MATCH PREVIEW: Scunthorpe United vs. Oldham Athletic

17 September 2019

Oldham Athletic are back in action tonight as they take on Scunthorpe United at Sands Venue Stadium in a Sky Bet League Two fixture (7:45pm).

At the weekend, Latics picked up a point at Boundary Park in a 2-2 draw with Grimsby Town.

Christopher Missilou gave Latics the lead, and Filipe Morais made it two on his return to Boundary Park, but late goals from Jordan Cook and Ludvig Öhman snatched a point for the visitors.

Head Coach Laurent Banide was happy with the performance on the whole, but he wasn’t pleased with the way Latics saw out the game.

“I think we played well, and we played better, but the problem is the lack of concentration when you're winning.” He said.

“After 2-0 we must close out the game and we must start learning this quickly because we are always left frustrated.

“It's difficult when you are frustrated each game and I feel frustrated, but I think we should have scored a few more as well.”

Centre-back Tomas Egert has still not quite got full match sharpness, but Marvin Kokos is back in training.

Last weekend, Scunthorpe United picked up their first three points of the season in a 3-0 win over Morecambe at Sands Venue Stadium.

Goals from Jamie Proctor, Kevin van Veen and Matthew Lund were enough to secure the win.

The last time Oldham played Scunthorpe was on 3rd March 2018 in Sky Bet League One at The Sands Venue Stadium, where Latics won 2-0 thanks to goals from Patrick McEleney and Eoin Doyle.

Oldham Athletic are priced at 23/10 to beat Scunthorpe United.
