MATCH PREVIEW: Carlisle United vs. Oldham Athletic

27 September 2019

Oldham Athletic are back on the road as they travel up to Carlisle United tomorrow in the Sky Bet League Two fixture (3pm).

Latics recorded a well-earned victory over Morecambe last Saturday in Dino Maamria’s first game in charge as Head Coach and is looking forward to the trip to Carlisle.

“Every time I go there, I win, so I think going to Carlisle will be good this year.” He said.

“It's a beautiful pitch this time of the year, a big pitch which suits our players and I am really looking forward to it.

“Obviously, they're a good team, they have a good manager and it's always a tough place to go.

“I think we're going at the right time, we're in a brilliant position, so it's a good game to be going into.”

Maamria confirmed in his pre-match press conference that Gary Woods is back in training after missing Morecambe, but Filipe Morais is a doubt.

Other than that, Latics have a healthy squad travelling to Cumbria tomorrow.

Carlisle haven’t had the greatest start to the season as they sit in 18th position just one point above Latics.

They’ve lost their past two fixtures against Bradford City and Wolverhampton Wanderers U21s in the Leasing.com Trophy 3-1 and 4-2 respectively.

However, in the past four meetings between the sides, Latics have lost all four fixtures in various competitions.

Boxing Day 2018 was a day to forget which was the last visit to Carlisle, but the one previously in the league was back in 2014 where Latics came away with a 0-1 victory.

James Dayton grabbed the winner on that occasion.

Oldham Athletic are priced at 15/8 to beat Carlisle United.

Dom Shaw and Roy Butterworth will be on commentary on iFollow Latics for supporters who cannot make the game.
