Dunn: “I Personally Think This Will Be Our Toughest Game.”

1 October 2015

Interim manager David Dunn believes Gillingham will pose the sternest test to his Oldham Athletic players this weekend.

The Gills sit third in the Sky Bet League One table and have a 100% home record but Dunn hopes to end that record at 5pm Saturday afternoon. 

He said: "I personally think this will be our toughest game. That is not reading much into the Fleetwood game the other night, I’ve watched them a couple of times and they are a very dynamic and hardworking side who play as well so we will have to be right at it. 

"With their 100% record, we can hopefully create a few problems for them and get the result we all want. We have got to look after ourselves and one thing we will be looking to do is go down there and put a performance in and hopefully pick the points up.

"We are looking to get that win. If we get the win I think we will go on a good run. We have some winnable home games coming up after this game so hopefully we should put in a good performance this weekend and it will stand us in good stead to get them.”

Latics have scored two goals in their last two games, one from Dominic Poleon and the other from Sheffield United loanee Michael Higdon. “They are working well together,” Dunn said. 

"The big fella likes Dom in and around him. Dom is lively and it is a good option to have with his pace. He is the only real one in our side with that type of raw pace so it’s good he can play off Higgy up top.

"Likewise he can fill in down the sides as well so we are very positive down at the training ground. There are things we need to improve on but we are going in the right direction and I’m sure you can all see that.”

Asked whether the boss will return to playing action in the next coming weeks, the 35-year-old replied: “I’ve started training a little bit more so it’s something we are thinking of."
