MATCH PREVIEW: Oldham Athletic vs. Grimsby Town

13 September 2019

Oldham Athletic are back in action tomorrow as they take on Grimsby Town at Boundary Park in the Sky Bet League Two fixture (3pm).

Last weekend, Latics picked up a point away against Plymouth Argyle in a 2-2 draw.

Johan Branger-Engone gave Latics the lead, but goals from Scott Wootton and Joel Grant put the Pilgrims ahead.

David Wheater came to the rescue for Oldham in the 77th minute with a header to equalise.

Head Coach Laurent Banide admits that Grimsby Town will be a tough test but remains focused on his own side.

"To be honest I just want to focus on my own team, I've seen Grimsby play in the last two games and they're a good team and play nice football." He said.

“They'll be a difficult opponent, but we have confidence that we can beat them, and we have been working hard."

Centre-back Tomas Egert is still a few weeks away from full match sharpness, whilst forward Marvin Kokos remains sidelined with an injury.

Last weekend, Grimsby Town suffered at 2-0 defeat to Crewe Alexandra at Blundell Park. Goals from Tom Lowery and Charlie Kirk were enough to take all three points.

During the week, the Mariners drew 0-0 with Macclesfield Town but won 5-4 on penalties in the Carabao Cup to book a place in the third round against Chelsea.

The last time Oldham played Grimsby was on 30th March 2019 in Sky Bet League Two at Boundary Park, where Latics won 2-0 thanks to goals from Callum Lang and Chris O'Grady.

Oldham Athletic are priced at 17/10 to beat Grimsby Town.
