MATCH PREVIEW: Swindon Town vs. Oldham Athletic

28 September 2018

Oldham Athletic will look to return to winning ways when they take on Swindon Town at The County Ground in the Sky Bet League Two fixture tomorrow afternoon (3pm).

Latics are on level points with The Robins but sit a couple of places above this weekend’s opponents due to a superior goal difference.

Frankie Bunn’s side will be going into this game off the back of a tremendous comeback against Colchester United last Saturday.

Swindon have ex-Premier League manager Phil Brown at the helm, so Bunn knows his side will be in for a stern test.

“We just take each game as it comes, so we're not looking at the points each club has got we just want to win every game we play and extend on our current away record we have.” He said.

“We know that Swindon have got a good home record, they score lots of goals, but they also concede a few as well so on paper it should be an entertaining game.”

Latics are set to have the same squad that was involved in the draw with Colchester, however Giles Coke could return after coming through another week of training.

There was a departure at the club this week as defender Jamie Stott left the club on an initial one-month loan to Stockport County.

The hosts for this weekend’s fixture are coming into the game off the back of an impressive 0-3 win away at Yeovil Town.

Michael Doherty is top scorer for Swindon with five goals so far this season with Elijah Adebayo closely behind with four.

However, Swindon have also conceded the most goals from the teams that currently occupy the top half of the table, so Bunn’s men will look to exploit those defensive frailties.

The County Ground has been a successful venue for Oldham in recent times, Latics haven’t lost there in their previous six visits.

The last trip to Swindon in February 2017 finished 0-0, but in the previous season Latics came out 1-2 winners thanks to a late strike from Danny Philliskirk after Nicky Ajose had cancelled out a Mike Jones opener.

Oldham are priced at 13/8 to claim the three points against Swindon.

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