MATCH PREVIEW: Cambridge United vs. Oldham Athletic

8 March 2019

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

Latics are four games without a win, but manager Paul Scholes believes that side will be full of confidence going into the game against Cambridge.

“Every game is going to be difficult in this league and we need to be ready, but if we are then we have a chance of winning the game.” He said.

“We've had a good luck at them, their forms similar to ours which is quite patchy.

“They had a really good win last Saturday away at Grimsby, so they'll be confident of getting a result.

“But we are as well because I think other than the result Saturday we played really well, so hopefully we can take that into the game and come away with the three points.”

Scholes confirmed at his press conference that Giles Coke, Harry Robinson and Chinedu Uche were all available for the trip to Cambridge.

They join long-term absentees Dan Gardner and Ousmane Fane on the treatment table.

The Us are currently sat nine points above the relegation places and come into the game after an impressive away win at Grimsby Town last Saturday.

Cambridge will be without Liam O’Neil for the game tomorrow with strikers Jabo Ibehre and Rushian Hepburn-Murphy to be assessed ahead of the fixtures.

In the reverse fixture earlier in the season, Latics ran out 3-1 winners thanks to goals from George Edmundson, Jordan Lyden and Callum Lang.

Our last win at Cambridge came in 1999 in a 2-3 victory, but our last visit finished as a 1-1 draw in 2001.

Oldham Athletic are priced at 17/10 to beat Cambridge United tomorrow.

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