MATCH PREVIEW: Bradford City vs. Oldham Athletic

16 August 2019

Oldham Athletic are back in action tomorrow as they take on Bradford City at the Northern Commercials Stadium in a Sky Bet League Two fixture (3pm).

During the week, Latics suffered defeat in the first round of the Carabao Cup against Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park.

Latics took the lead through a brilliant strike from Gevaro Nepomuceno but the host pulled themselves lead when Bradley Dack found the back of the net.

Latics regained the lead when captain Mohamed Maouche placed his shot into the top corner. But Rovers scored in the 91st through Stewart Downing and in the 94th minute Joe Rothwell netted to send Blackburn to the second round.

Head Coach Laurent Banide was left frustrated with the last ten minutes of the game against the Championship side, who scored two goals in stoppage time to come from behind and secure their place in the next round.

“It’s difficult, but it’s football and we must accept it. We didn’t play well in the last ten minutes and we conceded two goals and against a big team, we paid the price.

“Our level is not enough at the moment and I’m very sad for the supporters because they have been with us and we must fight until the end to get a result.”

Latics will be without the injured duo Tomas Egert and Marvin Kokos but it’s still unclear whether David Wheater is fit enough to play.

Bradford City have drawn their first two Sky Bet League Two games of the 2019/20 season. And the Bantams were beaten 4-0 at the Northern Commercials Stadium against Preston North End during the week in the first round of the Carabao Cup.

Oldham Athletic are priced at 10/3 to beat Bradford City.
