MATCH PREVIEW: Oldham Athletic vs. Cheltenham Town

23 October 2018

Oldham Athletic are once again in action at Boundary Park tonight as they take on Cheltenham Town in the Sky Bet League Two fixture (7:45pm Kick Off).

Frankie Bunn’s side will be looking to bounce back from the disappointing defeat to Port Vale on Saturday.

Bunn believes his players will show their true character as they look to turn the home form around.

“Every game is a test of character and you could say our away form is outstanding, so we've just got to get a win at Boundary Park as quickly as possible.” He said.

“You want to get that last one behind you, you're only as good as your last game and Tuesday will be that, we'll be well prepared for it and we're looking forward to it.”

Bunn also gave an update on the injury front with striker Sam Surridge expected to be missing for a few weeks with a hamstring injury.

Zeus De La Paz is also a long-term injury problem after he picked up a hamstring injury in training whilst Andy Taylor and Giles Coke are also out.

Ishmael Miller could be back in contention tonight after sitting out Saturday’s game with Port Vale.

The visitors come into tonight’s game off the back of a 1-1 draw away at Forest Green Rovers on Saturday.

Michael Duff’s team sit in 22nd place with 10 points from 13 games, but eight of those points have come from their away fixtures.

Cheltenham will be without midfielder Kevin Dawson, who was substituted after just 21 minutes on Saturday with a medial ligament injury.

Striker Tyrone Barnett’s who scored at Forest Green is a doubt with a dead leg.

Sean Long and Aden Baldwin remain the other absentees for Cheltenham, although Tom Field could be back in contention.

The two teams haven’t faced each other since March 2009 which ended in a 1-1 draw thanks to a late Danny Whitaker equaliser.

Latics last beat Cheltenham at Boundary back in August 2008 with a convincing 4-0 win after a hat-trick from Lee Hughes and a Whitaker strike.

Oldham Athletic are priced at 10/11 to beat Cheltenham Town.

Pay on the day is available for Latics supporters with the matchday prices.

Legendary commentator John Helm will be alongside Mike Leyland and Roy Butterworth 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 Get Back To Winning Ways Against Cheltenham Town

23 October 2018

Two late goals from Jonathan Benteke and Callum Lang secured the three points for Latics as Cheltenham Town striker Sam Jones saw red for a headbutt.

Latics started the game brightly with Jose Baxter dragging a shot wide only a couple of minutes into the game after some neat control and play from Dan Gardner.

Chris O’Grady then found Baxter running into the box, but Cheltenham Captain Johnny Mullins provided a vital interception to deny the Oldham man.

The visitors grew into the game and created their first chance as William Boyle headed wide from a Chris Hussey freekick.

The game seemed to be fizzling out as the half came to a close, but Latics stepped up a gear searching for the opening goal.

Tom Hamer produced a delightful cross field pass for Gevaro Nepomuceno who sat his man down before being denied by a good save from Scott Flinders in the Cheltenham goal.

From the resulting corner George Edmundson probably should have scored with a header, but he put it just wide of the post.

As the game entered stoppage time Jones produced a late challenge on Christopher Missilou with referee Ben Toner ready to give the Cheltenham striker a yellow card.

However, Jones and Baxter got into a heated exchange with The Robins man going for a headbutt in for Baxter giving referee Toner no choice but to brandish the red card and send Jones for an early shower.

Frankie Bunn introduced Ishmael Miller in the second half and he almost made an instant impact cutting in from the right-hand side, but he shot was blocked.

Nepomuceno tried his luck as he cut inside onto his left foot, but Flinders pushed the effort out for a corner with a decent save.

Latics finally took the lead through substitute Benteke as Rob Hunt crossed from down the left into the Oldham striker who was sliding in to open the scoring.

The home side never looked in trouble once they took the lead and Miller almost grabbed a second, but he could only fire his shot over from a corner.

Latics did have their second goal as the game was coming to an end when Lang picked up the ball on the edge of the box, took on three Cheltenham players a lovely bit of skill, before drilling the ball into the bottom corner.

Latics will be hoping to build on tonight’s victory when they travel to Northampton Town on Saturday afternoon.
