Latics are on the hunt for back-to-back wins as they welcome Wealdstone FC to Boundary Park for a midweek fixture under the lights.
A crowd of over 8,000 flocked to Boundary Park on Saturday to watch Oldham overcome Dorking Wanderers 3-2 with goals from Hallam Hope, Chris Porter and Ben Tollitt giving them a three goal lead.
A late resurgence from Wanderers saw them fire themselves back into contention but Latics stayed firm to secure maximum points.
The result lifted Oldham up into the playoff spots at this early stage of the season.
Wealdstone are the second side to make a competitive trip to Boundary Park this term and come into the game on the back of one win and one defeat.
In the season opener, they triumphed 3-2 over Bromley before falling to a 1-0 defeat on the road to Eastleigh at the weekend.
Their early season results have them currently sat midtable in 12th position in the National League.
This is Wealdstone’s third season in the fifth tier since winning promotion from the National League South.
They have made steady progress in the two seasons so far. Last campaign they finished 16th, an improvement on 19th the season prior, gaining 16 more points whilst scoring more goals and conceding fewer.
Likewise with Dorking at the weekend, this will be the first time that Latics have faced off against Wealdstone.
Watch out for
Olufela Olomola is a summer acquisition to strengthen Wealdstone’s attacking talent for the new season.
The 24-year-old forward made an ideal start to his career with his new club, scoring 17 minutes into his league debut, setting Wealdstone on their way to a 3-2 victory.
The London born star came through the highly revered youth academy system at Arsenal and also spent part of his youth career at Southampton’s highly rated youth set up.
Olomola has previous experience in the Football League with a number of clubs; Yeovil Town, Carlisle United and Hartlepool United.
The striker/winger never really made an impact at Pools and will feel he has a point to prove following his release at the end of the previous season.
In the dugout
Stuart Maynard is the man in the dugout for the visitors.
March 2021 saw Maynard given his first job in senior management as he took the job he currently holds as Wealdstone boss.
He had previously been assistant manager at the club and was on the back-room staff when they gained promotion from the National League South to the National League.
As a player, Maynard played for a host of different non-league outfits.
Sky Bet have Latics as odds on favourites to make it consecutive league triumphs, priced at 3/5 to make it seven points from the first possible seven.
Wealdstone are considered outsiders at 15/4 whilst the draw can be backed at 14/5.
The man in the middle is Andrew Miller, and he’ll be assisted by Scott Taylor and Emmanuel Edet, with Joseph Goodwin occupying the role of fourth official.
