MATCH PREVIEW: Carlisle United vs. Oldham Athletic

26 December 2018

Oldham Athletic travel to Brunton Park today to take on Carlisle United in the Sky Bet League Two fixture (3pm).

Latics will be looking to bounce back from Saturday’s 2-3 defeat at home to Exeter City and maintain their push for a playoff spot.

Frankie Bunn’s men currently find themselves four points off the playoff places and one point behind today’s opponents Carlisle.

Andy Taylor returned from injury on Saturday and he will be pushing for a start after he recent lay off.

Dan Gardner, Jose Baxter, Zeus De La Paz, Jonathan Benteke and Ousmane Fane are all still recovering.

Carlisle are currently on a two-game winning run in the league after an impressive 4-0 victory over high flyers Colchester United and then a 2-3 away win at Crawley Town on Saturday.

Latics fans will be no stranger to current Cumbrians manager John Sheridan who will be determined to get one over his former club when the sides met.

It is likely that Carlisle will not change much in terms of their team selection after back-to-back wins, but with the Christmas fixtures coming thick and fast there may be some surprises.

The sides met earlier in the season at Boundary Park with Carlisle running out 1-3 winners on the day with Ishmael Miller grabbing Latics’ goal.

Carlisle have won the last three times the teams have met and our last win at Brunton Park came in April 2014.

Latics ran out 0-1 winners that day thanks to a strike from midfielder James Dayton.

Oldham Athletic are priced at 6/4 to beat Carlisle United.

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