Latics make the trip South to take on Maidstone United in the National League.
David Unsworth’s men come into the game on the back of a difficult run that has seen them lose each of their last four outings across all competitions.
Last time out, Oldham fell to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Barnet at Boundary Park.
This is United’s first season back in the National League.
Last season, they sealed promotion from the National League South, courtesy of clinching the league title.
Prior to that, they had spent three seasons in the fifth tier, with their highest finish being 14th place but a rock bottom finish in the 2018/19 season sealed their fate.
It is the highest level that they have ever competed at with the club also playing in leagues such as the Kent County leagues and the Isthmian League.
They are a relatively new club as they were only founded in 1992 following the forced bankruptcy of the previous club in the town.
Last time out, the Stones claimed a much needed league victory as they won 2-0 away at Scunthorpe United.
This put an end to a miserable run of form that had seen them win none of their previous 13 games.
This run includes a disappointing exit in the FA Cup as well. The fourth qualification round saw them depart the competition at the hands of lower league side Needham Market.
Maidstone are currently one point and one place above Latics, however Oldham do have two games in hand on their opposition.

Watch out for
There is no one with more than four goals to their name for the Stones so far this term.
Top scoring so far is Jack Barham, who was on target in their big 2-0 win over Scunthorpe at the weekend.
He came off the bench for the final part of the game and got the all important goal, opening the scoresheet and sending them on the way to pick up three points.
The 26-year-old forward will be looking to add to his tally and kick on when his side welcome Latics to Gallagher Stadium.
In the dugout
Hakan Hayrettin is the man in the dugout for the hosts.
He has been manager at Gallagher Stadium since April 2020 and was able to lead the club back into the National League at the first time of asking, clinching the National League South title.
Elsewhere, the 52-year-old has managed Waltham Forest, Thurrock, Grays Atheltic and Braintree Town.
The hosts are favourites to claim back to back wins at 11/8.
Latics are at 17/10 to win a much needed three points whilst the draw is 23/10.
