Wellens Wants To Give Supporters Something To Shout About

23 October 2017

Richie Wellens wants supporters to replicate the atmosphere that they have created in recent games.

Oldham Athletic take on Bury at SportsDirect.com Park tomorrow evening, in Wellens's first home game since being appointed permanant manager. 

Since taking the team Latics are unbeaten in six, winning four and drawing two. 

"We’re in good form, people keep saying to me ‘you’ve picked 11 points up from five games and you’ve not moved anywhere’." Wellens said.

"We’ve not moved anywhere because we were rock bottom of the league and if we didn’t have those points we’d be still rooted to the bottom.

"This is a good chance now, if we can get three points we’ll move four places and then we can start looking to the game ahead.

"Any game in the league isn’t easy. Bury will be coming here thinking the same and they won’t want the gap between us and them to be so big.

"All the hard work that has gone, in the past three or four weeks, in climbing and clawing ourself back to the pack has been done, now this is the chance to edge away from it.

"Since I’ve took over the fans have been great and the atmosphere has been intense, I want the players to play in that and I want the fans to continue what they’re doing because they’ve been fabulous.

"The players will put on a performance which will give them something to shout about."

Oldham Athletic take on Bury at SportsDirect.com Park tomorrow, Tuesday, October 24, 7:45pm kick off.
