MATCH PREVIEW: Oldham Athletic vs. Northampton Town

3 May 2019

Oldham Athletic are back at Boundary Park for the final game of the Sky Bet League Two season against Northampton Town.

Both sides are going to end the season in a mid-table finish, but Head Coach Pete Wild wants to end the season on a high for the Latics supporters.

“I'm really looking forward to the game and we want to finish on a positive note.” He said.

“I want to thank the fans personally and on behalf of the staff, thank you for sticking with us and supporting us.

“We'll get the opportunity to have a walk round and thank them Saturday, so it'd be great if they could all come down for the game.”

Latics have a few injury concerns with Zak Dearnley returning to his parent club Manchester United after suffering an injury.

Peter Clarke and George Edmundson both came off in the loss at Newport County on Tuesday night and Wild confirmed they are both major doubts for Saturday.

Dan Gardner is also missing with a long-term injury and Wild said that a few more may be assessed before the game which include Harry Robinson.

Northampton come into the game having not won in their past five fixtures and they may rotate the squad with a few youngsters involved.

In the reverse fixture, Latics lost 2-1 at the PTS Academy Stadium with Rob Hunt getting on the scoresheet that day.

However, last time the sides met at Boundary Park, Latics ran out 5-1 winners thanks to goals from Tope Obadeyi, Craig Davies, Gevaro Nepomuceno and a brace from Jack Byrne.

Oldham Athletic are priced at 23/20 to beat Northampton Town.
