Match Previews

Aldershot Town vs. Latics

28 January 2023

© Eddie Garvey

Latics are looking to build on the midweek success with a trip to Hampshire to take on Aldershot Town.

Last time out, a 2-0 win over York City saw David Unsworth’s men move further away from the relegation zone.

Goals from Josef Yarney and Timmy Abraham ensured Oldham overcame the Minstermen at Boundary Park.

Form Guide

Latics’ opposition come into this fixture on a decent run of form that has seen them go unbeaten in four across all competitions, winning three of these.

It has been a much welcomed return to form for the Shots who had lost the four fixtures prior to this run.

They currently occupy a comfortable 14th place in the National League, six points ahead of Latics. However, Oldham do have three games in on hand on their opponents.

In addition, wins against Welling and Leiston mean that they are still in the FA Trophy. They have been drawn against fellow National League side Dorking Wanderers in the next round of the competition.


The Shots’ last six

Maidstone United 0-3 Aldershot Town

Bromley 2-2 Aldershot Town

Solihull Moors 1-2 Aldershot Town

Aldershot Town 4-1 Leiston (FA Trophy)

Aldershot Town 0-2 Dagenham and Redbridge

Aldershot Town 0-3 Notts County


When the clubs met earlier on this season, there was late drama at Boundary Park.

Dan Gardner had given Latics the lead in the 20th minute but the lead lasted less than 10 minutes with Justin Amaluzor restoring parity.

The game looked to be heading for a draw until Hallam Hope scored a dramatic 95th minute winner for Latics.

It was the first time that Oldham had came up against the current club in Aldershot but this is there record against Aldershot FC prior to the club folding:

Meetings: 16

Latics wins: 7

Aldershot FC wins: 7

Draws: 2


Watch out for

Inih Effiong will be chomping at the bit following netting a hat-trick in the Shots’ last outing at Maidstone.

That took his tally to 13 for the season, making him the joint fifth top scorer in the division.

He has already matched his total from the whole of last season whilst playing for Woking.

He made the move to Shots in pre-season following a 15th placed finish with Woking.

His other experience at this level came with Dover Athletic. In two seasons on the South coast, he managed a respectable 25 goals in 80 games, winning a move to League Two side Stevenage.


In the dugout

Ross McNeilly is the man in the dugout for the hosts.

The 38-year old was put in temporary charge at the Recreation Ground following the departure of the previous manager Mark Molesley but five wins in his opening eight games saw him given the job on a more permanent basis till at least the end of the current season.

The 38-year-old boss had been manager of the academy side at Aldershot for almost five years prior to getting the top job.


Sky Bet have the Shots as favourites, priced at 5/4.

Latics are 9/5 to make it three wins on the bounce for the first time all season. 23/10 is available for the draw.

Match officials

The referee is Gary Parsons, and he’ll be assisted by Conall Bartlett and Alex Bradley, with Joshua Langley-Fineing occupying the role of fourth official.

As always, we will endeavour to ensure confirmation of the line-up is published as soon as possible on social media.

Match Reports

Aldershot Town 1-1 Latics

28 January 2023

Latics continued their unbeaten run in the league, with a 1-1 draw with Aldershot Town.

6’4” Inih Effiong opened the scoring with a sweet curling shot just before the half-hour mark.

Immediately after the second-half started, the ball fell to Mike Fondop 25 yards outside the box, before he hit it on the half-volley, beating Ashby-Hammond with ease.

Aldershot were awarded a penalty, but Norman made easy work of saving Effiong’s effort from the spot.

Both sides looked to find a winner as the game came to a close, but both goalkeepers did well to keep the score level.

There were an exchange of chances early on in the game, Fondop went close with a header from a free-kick and Hutchinson was played through, but fluffed his chance with a poor touch.

Ben Tollitt cut in from the left and looked for the far corner, but Ashby-Hammond dived and caught his shot.

Aldershot went ahead, perhaps a tad against the run of play, when Effiong found the far corner via the post.

Mark Shelton had the opportunity to equalise moments later, but he shanked his shot from just inside the box.

Effiong looked to double his tally, and the home side’s advantage with a half-volley, but it went over the bar and didn’t trouble Norman.

Latics went in at half-time a goal down.

Fondop did what Fondop does, score screams, to pull Oldham level.

The ball fell nicely to him outside the box, and he found the top left corner with a brilliant half-volley.

Aldershot were given a golden opportunity to take the lead again, when the referee judged that Effiong was pulled down inside the box, but penalty saving expert Norman, saved his effort from the spot.

Rooney came on in place of Chapman with 25 minutes to play, as Unsworth looked to switch up the midfield.

Tollitt whipped in a wide free-kick, which Liam Hogan found with his head, which Ashby-Hammond remarkably managed to save.

Rooney and Fondop were on the same wavelength as they made a series of one-two to move into the box, but Mike’s shot was blocked by the Aldershot defence.

Nuttall could have won it at the end, Tollitt’s low driven cross found Joe, but he notched it wide of the post.

Latics left The Rec with a point.

Oldham: Norman, J. Clarke, Hogan, Sheron, Shelton, Tollitt, Fondop, Kitching, Chapman (Rooney, 66), Yarney, Nuttall.

Attendance: 2,157 (356)
