Bunn: "It's An Important Week"

20 August 2018

Oldham Athletic manager Frankie Bunn described the next two Sky Bet League Two fixtures as ‘important’ as Latics look to build on the win against Macclesfield Town.

Bunn believes his side must try and get points on the board in these next two away fixtures starting with the long trip to Yeovil Town on Tuesday night.

“It’s an important week for us, there's nine points available and we'll try and get as many as we can over the next few days.” Bunn said.

Latics will go down to Somerset with no fresh injury concerns after the squad came through unscarred from Saturday.

Bunn has many options within his squad if he feels changes may benefit the game but, he says the selection dilemma can only be good for the club.

“We're in good shape and we're getting people back, we've just got two long terms ones in (Cameron) Dummigan and (Ousmane) Fane so we've got a clean bill of health.” He commented.

“Touch wood you don't pick up any injuries but, there could be a little bit of fatigue here and there so it’s great to have more or less everybody back.”

Much of the spotlight could be on striker Sam Surridge as he returns to Huish Park following his successful loan spell last season.

Bunn is hopeful Surridge can build on his Man of the Match performance from Saturday.

“Like I said Saturday, for any striker to get off the mark is good because it sets you up for the remainder of the season.

“It’s always good to follow up a goal with another one so hopefully he can do that on Tuesday.”

Yeovil are coming into the game off the back of an impressive 4-0 win away at Notts County and Bunn knows his side cannot take them lightly.

“They will be organised, have good set plays and be an energetic bunch so it’s going to be a tough game.

“They're on the back of a really good result against Notts County so it’s going to be a challenge for us, but we expect nothing less from this division.”
