MATCH PREVIEW: Oldham Athletic vs. Morecambe

20 September 2019

Oldham Athletic are back in action tomorrow as they take on Morecambe Boundary Park in a Sky Bet League Two fixture (3pm).

In midweek, Latics picked up a point at Sands Venue Stadium in a 2-2 draw with Scunthorpe United.

Christopher Missilou gave Latics the lead, and Johan Branger-Engone, but late goals from Matty Lund and Kevin van Veen snatched a point for the hosts.

Laurent Banide was replaced by Dino Maamria yesterday and he will take charge of the team for tomorrow's game.

Maamria is excited to get going at the football club.

"I'm delighted to be at this football club, privilege and proud and I must deliver now." He said.

"We need to get the club back to the glory days and I think the first thing to do is to get everybody together, we can't do this without the town behind us and I think that's my biggest challenge.

"But to produce that I need to produce winning football and results."

Urko Vera is unavailable for selection due to injury, but the rest of the squad are fit.

Tomas Egert is now fit for selection if chosen.

During the week, Morecambe lost 1-0 at Globe Arena against Walsall, Stuart Sinclair's early goal proved to be the winning goal and leaves Morecambe 22nd in Sky Bet League Two.

The last time Oldham played the Shrimps was on 19th February 2019 in Sky Bet League Two at Boundary Park, where Latics were beaten 2-1 as Aaron Collins scored a late winner.

Oldham Athletic are priced at 17/20 to beat Morecambe.
