MATCH PREVIEW: Oldham Athletic vs. Macclesfield Town

17 August 2018

Oldham Athletic host local rivals Macclesfield Town in Sky Bet League Two this Saturday at Boundary Park (3pm kick off).

Both teams are without with a win so far this season from their opening two games respectively.

Latics go into the game off the back of a positive performance midweek against a strong Derby County side.

Manager Frankie Bunn hopes his side can take that performance into tomorrow afternoon's fixture, but he knows it’ll be a tough test for his team.

“There are no straight forward games in this division, they have momentum in terms of they’ve had a successful campaign last year and we’ve got to be prepared for it.” He commented.

“They’ll be well organised, set plays will be part of their armoury and it'll be a local derby, so it'll be quite a feisty game.”

Macclesfield also had a positive result midweek as they managed to get past League One side Bradford City on penalties in the Carabao Cup.

However, the Silkmen have lost both league games thus far this season so they will be hoping to get their season off and running with a positive result.

Latics fans will see a familiar face line up against their side in the form of Danny Whitaker.

Whitaker spent two years at Boundary Park between 2008-2010 scoring 11 goals in 87 appearances.

Oldham are priced at 4/5 to win this Saturday with Sky Bet.
