Swindon Town vs. Latics

Sky Bet League Two - Matchday 34

11 March 2022

Latics make the journey to Wiltshire as John Sheridan faces his former side, Swindon Town at the County Ground (3pm KO).

Last weekend, Oldham suffered their first defeat under the leadership of Shez with over 7,000 supporters inside Boundary Park against Carlisle United.

Davis Keillor-Dunn witnessed their shot-stopper save his penalty before Hallam Hope put Latics ahead in first-half stoppage time. After the restart, Omari Patrick levelled the scoreline, and then, Morgan Feeney headed a 94th winner for the Cumbrians.

Form Guide

The Robins enter the clash with four wins in their last six outings and will be relishing the opportunity to continue their play-off push on Saturday against Latics. 

In their previous display, Swindon suffered a 3-1 defeat at the hands of in-form Exeter City at St James' Park. Ben Garner's outfit was without their main man, Harry McKirdy, due to suspension and will also miss our fixture.

Outstandingly, our opponents enjoyed a three-game run of victories in which they scored 11 goals and conceded zero - a run that they will be hoping to rekindle as soon as possible.

The Robins' Last Six:

  1. Exeter City 3-1 Swindon Town
  2. Bradford City 1-2 Swindon Town
  3. Swindon Town 1-2 Salford City
  4. Swindon Town 5-0 Walsall
  5. Carlisle United 0-3 Swindon Town
  6. Swindon Town 3-0 Scunthorpe United

Head-to-Head

Meetings: 59

Latics wins: 22
Swindon Town wins: 21
Draws: 16

Last time out, the Robins secured an impressive 3-1 victory against the 'boys in blue' at Boundary Park back in October.

Harry McKirdy, a characteristic attacker with an abundance of ability, found himself on the scoresheet alongside a brace from Tyreece Simpson as Carl Piergianni netted a late consolation.

Latics' last win over Swindon occurred under the tenure of Shez in April 2016. Goals from Liam Kelly and Curtis Main sealed a resolute 2-0 scoreline on home turf.

Upon our last visit to the County Ground, Oldham tasted defeat against a high-flying opposition. Kaiyne Woolery fired his side into the lead before former Latics forward, Eoin Doyle added a second.

Watch Out For

Jack Payne occupies the status of 'Key Man' for the Robins ahead of our encounter.

So far in this campaign, the attacking-midfield has featured on 28 occasions and, impressively, netted ten goals whilst applying himself as a leader on and off the pitch.

The 27-year-old began his career at Southend United and exemplified his quality in the final third which helped the club to promotion to Sky Bet League One before Huddersfield Town swooped in for his signature.

After limited game time at the Terriers, Payne enjoyed loan stints at Oxford United, Blackburn Rovers and Bradford City. To add to this, he spent time at Lincoln City on a permanent basis in the 2019/20 campaign.

In The Dugout

Ben Garner is currently enjoying his first season in charge of Swindon.

A former apprentice of José Mourinho, Garner established himself in the coaching environment whilst an academy coach at Crystal Palace before he progressed to first-team coach in 2012.

The 41-year-old developed talented individuals throughout his time in Croydon, and then, became the assistant coach alongside Tony Pulis at West Bromwich Albion which highlighted his reputation amongst his peers.

Following a stint at ATK in the Indian Super League, Garner struggled during his time at Bristol Rovers before Swindon's new owner, Clem Morfuni, appointed him at the Robins.

Match Reports

Swindon Town 1-0 Latics

12 March 2022

For the second week running there was late heartache for Latics as they were denied what would have been a hard-fought point in stoppage time at Swindon.

Seven days after surrendering a lead to lose against Carlisle, there was acute disappointment once more, Dion Conroy converting a header at the far post to consign John Sheridan’s side to defeat.

It completed a calamitous period of added time for Latics, who minutes earlier had Jordan Clarke sent off for a second yellow card.

Although Oldham had to fend off heavy pressure from their play-off chasing opponents as the game progressed, the visitors would have been worth a share of the spoils having put their bodies on the line throughout the second period.

To that end, no-one summed up the Latics character more than Carl Piergianni but ultimately his efforts were in vain.

What’s more, with two glorious chances inside the opening thee minutes, Oldham should have found themselves in front but as it was those chances were to ultimately prove costly.

Sheridan named an unchanged line-up from the team that lost against Carlisle and there was good intent from the visitors early on.

Piergianni was unable to direct a header past goalkeeper Jojo Wollacott having read the flight of the ball from Nicky Adams after a free-kick from Clarke.

And within 60 seconds, Dylan Bahamboula was unable to make the most of the space afforded to him on the edge of the area, shooting over after the ball had sat up invitingly.

Further chances would follow, Christopher Missilou narrowly clearing the crossbar from similar range after good play from Bahamboula in releasing Sam Hart to supply the pass.

Bahamboula was heavily involved in the early stages, teeing up David Keillor-Dunn, whose effort was held by Wollacott but the home side then started to show more authority.

Piergianni was required to make the first of several last-ditch blocks to deny Ricky Aguiar, who was also denied by Danny Rogers.

Bahamboula also led the Oldham charge at the start of the second period, shooting over from 30 yards after latching onto a loose ball before displaying excellent footwork as he broke into the area, electing to square to Adams rather than shoot but he was unable to find the pass.

Yet as the second half wore on, Latics found themselves increasingly on the back foot. Ellis Iandolo shot over and substitute Jonny Williams sent an effort into the side-netting.

Hart produced a last-ditch challenge to deny Louis Reed before a brilliant reaction save from Rogers kept out Williams but there was nothing he could do to prevent Conroy in stoppage time.

 

Oldham Athletic: Rogers, Clark, Hart, McGahey (Fage 46), Piergianni, Adams, Whelan, Hope (Stobbs 87), Keillor-Dunn, Bahamboula, Missilou.
