MATCH PREVIEW: Lincoln City vs. Oldham Athletic

12 March 2019

Oldham Athletic are back in action tonight as they take on league leaders Lincoln City in the Sky Bet League Two fixture tonight (7:45pm).

Paul Scholes’ men will be looking to get back to winning ways as they come into the game off the back of two back-to-back draws.

Assistant manager Mick Priest says that Latics need to be on their game tonight if they are to take anything away from Sincil Bank.

“We've just got to try and play our game, we know we're going to be in for a tough game with them, they're physical like most of the teams in the league but they do it better than most teams in the league with just a little bit of quality.” He said.

"We know what we're up against, if we turn up and we're expecting anything less than a tough game we're going to have some problems.”

Latics will most likely have the same squad that travelled down to Cambridge United on Saturday, but Johan Branger-Engone is a doubt after picking up a knock.

Our opponents Lincoln have been leading the way at the top of the Sky Bet League Two table for much of the season.

They sit two points clear of second place Bury with their game in hand against Latics tonight.

The Imps will be without Club Captain Lee Frecklington for tonight’s game, with Jason Shackell also a doubt for the home side.

The sides played out a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture at Boundary Park in November, with Mohamed Maouche finding the net for Latics who were unlucky not to take all three points on the night.

The last time Latics went to Sincil Bank they were beaten 3-2 in the Emirates FA Cup back in December 2016.

However, our last trip in the league saw Latics produce a 1-3 victory back in September 1998.

Oldham Athletic are priced at 3/1 to beat Lincoln City tonight.

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