MATCH PREVIEW: Oldham Athletic vs. Crawley Town

31 August 2018

Oldham Athletic return to Boundary Park as they host Crawley Town tomorrow afternoon in the Sky Bet League Two (Kick off 3pm).

The teams haven’t met since the 2014/15 season which saw a 1-1 draw at Boundary Park in that campaign.

Latics go into the game on a run of four games unbeaten after the 2-0 victory over Morecambe FC last Saturday.

It was announced earlier today that Crawley will be without manager Harry Kewell after he moved on from the club with senior players Filipe Morais and Jimmy Smith taking charge.

However, Frankie Bunn says that his side will take no notice of what’s happening in West Sussex.

“I don't think it'll affect us, we're preparing to play Crawley whether Harry’s there or not, so it hasn’t affected any of our plans at all.

“Knowing Harry, who was a good footballer, I should imagine his teams like to play, so I expect much of that.”

Despite being without a manager for Saturday’s fixture, Crawley come into the game off the back of two strong results.

They came from 2-0 down to draw with Swindon Town before an Ollie Palmer last-minute winner secured a 3-2 victory over Bury last time out.

Palmer is joint top goal scorer in the division and two former Latics players will be returning to Boundary Park in the shape of Morais and Dominic Poleon.

Oldham are priced at 23/20 to claim the three points against Crawley.

Mike Leyland and Roy Butterworth will be on commentary on iFollow Latics for supporters who cannot make the game.
