MATCH PREVIEW: Oldham Athletic vs. Barnsley

4 September 2018

Oldham Athletic take on Sky Bet League One side Barnsley this evening at Boundary Pa in the opening game of the Checkatrade Trophy (7:30pm).

The teams haven’t met since the 2015/16 campaign in which Barnsley came out 2-1 winners at Oakwell.

Latics come into the game on a run of five games unbeaten after Sam Surridge’s late winner handed Oldham the three points.

It was back-to-back wins for Frankie Bunn’s side and they face a Barnsley squad who have yet to taste defeat in the league, but Bunn is hoping to keep the momentum going.

“It's a competition we want to do well in, we've got a bit of momentum in the league now and we want that to continue.” He said.

“We'll see how we recover and see who's available and select a team who will hopefully do well on Tuesday night.

“The togetherness in the squad is fantastic at the minute and it may be time for some people to be given a chance.”

A new German duo is in charge in South Yorkshire outfit in the shape of Daniel Stendel and Andreas Winkler.

They have so far won four of their opening six fixtures in their first taste of managemnet in England, drawing the other two meaning they currently sit third in the table.

Oldham Athletic are priced at 14/5 to beat Barnsley tomorrow evening in the Checkatrade Trophy.
