MATCH PREVIEW: Oldham Athletic vs. Colchester United

21 September 2018

Oldham Athletic will look to make it two wins as the bounce as they take on Colchester United in the Sky Bet League Two at Boundary Park tomorrow afternoon (3pm).

Latics can leapfrog their Essex opponents as a point separates the teams ahead of the day’s play.

Colchester are currently the highest scorers in the league, but Frankie Bunn’s side will be going into the game full of confidence after last weekend’s 0-3 win at Grimsby Town.

However, Oldham’s home form has been a mixed bag with two wins and two defeats and Bunn believes that his side need more quality at Boundary Park.

“I think we need a bit more quality in the final third in our home games, but the difference has only been a goal, so perhaps and just being a bit brighter in and around the oppositions penalty box.” He said.

“We've taken our chances away from home when they've arisen, we ride out storms and we’ve just got to figure a way of breaking teams down at home when they sit off us.”

Latics will most likely have the same matchday squad that travelled to Grimsby with the quartet of Cameron Dummigan, Ousmane Fane, Giles Coke and Jordan Lyden still expected to be out.

The visitors are also coming into the game off the back of a 3-0 victory, beating Cambridge United at the Jobserve Community Stadium.

Striker Luke Norris is the U’s top scorer so far with four goals and they also have the threat of academy product Sammie Szmodics who will be the key men for the visitors.

Latics last faced Colchester back in January 2016 where the teams played out a 1-1 draw.

Rhys Murphy opened the scoring for Oldham before Chris Porter levelled with just over ten minutes to go for the Essex side.

Oldham are priced at 13/8 to claim the three points against Colchester.

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

MATCH REPORT: Latics Battle Back To Earn Point At Home To Colchester United

22 September 2018

Oldham Athletic came from 1-3 down to draw with Colchester United after Sam Surridge and Peter Clarke scored two goals in three minutes to gain a point for Latics.

Luke Norris scored a brace for the visitors as well as Harry Pell getting on the scoresheet, with Surridge also getting his second brace in as many games, making the game 1-2 at one point with his first of the afternoon.

Colchester created the first opening of the contest as Brennan Dickenson had an effort which deflected into the arms of Daniel Iversen.

There was a controversial decision with the game 10 minutes in as Callum Lang found himself running through on goal, only to be wiped out by U’s goalkeeper Dillon Barnes.

However, referee Anthony Backhouse only deemed it a yellow card offence, despite Lang having an open net to score had he not been taken out.

After that lifeline the visitors then took the lead from a corner as the ball found its way to Norris at the back post who had the simple task of tapping it into the net.

Latics almost responded in immediate fashion as Surridge found Chris O’Grady, but Barnes was able to get down low to his right and stop the shot.

Lang had a header at the back post which tamely rolled into arms of Barnes before Sammie Szmodics tested Iversen low to his left.

Oldham dominated possession, but it was to no avail, however Surridge had a fantastic opportunity to take the teams in level at half time.

A long diagonal was nodded down into Surridge’s path by Lang, but the Bournemouth loanee sliced his volley wide under pressure from the Colchester defence.

The second half came to life as Latics looked for the equaliser with substitute Gevaro Nepomuceno firing a shot over the bar.

However, Colchester doubled their lead as Latics failed to deal with a corner and Pell volleyed in from the edge of the box.

Surridge pulled one back for Oldham as Dan Gardner spread a beautiful pass out to Taylor, who produced a delightful cross for Surridge to tap into an empty net.

Colchester restored their two-goal lead as Norris battled his way into the Oldham box, before smashing a left footed effort past Iversen.

All hope seemed lost until Gardner lofted a freekick onto the head of Surridge and the striker flicked it into the bottom left-hand corner for his sixth league goal of the season to spark the comeback once again.

Captain Clarke then attacked Gardner’s corner minutes later to level the scores as neither side could find the winner.

Latics will be disappointed with the way they defended the Colchester goals, but they battled hard to ensure they took something from the game and make it two unbeaten.

Oldham remain sixth in the table as they look ahead to the trip to Swindon Town next Saturday.
