Midfielder Terry Dunfield is expecting a tough tie against Rotherham United tonight as he adapts to life back in England.
The Canadian, who joined Latics last month, outlined his intentions with the club. He said: "My goal at the moment is keeping Oldham in this division and we'll go from there.
"I bring a bit of everything to the squad. I like to work both ways, tackle hard and if I get the chance, I think I can nick a goal as well.
"We're confident in the changing room. Not only do we think we've got the ability, we're going to stick together and work our tails off every day."
Dunfield has made two appearances since joining the club and is hoping to get himself back in the manager's plans.
"Every player wants to be in the side. I guess that was the plan and I'm battling to get into it," admitted the 32-year-old.
"Oldham have some talented midfielders. I offer something different to the other ones and I look forward to getting back out there and playing again."
After joining from FC Toronto in Canada, the midfielder doesn't like to draw similarities from the divisions.
"It's difficult to compare both leagues," said Dunfield. "Every league is different but i enjoyed my three years out there and I'm happy to be back in English football."
