Latics kick off their FA Trophy campaign as they welcome Peterborough Sports to Boundary Park.
David Unsworth will be hoping that his side can build up some more momentum following a pivotal 3-2 league win over Torquay United.
An own goal, a Ben Tolitt worldie and a deft chip to give Timmy Abraham his first senior goal made sure Oldham secured a huge three points against the Gulls.
Peterborough Sports are a club currently on an uphill trajectory following their promotion to the sixth tier of English football last season.
They came 2nd in the Southern League Premier Division Central before overcoming the playoffs to book their place in the National League North.
They are nicknamed the Turbines which is a nod to their early history. They were originally called Brotherhoods Engineering Works as a factory side for a company founded by Peter Brotherhood. The company was famed for designing and manufacturing the first steam turbine engine in the world.
Peterborough Sports have lost each of their last two games coming into this cup tie but prior to that they have displayed good form.
Coming before losses to Scarborough and Buxton, they had been on a seven-game unbeaten run across all competitions.
In their maiden National League North campaign, the Turbines are sitting in a very respectable 8th place, just two points away from a place in the playoff places.
The Turbines last six
Buxton 3-0 Peterborough Sports
Scarborough 2-1 Peterborough Sports
Peterborough Sports 1-0 Farsley
Leamington 0-2 Peterborough Sports
Peterborough Sports 3-2 Chestnut
Hereford 0-1 Peterborough Sports
FA Trophy so far…
Whilst this maybe Oldham’s first FA Trophy bow, their opposition have already had to see off one team to make it into this stage.
They were drawn at home to National League South outfit Chestnut and overcame fellow sixth tier opposition 3-2.
They had to do it the hard way though, finding themselves two goals down by the time that the clock struck 12 minutes.
Watch out for
Jordan Nicholson is the top scorer for the Turbines this term.
Nicholson had been bang in form for his side with six goals in the opening eight games of the season, leaving him as top scorer in the division.
However, his season was struck by injury and he has only just started to make his return to the side.
He was back in the matchday squad for their FA Trophy game against Chestnut but his first minutes back on the pitch came from the subs bench as he came on in the 80th minute in their 1-0 win over Farsley Celtic.
He was also introduced from the bench against Scarborough before making his first start since injury layoff in their last game against Buxton.
He played the first 54 minutes for Sports before being substituted, gaining more key minutes in his recovery.
He will be eager to pick up from where he left off before injury and will view the FA Trophy game as an opportunity to get back amongst the goals.
In the dugout
Jimmy Dean is the man in the dugout for the visitors.
Dean has been in charge since 2015 and has been part of the great rise that the Turbines have enjoyed culminating in last season’s promotion to the National League North.
Latics are 4/5 favourites with Sky Bet to make their higher division status count when the welcome the Turbines to Boundary Park.
Peterborough Sports are 13/5 to complete a cup upset whilst 5/2 is the price for the game to end level after 90 minutes.
The referee is Matt Corlett, and he'll be assisted by Emmanuel Edet and Peter Brown, with George Eaton occupying the role of fourth official.
