MATCH PREVIEW: Gateshead FC vs. Oldham Athletic

8 November 2019

Latics travel to the North East to take on Gateshead on Sunday (12:45pm KO) in the Emirates FA Cup.

While Oldham are kicking off their FA Cup campaign on Sunday, Gateshead started their cup run in September, winning 6-0 against Ramsbottom.

Gateshead are currently ninth in the National League North, level on points with Brackley Town who occupy the last available play-off spot, with a game in hand.

Gateshead are one of a handful of clubs in the National League North that operate as a full-time professional club.

Form Guide

Latics come into this cup tie on a three-game unbeaten run including Saturday’s impressive fightback against Northampton Town.

Gateshead made it five wins from six on Tuesday night with a 3-0 home win over Curzon Ashton, bouncing back from a 3-2 defeat against Guiseley at the weekend.

Gateshead’s last six:

  1. Gateshead 6-0 Ramsbottom (FA Cup)
  2. Kidsgrove 0-1 Gateshead (FA Cup)
  3. Gateshead 1-0 Gloucester
  4. Gateshead 5-0 Colne (FA Cup)
  5. Gateshead 2-3 Guiseley
  6. Gateshead 3-0 Curzon Ashton

Head to 'Heed'

This is the first time that the two clubs have met in the FA Cup competition format.

The two clubs have met previously but not since the formation of the current Gateshead club in 1977.

Route To Round One

Gateshead have made it to the first round of the FA Cup without shipping a goal.

They kicked off in style with an emphatic 6-0 win over Northern Premier League Division One North West side Ramsbottom.

A solitary second-half goal in the next round against Kidsgrove ensured the Heed’s progress.

Gateshead finally booked their place in the first round proper in front of their home fans with a 5-0 win against Colne.

What We Said

Dino Maamria: "The televised game tells you it is a potential banana skin, obviously they looked at the fixture list and thought a football league club going to a non-league club two divisions below could potentially be a tough one.

"I've been there before whereas a non-league club we look at those games and wait for it all season to get a team a division or two above you.

"Their players will be trying to prove they are better than our players and they are worthy of football league careers, there is no question they will be playing the game of their lives.

"What we need to make sure is their game is not as good as our game on the day, so that's what we've got to prepare for. We've got to be professional, we've got to get the basics right and we've got to play our football. If we do that we'll win the game.

"I think if you give anyone a chance to impose themselves on you they will give you problems, so I think as long as we go there with confidence and self-belief with the building blocks of what we've been doing for the past two to three weeks then I think we'll be fine."

What They Said

Mike Williamson: "I think it’s business as usual kind of week because we believe in the preparation and the environment is to make us up to more on the weekend so regardless of the competition were going into, we want the lads to make sure they’re as ready as they can be.

"We’re naturally all excited and looking forward to it but we’ve got to make sure we play the game and not the occasion.

"We are obviously going to respect them because they’re a league club but we’ve got confidence we can cause an upset."

Team News

Maamria: "Chris Eagles came back last week and had a good game, his first full 90 minutes for a while.

"Egert is obviously still available after his recent suspension. Maouche came on last Saturday and I think he changed the game, he's back again from injury. So, I've got one or two decisions to make this weekend.”

Williamson: "We’re all good, no new injury concerns this week and everyone’s looking forward to it.”

Watch Out For…

JJ O’Donnell – The Gateshead wide man added another goal to his tally for the season when he opened the scoring in Gateshead’s 3-0 win over Curzon Ashton on Tuesday evening.

He arrived on loan from fellow conference side Luton Town in January 2013 and was part of the Gateshead side that came just 90 minutes away from a place in the Football League in 2014.

The then loanee from Luton wrote his name in the hearts of the Gateshead faithful with a stoppage-time goal in the play-off semi-final second leg against Grimsby Town, confirming the Heed’s place in the Wembley playoff final.

His move was made permanent in the following summer.

JJ would later be sidelined for over two years as a result of a rare foot condition. During this time, he stayed on with the club assuming the role of kit manager.

MATCH REPORT: Latics Progress Into The Next Round Of FA Cup

10 November 2019

Latics overcame a potential banana skin by beating Gateshead 2-1 to make sure of their place in the second round of the Emirates FA Cup.

Goals from Filipe Morais and Jonny Smith on either side of a Liam Agnew leveller were enough to ensure Oldham saw of their National League North opponents.

It wasn’t an ideal start for Oldham as they were forced into an early substitution in the 12th minute, Christopher Missilou was replaced by Mohammed Maouche.

It was the hosts who came out of the blocks quickest and Latics stopper Zeus De La Paz was called into action in the 11th minute when Nicky Deverdics had a shot from range and then again in the 27th, De La Paz getting down well to save Greg Olley’s free kick.

Latics took the lead against the run of play, Tom Hamer’s long throw was flicked on to Filipe Morais who headed it past Brad James to open the scoring in the 28th minute.

Athletic came close to doubling the lead before the interval when Scott Wilson did well to get down to the by-line before pulling it back to Jonny Smith who saw his goalbound effort blocked by teammate Morais.

Dino Maamria’s side had the first chance of the second half than they did in the first and nearly doubled their advantage in the 51st minute. A smart corner from Jonny Smith found Chris McCann who saw his thumping effort expertly saved by Heed stopper Brad James.

De La Paz saved well from Olley to deny the hosts a leveller but he was left with no chance when Liam Agnew rifled home from outside of the box.

The equaliser shifted momentum as Gateshead began to dictate the play and would have taken the lead if it wasn’t for two brilliant saves from De La Paz in the 64th minute and Barrow went inches away from giving the Heed the lead in the 67th. He was called into action yet again in the 70th minute making a brilliant save from a one on one with Dominic Tear.

Latics weathered the storm in the best way possible, the visitors retook the lead in 77th mintute when Jonny Smith cut inside brilliantly before a cultured finish into the left corner of the Gateshead net.

It could have been game over in the 86th minute, Maouche found a way past Alex Nicholson but couldn’t find a way past James in the Gateshead goal.

Latics were able to hold on despite a few worrying moments towards the back end of the game including a heroic block by Jamie Stott and Olley dragging an effort wide from the edge of the box.

Oldham survived a goal mouth scramble in the sixth minute of time added on but held firm to ensure their place in the hat for the second round.
