MATCH PREVIEW: Oldham Athletic vs. Accrington Stanley

8 October 2019

Oldham Athletic are back in action tonight as they take on Accrington Stanley at Boundary Park in the Trophy (7:45pm).

At the weekend, Latics picked up a point in a 1-1 draw with Cheltenham Town at home. Filipe Morais gave Latics the lead, but a late goal from Ryan Broom snatched a point for the visitors.

Latics currently top Group B in the Trophy after defeating Liverpool U21s 3-2 at Boundary Park.

Head Coach Dino Maamria is determined to progress further in the Trophy and claims he’s putting out a strong starting XI.

"I see it firstly as a good chance for us to progress to the next round, we need that, and we need to win because winning is good for any environment.

“All I've got to do is prepare our team, I'm picking a strong eleven as strong as it can be as I've got to be mindful of Saturday as well and we have a few sore bodies after the game at the weekend so I've got to be mindful of that, but our intention tomorrow is to win the game without a shadow doubt."

Urko Vera, Gary Woods, Zak Mills and Johan Branger-Engone are all unavailable for selection due to injury, but the rest of the squad are fit.

Maamria did hint that a couple of players are carrying knocks so they may not be risked tonight.

Last weekend, Accrington Stanley drew 2-2 at Wham Stadium against Oxford United which sees John Coleman’s side drop down to 18th in Sky Bet League Two.

In this competition, Stanley beat Fleetwood Town 2-1 to leave them on three points in the group.

The last time Oldham played Stanley was on 6th November 2010 away in the FA Cup, where Latics were beaten 3-2.

Oldham Athletic are priced at 7/4 to beat Accrington Stanley.

MATCH REPORT: Latics' Ten Men Beaten By League One Accrington Stanley

8 October 2019

Latics were condemned to their first defeat in the Trophy this season as goals from Sadou Diallo, Offrande Zanzala and Jordan Clark sealed the win for Accrington Stanley at Boundary Park.

Oldham started the game brightly and nearly took the lead after just four minutes as Jonny Smith delivered a corner into the box and it was met by the head of Jamie Stott, but his powerful header was saved by Toby Savin.

Later on, Christopher Missilou was brought down outside the area and Smith tried his luck but was denied by the Accrington Stanley goalkeeper. Although, he could only palm it as far as Alex Iacovitti and his cross nearly snuck in at the back post.

Missilou continued to cause Stanley problems as he drove at their defence and beat his man, but his strike was straight at Savin.

The visitors took the lead in the 30th minute after Accrington played a free-kick short to Diallo and he blasted a strike into the top corner to give the visitors the lead.

John Coleman’s side continued to apply pressure and Jordan Clark have an effort on goal forcing Gregor Zabret into making a smart stop.

Accrington doubled their advantage when Tom Hamer brought down Lamin Kaba Sherif in the area and the referee point to the spot. Zanzala stepped up and managed to slot his penalty under Zabret.

Just before half-time, Dino Maamria’s side were reduced to ten after Dylan Fage received a straight red card for a challenge on a Stanley player.

After the restart, Zabret produced a smart save to deny Diallo from close range before the Latics defence managed to clear the danger.

Oldham came close to pulling a goal back after Mohamad Sylla intercepted a pass from a defender and gave the ball to Scott Wilson, he laid it off to Filipe Morais and his attempt on goal was tipped over the bar by Savin.

The visitors nearly found another goal as Kaba Sherif broke clean through on goal, but he couldn’t find the target from a tight angle.

Accrington did have their third goal of the game in the 86th minute as the ball was played into the box to Clark and he slotted past Zabret to seal his sides’ win.
