MATCH PREVIEW: Oldham Athletic vs. Port Vale

19 October 2018

Oldham Athletic return to Boundary Park after the International break as they take on Port Vale in the Sky Bet League Two fixture (Kick off 3pm).

Frankie Bunn’s men come into the game off the back of an impressive 1-4 win away at Bradford City in the Checkatrade Trophy.

Despite that win, Bunn knows that his team must turn around the home form if Latics are to be challenging up at the top of the table.

“I thought it was a very good performance at Bradford, scoring four games away from home is something we want to try and replicate here.” He said.

“There's been a lot of goals scored at Boundary Park but unfortunately we've conceded a few, it's something we're looking to build on and improve upon.

“I’ve said it before, we're not the finished article yet, but we try to move forward and be positive in everything we do.”

Latics have no new fresh injury concerns other than Ousmane Fane who is still recovering from his problem he picked up in pre-season.

The visitors come into the game off the back of a 2-6 home defeat to league leaders Lincoln City last Saturday.

Neil Aspin’s men currently sit in 16th place in the table, three points behind Oldham, but they have also lost their last three league fixtures along with a win in the Checkatrade Trophy over Middlesbrough U21s.

The Valiants could be without Captain and star striker Tom Pope who missed the defeat to Lincoln with an ankle injury.

They will also be without the injured Scott Quigley and the suspended Ricky Miller.

However, young defender James Gibbons played 45 minutes in their Checkatrade Trophy match win over Middlesbrough U21s after his recent injury problems.

The last five meetings between the sides have finished in a draw with the latest coming in August 2017 in the Football League Trophy which finished 0-0.

Our last win against Port Vale came in 2015 after a Mike Jones goal secured a 0-1 win for Latics.

The last victory at Boundary Park came back in 2013 as Oldham ran out 3-1 winners thanks to an Adam Rooney double and a James Dayton strike.

Oldham Athletic are priced at 19/20 to claim the three points against Port Vale.

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

MATCH REPORT: Latics Fall To Narrow Defeat At Home To Port Vale

20 October 2018

A Tom Pope penalty was enough to see Oldham Athletic fall to a narrow 0-1 defeat at home to Port Vale, after Peter Clarke was adjudged to have fouled Luke Hannant.

Latics almost made the perfect start as Rob Hunt got down the left-hand side and put in a dangerous cross which was just inches away from Callum Lang sliding in.

The visitors themselves had an opportunity to score as a Leon Legge long throw wasn’t dealt with by Oldham and Nathan Smith forced Daniel Iversen into a fine save after the Danish goalkeeper tipped the effort onto the crossbar.

Lang then cut inside from the left and unleashed an effort towards goal which just went over the bar, before Tom Conlon curled a freekick wide for Port Vale.

Moments later Dan Gardner almost set Boundary Park alight after the ball sat up nicely for a sweetly struck volley from around 30 yards out, but Scott Brown was able to push the venomous effort away.

Port Vale took the lead from a dubious penalty decision as Clarke seemed to step across Hannant to shield the box out of play and referee Peter Wright pointed to the spot to the amazement of the Latics faithful.

Pope stepped up and converted the penalty into the bottom left-hand corner, giving Iversen no chance.

Gardner fired another shot wide until a controversial moment occurred as the game approached half time.

Jose Baxter sent Lang through on goal and he was taken out by Mitchell Clark inside the penalty area, but referee Wright waved away the claims with the incident showing similarities of the penalty he gave to Port Vale.

Latics were almost level minutes into the second half as substitute Gevaro Nepomuceno put in a corner which was diverted onto his own crossbar by Connell Rawlinson.

Latics kept the ball alive and Gardner drove an effort just over the bar.

The visitors were putting in an organised defensive performance as Latics were having to efforts from distance and Baxter sliced one of them efforts wide of the goal.

Nepomuceno got down the left-hand side and crossed into Clarke, who had found himself in the box, but the Oldham Captain put his left footed shot just wide.

Latics had another penalty shout as a Baxter freekick came in, Theo Vassell seemed to have his hands all over George Edmundson, but again referee Wright waved the claims away.

Frankie Bunn’s side couldn’t force an equaliser as they will look to bounce back at home to Cheltenham Town on Tuesday evening.
