Bunn: "We Want To Go And Win Games"

1 November 2018

Oldham Athletic manager Frankie Bunn insists his side will stick to their guns away from home.

Latics travel to Stevenage on Saturday (November, 3) and the manager won't be drawn into playing for anything other than a win.

"We play our style, we'll have a go at anybody." He said.

"If the opposition have more of the ball, we still have the same intent, we want to go and win games.

"Like I've said we're not going to win all of them but we're trying to create our own identity and we'll stick to that."

During his press conference the manager confirmed that Sam Surridge is still unavailable but Jordan Lyden and Rob Hunt, who were rested for the mid-week game against Everton, are back in contention.

Bunn's side go into Saturday's game on the back of an impress comeback win over Everton U21s in the Checkatrade Trophy on Tuesday evening. 

Three goals in the second half turned the game around at Boundary Park, ensuring Latics took maximum points, securing qualification from the group stage. 

After the game the manager was disappointed with his side's first half performance but he says they have moved on from it now.

"There were harsh words at half time and they have responded to that." He commented.

"It was all put to bed this morning, we went through a few clips of things we weren't happy with from the game and we've drawn a line under that now and we move on to Saturday. 

This weekend's game is the first of six in November, a fixture build up that could prove important according to Bunn.

"We're getting around now to people being suspended, people on the verge of suspensions with the bookings." He said.

"Fitness of the players that aren't playing is important, if you take a couple of injuries along the way you have to change things, so all that comes into consideration and we look to move on. 

So many fixtures in one month provides a good opportunity to get higher up the Sky Bet League Two table, something witch Bunn is looking to achieve.

"It take a couple of games, back-to-back wins are vital in this league, it catapults you up and down, things are so tight ,two wins here put you back amongst the play-offs, it's an inconsistent league with inconsistent teams." He said

Oldham Athletic travel to Stevenage on Saturday, November 3, 3pm kick off.
