MATCH PREVIEW: Oldham Athletic vs. Colchester United

30 August 2019

Oldham Athletic are back at Boundary Park as they host Colchester United in the Sky Bet League Two fixture tomorrow (3pm).

Latics go into the game looking to build on a positive week of results, as they earned a credible draw against Exeter City and then followed up with their first league victory of the season at Cambridge United on Saturday.

Head Coach Laurent Banide reflected on the win against Cambridge and stated the importance of building on that result ahead of Colchester.

“The result is important for the spirit and it’s important for when we work and it gives us more optimism, but a result is a result and the game is a game.” He said.

“We have work to do because we played well, we worked and we try, but we must play better if we want to have more positive results.”

Centre-back Tomas Egert is still a few weeks away from full match sharpness, whilst forward Marvin Kokos remains side-lined with an injury.

After a slow start to the season, The U’s also picked up their first three points of the campaign on Saturday, with a narrow 1-0 victory over Northampton Town.

Whilst Colchester stunned Premier League Crystal Palace in the second round of the Carabao Cup on Tuesday.

After holding The Eagles to a goalless draw in normal time, 18-year-old academy graduate Noah Chilvers scored the decisive spot-kick to send the side through to the next round, where they will now host Tottenham Hotspur.

Midfielder Harry Pell is out with an achilles injury whilst Tom Lapsile remains side-lined with a quad muscle injury.

Defensive duo Omar Sowumni and Cohen Bramhall are also out with injuries.

Last season, the clubs played out a thrilling 3-3 draw at Boundary Park, with Latics netting two last gasp goals to come from behind and secure a point

Latics' last home victory against The U’s came in March 2006, as Richard Butcher scored a late winner to seal a 1-0 result.

Oldham are priced at 19/10 to beat Colchester tomorrow.

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

MATCH REPORT: Latics Suffer Defeat To Colchester United

31 August 2019

Oldham Athletic suffered a 1-0 defeat to Colchester United at Boundary Park as Frank Nouble netted just before half-time.

Latics nearly took an early lead in the 7th minute as Chris Eagles started a counter-attack, he got to the visitors’ box and laid the ball to Mohammed Maouche and his strike hit the post.

Shortly after, Christopher Missilou drove at the Colchester United defence before passing to Dylan Fage and he beat his man before laying it off to Maouche but his shot was blocked by Scott Wilson and the danger was cleared.

The U’s first chance of the game fell to striker Luke Norris, but he scuffed his effort into the hands of Gary Woods in the Latics goal.

The hosts should have taken the lead in the 24th minute after a clever ball from Maouche allowed Fage behind the defence and he put a low cross into the box but Wilson couldn’t make any contact with the ball only yards away from the goal.

Moments later, Maouche slotted Wilson through on goal but Dean Gerken rushed out and bravely denied the striker.

John McGreal’s side nearly broke the deadlock as they countered and Frank Nouble slotted Courtney Senior in behind the Oldham defence, but Woods rushed out and tackled the winger. The loose ball fell to Norris and he lobbed the ball over the goalkeeper, but it landed on the roof of the goal.

Colchester managed to take the lead just before half-time as Norris played a ball over the top of the Latics defence to Nouble and he raced in on goal and placed his shot in the bottom corner.

Early in the second half, the U’s nearly doubled their lead but Ben Stevenson’s shot deflected just wide of the Latics goal.

Laurent Banide’s side came close to equalising as Tom Hamer’s long throw found the head of Missilou but his header went just over the visitors’ goal.

Fage drove at the Colchester defence before unleashing a powerful strike on goal but his attempt was saved by Gerken.

Colchester should have extended their lead as Senior ran at the Latics defence before slotting Theo Robinson in on goal and his shot hit the bar before Norris’ strike was saved by Woods.

Eagles whipped a great delivery into the box and Maouche got onto the end of it but could only head wide of the target.
