike away, but Iversen flung himself through the air to tip the effort onto the crossbar as the teams went in level at half time.

Latics took the lead instantly in the second half as Baxter turned and fired in a low driven shot into the bottom corner leaving Farman with no chance.

Somehow Latics didn’t manage to double their lead as Baxter saw a couple of efforts blocked before Nepomuceno whipped in a terrific ball, but Lang somehow couldn’t convert inside the six-yard box.

Dearnley dragged a shot wide before playing a beautiful ball through to Nepomuceno a few minutes later.

Nepomuceno squared up his man before curling an effort which Farman had to pick out of the top corner.

Oladapo Afolayan had an effort deflected wide before a Mohamed Maouche corner beat everything and everyone from a Latics corner.

Then came the moment Latics didn’t want to happen as Guthrie equalised.

Chair’s corner was headed home by the striker as Latics conceded a goal in stoppage time for the fourth game in a row.

It could have been even worse for Latics as Chair smashed the crossbar with a freekick with just seconds to go.
