MATCH PREVIEW: Oldham Athletic vs. Crewe Alexandra

9 August 2019

Oldham Athletic are back at Boundary Park tomorrow as they take on Crewe Alexandra in Sky Bet League Two (3pm).

Oldham Athletic beat Liverpool U21’s 3-2 in the first game of the Leasing.com Trophy on Wednesday night.

Goals from Desire Segbe Azankpo, Alex Iacovitti and Jamie Stott were enough to see off the visitors.

Head Coach Laurent Banide took plenty of positives from the win in the Leasing.com Trophy.

“We showed great spirit and we arrived in the last minutes to win the game and it’s important and good for team morale with them working every day.

“The players worked hard and it’s important they did so we can rest better and create a good feeling around the dressing room.”

The impressive display in mid-week has given the Head Coach many options for his starting XI tomorrow, but he will definitely be without Tomas Egert and Marvin Kokos is still a doubt for Latics.

Desire Segbe Azankpo also faces a 50/50 chance of featuring.

Crewe Alexandra suffered a heavy 3-0 defeat on the opening day at home to Plymouth Argyle. New signing Callum McFadzean scored twice on his debut and Joel Grant also scored.

Last season, Latics took four points off the Railwaymen.

The first game in December 2018 ended in a 2-0 win at Gresty Road where Peter Clarke netted the goal of the season and Chris O’Grady added the second.

In the return fixture at Boundary Park, Crewe nicked a last-minute equaliser through George Ray after Callum Lang put Latics ahead.

Oldham Athletic are priced at 13/8 to beat Crewe Alexandra.
