Crawley Town vs. Latics

Sky Bet League Two - Matchday 32

1 March 2022

© Eddie Garvey

Latics are back in Sky Bet League Two action with another trip down South as they take on Crawley Town tonight (7:45pm KO).

Despite maintaining an unbeaten run since the arrival of John Sheridan in the 1-1 draw against Colchester United, Latics have slipped back into the bottom two and this game represents a chance to move back out of the relegation places.

The points were shared in Essex after Davis Keillor-Dunn had opened the scoring in the first half, but Oldham were unable to hold on and an own goal early on in the second 45 completed the scoring.

Form Guide

Like Oldham, Crawley come into this tie on a good run of form. With just one defeat from their previous six outings, it will be a tough game for Sheridan’s men.

Their form is highlighted by their impressive victory last time out. Runaway leaders Forest Green Rovers travelled to Crawley but left empty handed following a 2-1 defeat.

The only loss in that sequence came against Hartlepool United, who happen to be one of the form sides in the division at present.

Despite their recent good fortunes, Latics fans can take comfort in their opposition’s home form.

Other than the aforementioned success over Forest Green, their previous win at home came back on New Year’s Day when Colchester United were dispatched 3-1.

The Red Devils’ Last Six:

  1. Crawley Town 2-1 Forest Green Rovers
  2. Crawley Town 0-1 Hartlepool United
  3. Harrogate Town 1-3 Crawley Town
  4. Crawley Town 2-2 Stevenage
  5. Swindon Town 1-1 Crawley Town
  6. Bradford City 1-2 Crawley Town

28 February 2022

This is the first time this season that the two clubs will go up against each other, with the second time due to happen on the last day of the season.

The last time that the sides did face off against each other was on the 5th of April last year at the Broadfield Stadium.

It turned out to be a very good day for Latics as they eased to a comfortable 4-1 victory.

Goals just before the break from Conor McAleny and Cameron Borthwick-Jackson put them in the ascendency and a second for McAleny less than two minutes into the second half put the game to bed.

Both teams scored a goal late on to alter the scoreline, Dylan Bahamboula supplying Oldham’s fourth.

Watch Out For

Tom Nichols is likely to be a threat for the Reds.

Tom Nichols.jpg

With eight goals and three assists to his name in the league for his club this term, the 28-year old forward has been directly involved in 28% of their goals.

His form has been decent of late, with the striker netting in both of the previous two games that he has started for Crawley.

He scored in the 3-1 win over Harrogate as well as netting both of Crawley’s goals in the 2-2 draw with Stevenage.

Nichols initially made a name for himself at Exeter City, where he was helped along the way with a number of useful loan moves.

His form for the Grecians won him a move to Peterborough United. He enjoyed some success with Posh, including scoring a goal against Premier League side Chelsea in the FA Cup.

July 2017 saw him again on the move to Bristol Rovers in a move that didn’t quite go to plan for him and he joined current club in September 2020 on a free transfer.

A great first season with the club not only saw him rewarded with a one year extension to his contract but it also saw him take home the club’s Player of The Year award.

In The Dugout

John Yems is the man in the dugout for the hosts.

John Yems.jpg

The straight talking boss got his first job in football management at non-league outfit Horsham.

He first came to Crawley Town back in 2006 as a joint caretaker manager. His other experience includes the assistant manager posting at Exeter City.

After time spent as a scout for a number of clubs, including Newcastle United, Yems took the manager’s job with the Red Devils in December 2019.

Match Reports

Crawley Town 2-2 Latics

1 March 2022

The new-found character has been a prominent feature for Latics since the return of John Sheridan and as the driving rain continued to fall at Broadfield Stadium, it was there for all to see again.

Just when it seemed that the unbeaten start to life under Sheridan was about to come end, Christopher Missilou struck in brilliant fashion to earn a share of the spoils from another battling away performance.

If the overriding emotion in collecting a point at Colchester on Saturday was one of disappointment, then this time there was immense pride as Sheridan’s side dug deep to earn a deserved point.

There was no little quality, too, Missilou’s strike coming after a sensational opener from Hallam Hope as he found the top corner in style.

The equaliser from Millilou came after a quick-fire double from Ashley Nadesan had put Crawley in front during a frenetic second half but these days Latics should never be written off.

Sheridan was disappointed with the ground Oldham conceded in the second half at Colchester and his side survived a scare midway through the first period.

Having been afforded the space to work his way inside, a 25-yard effort from Isaac Hutchinson was deflected onto the top of the bar and the attacking midfielder continued to pick up pockets of space which caused the visitors problems.

That moment aside, the first period was a mundane affair, Crawley enjoying the better of the play but clear chances were at a premium.

Latics’ biggest source of danger came down the left, Sam Hart linking well a number of times with the marauding Nicky Adams but Sheridan’s side lacked a presence in attack.

Missilou cleared the crossbar after receiving the second ball from an Adams free-kick and Latics’ best chance of the half came through Keillor-Dunn.

On the back of four goals in his previous five games, the attacker showed excellent footwork to weave his way to the edge of the area. As the chance opened up, he tried to bend a shot towards goal, only for the ball to be deflected just wide.

There was an added impetus about Latics straight away after the break and after showing their intentions with a great break involving Missilou and Adams, the visitors took the lead with a goal of real quality from Hope.

Having struggled for form and confidence throughout the season, the striker netted his second goal in three games to illustrate his renewed belief under Sheridan.

Receiving a beautiful cross-field pass from Jordan Clarke, Hope cut in from the left before bending a delightful across the dive of Glenn Morris and into the top right-hand corner.

The celebrations, however, were short-lived. Nadesan drew Crawley level within two minutes, dispatching a neat half-volley after a long ball forward from Tony Craig was cleverly touched on by Tom Nichols.

And the Crawley striker completed a quick-fire double, outpacing the Oldham defence before sending a measured finish past Danny Rogers.

Yet Latics under Sheridan do not know when they are beaten and they summoned their character again to draw level with another goal of real class.

As he approached the edge of the box, Missilou unleashed a low drive which hit the inside of the post before crossing the line to secure a well-earned point.
