Tranmere Rovers vs. Latics

Sky Bet League Two - Matchday 45

30 April 2022

Latics make the short journey to Prenton Park for their penultimate match of the campaign and last away game of the season (3pm KO).

With the 2-1 defeat at Boundary Park to Salford City, last time out and results going against thee team elsewhere, Oldham’s fate was sealed, and they will be competing in the National League next season.

Form Guide

Tranmere have won one of their previous seven league meetings.

Still, with an outside chance of sneaking into the playoff places, Rovers know they would need to beat Oldham and hope other results go their way for that to remain a possibility.

Last time out, they fell to a 2-0 loss away at Stevenage, a result that contributed to Latics’ relegation from League Two.

Four of the games in the aforementioned run have been draws, showing that despite a dip in form, Rovers are still a tough side to beat.

They sit in 10th place in the table, four points away from 7th placed Sutton United with two games still to play.

Rovers’ Last Six:

  1. Stevenage 2-0 Tranmere Rovers
  2. Tranmere Rovers 2-0 Exeter City
  3. Bradford City 1-1 Tranmere Rovers
  4. Tranmere Rovers 1-1 Bristol Rovers
  5. Tranmere Rovers 2-2 Carlisle United
  6. Colchester United 1-0 Tranmere Rovers

Head-to-Head

Meetings: 93

Latics wins: 36
Tranmere wins: 35
Draws: 22

Scored - 127
Conceded - 131

Latics have won neither of the previous two meetings with Rovers, losing out in both League Two and the EFL Trophy.

However, they have had success against Rovers in this campaign. In the league cup, they overcame a two-goal deficit with a goal from Dylan Bahamboula and an own goal helping them take it to penalties, where Oldham kept their nerve to take their place in the hat for the next round.

Familiar Face

Peter Clarke is a name that Latics fans will remember fondly.

Former Oldham captain, Clarke has been ever-present in the Rovers line-up, completing every single minute of their opening 44 games of the campaign.

The Southport born defender began his footballing career on Merseyside with Everton, where he made 14 senior appearances.

Upon leaving the Toffees on a permanent basis, Clarke joined Blackpool where he made over 100 appearances and was even made captain.

In between leaving Blackpool and joining up with Latics, Clarke represented Southend United, Huddersfield Town, Blackpool again and Bury.

Whilst as an Oldham player, the popular defender completed 124 appearances for the club, scoring 15 times in the process.

Following the 2018/19 season, Clarke would depart Boundary Park and head to Fleetwood Town before joining up with his current club in January 2020.

He has even represented England’s under 21 sides on eight occasions, showing his pedigree as a footballer.

In The Dugout

Micky Mellon is the man in the dugout for the hosts.

Mellon is currently enjoying his second spell in charge at Prenton Park.

His first top job in the game came with Fleetwood Town. He let Town to two promotions during his tenure.

Other than a brief spell as Barnsley caretaker boss, his next job was Shrewsbury Town before his first spell with Tranmere.

His next opportunity took him north of the border with Dundee United. He left after the 2020/21 season with United finishing ninth.

Match Reports

Tranmere Rovers 2-0 Latics

30 April 2022

Latics’ final away game of the season ended in defeat at Prenton Park.

Josh Hawkes and Kane Hemmings scored either side of half-time as John Sheridan’s much-changed side suffered another disappointing afternoon on the road.

With one eye no doubt on next season, Sheridan made five changes to the Latics team from the previous weekend, including starts for Harry Vaughan, Will Sutton and Jayson Leutwiler in goal.

Tranmere still have chance an outside of reaching the play-offs but the first half, for large parts, was nondescript.

Chances for Latics were scarce, Sutton heading over from a Jack Stobbs free-kick, while the winger also had a shot blocked by Peter Clarke after cutting in from the left.

Sam Hart also delivered a cross from the same flank to Davis Keillor-Dunn, only for but goalkeeper Joe Murphy to reach it first.

Josh Hawkes put Tranmere in front midway through the first half, sending a long-range shot into the bottom left-hand corner.

Hemmings should have given the home side the lead earlier but sent his shot straight at Leutwiler when clean through on goal.

The striker also missed a gilt-edged chance after half-time, clearing the crossbar with the goal gaping, receiving the loose ball when unattended in the area ftaer Kyle Jameson had done well with an initial challenge on Hawkes.

Hemmings did get his goal just after the hour, sending a decisive finish past the reach of Leutwiler.

Although Latics saw more of the ball as the second half progressed after three substitutions, clear chances were difficult to come by.

Jameson headed wide from a Nicky Admas, free-kick, while Callum Whelan had a chance and the closest the visitors came was when Stobbs drilled a low shot towards the bottom right corner, only to be denied by Murphy at full stretch.

 

Oldham Athletic: Leutwiler, Clarke, Hart, Keillor-Dunn, Jameson, Stobbs, Hunt (Whelan 54), Missilou (Adams 63), Luamba, Sutton, Vaughan (Hope 54).

Subs not used: Southerington, Couto, Hopcutt, Da Silva.

 

Tranmere Rovers: Murphy, Dacres-Cogley, MacDonald, Davies, Morris (McPake 71), Hemmings, Hawkes, Warrington, Nevitt, O’Connor, Clarke.

Subs not used: Doohan, Spearing, Colley, Foley, Maynard, Hayde.
