Match Previews

Latics vs. Notts County

31 December 2022

© Eddie Garvey

Latics begin the New Year by welcoming Notts County to Boundary Park.

David Unsworth’s side will be looking for an immediate response after defeat in the reverse fixture at Meadow Lane last time out where the hosts ran out 4-1 winners.

Notts County have been the benchmark for the whole of the National League during the first part of the campaign and currently boast a four-point lead at the top of the division.

The opposition

Notts County are in their fifth season in the National League following their relegation from the EFL in 2019.

They have finished in the play-offs spots every season since relegation but are yet to make it back into League Two.

The club is one of the oldest clubs in the English game and has an FA Cup amongst its honours, with success coming in 1894.


Form guide

Current front runners in the National League, the Magpies’ run of form is impressive to say the least.

The win against Latics on Boxing Day saw them extend their unbeaten run in the league to 15 games.

Their lead at the top of the pile remains at four points due to title rivals Wrexham also picking up maximum points in their festive fixture.

Watch out for

Latics fans will know all about Cedwyn Scott after he bagged a brace on Boxing Day.

Another summer signing for County from Gateshead, Scott has bagged 11 times in 23 appearances.

Similarly to his counterpart and the league’s top scorer Macauley Langstaff, Scott was a big part of the Gateshead side that secured promotion from the National League North last term, grabbing 24 goals in the process.

The 24-year old forward’s youth career began with Huddersfield Town but his first senior appearance came north of the border with Dundee.

Loan spells with Berwick Rangers and Forfar Athletic followed before he made the move back to England with non-league North east outfit Dunston UTS.

He then went to Hebburn Town where his impressive form earned him a trial at Newcastle United.

Following an unsuccessful trial, he would move back up the leagues to Carlisle United and then Gateshead.


In the dugout

Luke Williams is the man in charge of the visitors.

Williams took the top job at County in the summer, continuing the good work of Ian Burchnall, who left for Forest Green. He has had a big impact on proceedings with the club sat firmly on top of the table.

He has had various other jobs in football such as assistant at Swansea City and MK Dons as well as managing Brighton and Bristol City’s under 21 sides and Swindon Town’s first team on both permanent and interim basis.


County are again odds on favourites for the clash, priced at 4/11.

Latics are 6/1 to win at Boundary Park whilst the draw is 7/2.

Match officials

The referee is David Richardson, and he’ll be assisted by Danny Guest and Michael Bacon, with Gareth Thomas occupying the role of fourth official.

Latics 2-2 Notts County

1 January 2023

Oldham rescued a point following a hectic second-half at Boundary Park.

After a dull first-half, Notts County took the lead four minutes after the break.

Latics responded just moments later, when Nathan Sheron capitalised on Sam Slocombe’s mistake, before substitute Cedwyn Scott gave the away side the lead again.

Oldham pushed for another equaliser, and when Peter Clarke was fouled in the box, Joe Nuttall converted the penalty.

Notts County had almost all of the ball during opening minutes, but failed to do much with their possession.

Peter Clarke nearly got on the end of Mark Kitching’s cross, but he was inches away from making contact with the ball.

Aaron Nemane supplied a cross for Macaully Langstaff, who tapped home not long after the restart.

Just like the reverse fixture, Latics responded immediately, when Slocombe was caught in possession well outside his box, and Sheron put the ball into an empty net.

Cedwyn Scott came on after the equaliser, and put Luke Williams’ side back ahead, when Nemane found him in the box, getting his second assist of the game.

Benny Couto and Timmy Abraham came on with 30 minutes to go, as Latics looked to equalise once again.

P. Clarke was fouled following a free-kick which was won by Abraham, and the referee pointed to the spot.

Penalty specialist Joe Nuttall sent Slocombe the wrong way, scoring his second in as many games for Latics.

With ten minutes to go, Notts County piled the pressure on, Matty Palmer’s free-kick caused a scramble in the box, but Norman did well to claim the ball, getting clattered in the process.

Abraham had the chance to win it right at the death, Couto darted in the box, gave the ball to him, who hit the bar from close-range.

Oldham: Norman, J. Clarke, Hogan, Sheron, Tollitt (Rooney 74), Fondop (Abraham 67), Kitching, Peck (Couto 58), Chapman, P. Clarke, Nuttall.

Subs not used: Hudson, Reid

Attendance: 7,312 (1,249)
