MATCH PREVIEW: Oldham Athletic vs. Grimsby Town

29 March 2019

Oldham Athletic are back in action in the Sky Bet League Two fixture tomorrow against Grimsby Town (3pm).

Pete Wild takes charge of Latics for the first time after being appointed Head Coach until the end of the season and his first focus was solely on Grimsby.

“It's another step and something that is a really exciting challenge for me.” He said.

“Obviously, it was caretaker last time and to be announced as Head Coach of the club that I've grown up supporting is a fantastic opportunity for me and the staff.

“Everything we've done on the training ground is relating to what we'll do against Grimsby on Saturday and that's how we'll take things come 3pm.”

Latics are currently seven games without a win with Wild hoping to end the season on a high from the last nine fixtures.

He’ll have to do it without the injured Dan Gardner and Dapo Afolayan who is a doubt for Saturday.

Jose Baxter also starts the first of a three-game ban for his red card against Lincoln City.

Grimsby are currently on a run of six games without a win, but they have drawn their last two including a 0-0 with Bury.

They will be without Elliot Embleton and Jordan Cook who are out with long term injuries.

Alex Whitmore, Danny Collins and Harry Cardwell all have small knocks, and will face late fitness tests ahead of the game.

With Oldham priced at 17/20 to beat Grimsby Town.

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