Stevenage vs. Latics

Sky Bet League Two - Matchday 40

1 April 2022

© Eddie Garvey

Latics are looking to make it back-to-back Sky Bet League Two wins when they travel down south to take on Stevenage tomorrow (3pm KO).

The game is a crucial fixture, with both clubs currently flirting with relegation to the Vanarama National League.

With Oldham’s impressive 2-0 victory over the in-form Leyton Orient, Latics moved above Stevenage and out of the bottom two for the time being.

Form Guide

The hosts come into this game on the back of a poor run of form.

Boro are winless from their previous ten League Two outings and have picked up just three points during that run.

Their last win came on the 29th of January 2022 as they beat Harrogate Town and they will be hoping to pick that form up when they welcome Latics to the Lamex Stadium.

That form leaves them currently in the relegation zone in 23rd place, although they do have a game in hand on Latics at the moment.

The only difference between the two sides at the moment is goal difference.

Boro’s Last Six:

  1. Exeter City 2-1 Stevenage
  2. Stevenage 1-2 Northampton Town
  3. Stevenage 0-2 Newport County
  4. Leyton Orient 2-2 Stevenage
  5. Port Vale 2-0 Stevenage
  6. Stevenage 0-4 Bristol Rovers

Head-to-Head

Meetings: 12

Latics wins: 4
Stevenage wins: 5
Draws: 3

Scored - 14
Conceded - 15

Earlier in the season when the two clubs met, it was Oldham who managed to get the better out of the two teams.

A first-half brace from the in fire Davis Keillor-Dunn complemented by a second-half strike by Dylan Bahamboula made sure Latics fans went home happy with a 3-0 win at Boundary Park.

Watch Out For

Elliott List has got 12 goals to his name in all competitions this season.

Top scoring thus far for the Boro although List is currently enduring a poor run of form that means his last goal for the club came against Rochdale back in November.

He will be hoping to improve on that as his side head into a huge game against Latics.

List, 24 began his career with Crystal Palace before switching to Gillingham, where he made his professional debut as well as going on loan to Braintree Town before establishing himself as a regular at Stevenage.

Going into this game he has 26 goals in 111 appearances as a Stevenage player.

In The Dugout

Steve Evans is the man in the dugout for the hosts.

A notorious character with the game, Evans developed through the youth ranks at Bolton Wanderers and went onto enjoy a playing career in the lower leagues of Scotland which peaked at Albion Rovers as he boasted a record of 28 goals in 86 league appearances.

In 1994, his managerial tenure began with the 59-year-old occupying the hotseat at Stamford. His stint in charge would last four years before Boston United swooped in for his signature as his career gained momentum.

Following that, Evans would succeed in roles at Crawley Town and Rotherham United which established himself in the EFL management circuit with spells at Leeds United, Mansfield Town, Peterborough United and Gillingham following for the Scotsman.

Match Officials

The official in the middle for the game is Andy Davies.

Toner last officiated a Latics game in April 2018 for our 2-2 draw away at AFC Wimbledon. On that day, he handed out three yellow cards and one red card.

He's taken charge of 28 games, so far, this campaign, handing out a total of 79 yellow cards and two red cards.

Toner will be assisted by Mark Dwyer and James Wilson, with Carl Brook as the Fourth Official.

Sky Bet Odds

Despite Oldham’s win midweek, they are still outsiders to take all three points in this relegation six pointer.

Latics are out at 10/3 to make it consecutive league wins whilst Stevenage are odds on favourites at 5/6.

23/10 is the price for the draw.

Match Reports

Stevenage 0-1 Latics

2 April 2022

© Alun Roberts

In an intense affair against fellow strugglers Stevenage, Latics picked up a mammoth victory whilst being buoyed on by over 1,000 vocal fans.

A surprise selection, Jamie Hopcutt showcased his worth and ability as he became the hero for the visitors, scoring the decisive goal.

It arrived in the 15th minute when Nicky Adams carved the opportunity for Jordan Clarke to exploit space towards the right touchline, the full-back delivered a precise cross to the attacker, and he coolly navigated his header into the far corner which was enough for the three points.

With tension arising ahead of kick-off, Shez opted for one change to his team following a midweek win against Leyton Orient. Hopcutt returned to the starting XI and endeavoured to make a difference at the Lamex Stadium.

The hosts nearly had the perfect start to the ‘six-pointer’ as Luke Norris should’ve opened the scoring within the opening exchanges. The ball landed perfectly to the frontman inside the six-yard box, but he flicked his effort just past the near corner, a massive let off.

Just 15 minutes into the match, the away end was sent into chaotic scenes as Latics took the lead courtesy of a well-worked piece of football. After neat interchanging play between Adams and Clarke on the flank, the right-back delivered a pinpoint cross on the head of Hopcutt, and the former Östersund FK star expertly steered his header over Christy Pym and into the far corner.

Steve Evans, a notorious character in the industry, would’ve been enraged when Jake Taylor failed to equalise despite being gifted a golden opportunity. Danny Rogers punched the ball into a dangerous area, and it fell to him with the goal at his mercy, but from just a few yards out, he remarkably smashed over the crossbar.

Following that, Luther James-Wildin illustrated an immense burst of pace out wide before he pulled it back to Elliott List on the edge of the box, but the attacker curled his effort just past the post with the 'keeper at full stretch.

After the interval, Stevenage continued to apply pressure on their opposition which was exemplified as they managed to deliver a cross into the box, and unsurprisingly it was headed away by Carl Piergianni, but into the path of onrushing Michael Bostwick. A legend at the club, the defensive-midfielder could only slice the strike off target from the edge of the penalty box.

James-Wilden, a constant bright spark on the right-hand side of the pitch, consistently crafted opportunities for his teammates which were simply not put away. The 24-year-old produced an inviting delivery across the face of goal, but to the relief of the backline, no one in Red could capitalise on the cross.

As the ‘boys in blue’ battled and remained resolute, Christopher Missilou spearheaded a counter-attack with a second goal the clear intention being instructed by Shez in the dugout. The midfielder dribbled past Bostwick with ease but lacked composure in the final third as he witnessed his strike sail over the crossbar.

The fourth official indicated a minimum of four minutes added on with a fear-ridden away contingent biting their nails. Hearts were certainly in mouths when a manic scramble took place inside the Greater Manchester side’s area, after several cases of pinball, it finally landed to Norris, but he surprisingly blasted his strike over the target.

Despite an injured corner flag adding more time on, Oldham held strong which meant that they picked up a massively important win in the bid to maintain their Sky Bet League Two status.

Once again, Shez thoroughly embraced the stunning atmosphere created by the Latics supporters on the pitch at full-time as belief develops stronger about survival.
