Oldham Athletic are back in action tomorrow as they take on Plymouth Argyle at Home Park in a Sky Bet League Two fixture (3pm).
Last weekend, Latics suffered a 1-0 defeat at home to Colchester United, Franke Nouble’s goal just before half-time was enough to pick up all three points.
Head Coach Laurent Banide was frustrated with the game against Colchester but claims his side are improving over time.
“We were frustrated after the game against Colchester United. We played better and we need to push a level and continue." He said.
“The team worked well and step-by-step we will start improving. We had better statistics with the ball, with passing, with crossing and with shooting and step-by-step we saw the team improve and enter a new phase.”
Full-back Ashley Smith-Brown is unavailable for selection for Latics as his parent club is Plymouth Argyle and centre-back Tomas Egert is still a few weeks away from full match sharpness, whilst forward Marvin Kokos remains sidelined with an injury.
Banide also confirmed Chris Eagles will be assessed ahead of the game.
Plymouth were beaten 3-1 at the weekend against Northampton Town which meant that Argyle slipped down to 6th in Sky Bet League Two.
In midweek, Ryan Lowe’s side beat Bristol Rovers in the Leasing.com Trophy, the game finished 1-1 at Home Park but Plymouth won 5-4 on penalties.
The last time Latics played Plymouth was on 27th January 2018 in Sky Bet League One at Boundary Park. The Pilgrims won the game 2-1.
Oldham Athletic are priced at 18/5 to beat Plymouth Argyle.
