MATCH PREVIEW: Oldham Athletic vs. MK Dons

13 February 2018

Oldham Athletic are back in home action this evening as they host MK Dons (7.45pm kick off).

Latics head into the game with confidence after winning their first league game in 2018 last week and picking up a respectable point on the road on Saturday.

A wonder strike from Cameron Dummigan in the 12th minute and a late header from Aaron Amadi-Holloway sealed a 2-1 win over Bradford City.

On Saturday, Latics travelled to Ewood Park and hung on for a point, despite leading 0-2 at the half time break.

Two goals from Duckens Nazon, his first a superb solo effort, was cancelled out in the second half as Blackburn’s Charlie Mulgrew and Adam Armstrong pulled Rovers level.

Wilfried Moimbe received his second booking and his marching orders with 20 minutes of the game but Latics held on for a valuable point.

Athletic still sit in the relegation places but they know a win tonight could potentially take them out of them.

MK Dons come into the game on the back of a 1-2 defeat at home to Portsmouth on Saturday.

Ike Ugbo gave the Dons the lead in the first half but two goals in the final 10 minutes saw them fall to defeat and they are still searching for their first win under new manager Dan Micciche.

In the manager’s three games in charge so far this season, he has lost them all, including an FA Cup defeat at home to League Two side Coventry City.

MK Dons currently sit three points behind Latics in the table and a win for Richie Wellens’ men would take them further away from their relegation rivals.

They currently sit 22nd in the league and have picked up 30 points from their 30 game so far this season.

Speaking ahead of the game, Wellens said: “I think they will try and play football against us.

“They are renowned for that even when Karl Robinson was there and managers have followed that on.

“It’s a big stadium and they want to use that but a new manager has come in to League One football following managing the youth lads at England.

“He will have a different philosophy because League One is totally different to youth football so I will have a look at that.”

Sky Bet have listed Athletic as favourites for tonight’s game at evens whilst the hosts are 11/4.
