Experienced front-man Chris O’Grady reckons Latics will be there or thereabouts come the end of the season writes the Oldham Chronicle’s Simon Smedley.
He should know – the 32-year-old has played at all levels of the Football League, in successful sides as well as struggling ones.
Nottingham-born O’Grady re-joined Latics in the summer – 10 years since he previously played for the club - following a successful trial spell.
That came after he was released by Chesterfield, who dropped out of the League so agonisingly last season.
The start to this term might not have been too spectacular so far, but Latics are making decent progress and O’Grady believes the encouraging momentum will continue.
“I’d like to think we’ll be challenging this season,” said O’Grady.
“The quality of players is good – we’re definitely capable of doing well.
“A lot of it is adapting to the fact that Oldham are in League Two now.
“It’s not always dependent on the quality of football you play or the quality of your players, a lot of what this league is about, is grinding out results.
“That’s what the so-called good teams do.”
For the rest of O'Grady's interview and much more, make sure you pick up a match day programme for this Saturday's fixture at home to Crawley Town tomorrow, Saturday, September 1 (3pm kick off).
Programmes only cost £3 and can be purchased from stands around the ground.

The EFL annual general meeting, which took place over the summer, saw clubs vote to remove the obligation to print a programme at every home game.
Despite this change in the league rules, Latics will continue to produce a 64-page programme for every home league game and a reduced edition for cup matches - but it needs your backing.
While our club partners continue to support us, and fans still buy the programme in sufficient numbers, we will continue to produce a programme for the foreseeable future.
