MATCH PREVIEW: Stevenage vs. Oldham Athletic

2 November 2018

Oldham Athletic are back in action tomorrow afternoon as they take on Stevenage at The Lamex Stadium in the Sky Bet League Two fixture (Kick off 3pm).

Latics will be looking to build on their superb comeback victory against Everton U21s on Tuesday night and get back to winning ways in the league.

Frankie Bunn says his side will stick to their guns when they travel to Stevenage on Saturday.

"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."

Rob Hunt and Jordan Lyden were rested on Tuesday night and are both expected to be involved in tomorrow’s game.

Latics still have Sam Surridge, Zeus De La Paz and Ousmane Fane out injured.

The hosts this weekend are currently sat two points outside the playoffs in eighth position and they come into the game after picking up four points in their last two games.

Stevenage are currently the lowest scorers of the teams in the top half of the division with 18 goals, but they have only conceded 14 which is only beaten by MK Dons and Mansfield Town.

They could be without Danny Newton and Paul Farman who are both doubts for the game.

The teams haven’t met since January 2014 where Latics came out 1-0 winners at Boundary Park thanks to a James Wesolowski winner.

The last trip to Stevenage was a more entertaining affair on the opening day of the 2013/14 season as Oldham ran out 3-4 winners.

A Jose Baxter brace and further goals from James Tarkowski and Christian Montano secured the win for Latics on the day.

Oldham Athletic are priced at 9/5 to beat Stevenage.

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