MATCH PREVIEW: Cambridge United vs. Oldham Athletic

23 August 2019

Oldham Athletic are back on the road as they take on Cambridge United in the Sky Bet League Two fixture tomorrow (3pm).

Latics go into the game having picked up their first point of the season on Tuesday night and Head Coach Laurent Banide says his side must build on that point.

“We need to continue, it's important to gain some results for the confidence of the team.” He said.

“It's important to push the team because we can do more and we can do better.

“Step by step we must rise to a better level, but we're trying, and I think we can bring out the potential in this team.”

Both Mohammed Maouche and Christopher Missilou have been back in training over the past few days and the Head Coach says they are fit to be involved this weekend.

Tomas Egert is still in his recovery stage and is expected to be another few weeks off and Marvin Kokos is still out with an injury problem.

Our opponents Cambridge have made a decent start to the season having won two and drawn two of their opening league fixtures to leave the U’s sitting pretty in third position.

They’ve also had a penalty shootout win against Sky Bet Championship side Brentford in the First round of the Carabao Cup.

Full-back Kyle Knoyle will be unavailable for Cambridge after picking up a shoulder injury in their 0-0 draw with Newport County.

Former Latics player Jabo Ibhere is out with concussion and Dan Jones is doubtful for the game.

Last season the teams played out a 1-1 draw at the Abbey Stadium as Jevani Brown cancelled out a Harrison Dunk own goal.

Our last win at Cambridge came in 1999 in a 2-3 victory thanks to goals from Mark Allot, Neil Adams and Lee Duxbury.

Oldham Athletic are priced at 9/4 to beat Cambridge United tomorrow.

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