Latics vs. Yeovil Town

22 October 2022

Latics welcome Yeovil Town to Boundary Park for an important National League fixture this weekend.

Last time out Latics ensured qualification to the first round of the FA Cup after defeating National League North side Chester on penalties in the fourth qualification round replay at the Deva stadium.

David Unsworth will be hoping to get a taste of his first league success as Oldham look to rise the table.

The opposition

This the Glovers fourth season in the National League following their relegation from Sky Bet League Two in the 2018/19 season when their stay in the Football League came to an end with a 24th-placed finish.

Their best league finish was in their first season back in non league when they came fourth. Since then they have finished 16th and 12th.

Form guide

Yeovil come into the game on a sticky run of form which was summed up by their last outing when they slipped out of the FA Cup by losing their replay game against Taunton.

However, they did win their last league outing, a 1-0 triumph against Solihull Moors but before that they had won none of their last seven.

It has the making of being an even game of football as both sides come into this game level on points with 13 on the board after 13 games, the Glovers are ahead on goal difference.



Meetings: 20

Latics wins: 6

Yeovil Town wins: 8

Draws: 6

The last time that the two clubs met was back in February 2019.

There was plenty media attention on the game as Paul Scholes made a winning start to his time as Oldham manager.

Latics won 4-1 as the goals were scored by Jose Baxter, Callum Lang, Mohamad Maouche and Christopher Missilou.

In the dugout

Chris Hargreaves is the man in the dugout for the visitors.

This is the 50-year-old’s second job in management after his spell with Torquay United in 2014/15. He was unable to stop United falling out of the football league but he was able to oversee an upturn in performances.

He was appointed at Yeovil in May 2022 and awarded a two-year contract. Elsewhere he has been a coach at Bristol Rovers.

Latics are slight favourites for the clash at Boundary Park, with Sky Bet pricing Unsworth’s men at 13/10 to claim a much needed three points.

Yeovil Town are 9/5 to leave the North west with maximum points.

11/5 is available for the draw.

Match officials

The referee is Greg Rollason, and he’ll be assisted by Jake Allsopp and Emmanuel Edet, with OliverNoonan occupying the role of fourth official.

As always, we will endeavour to ensure confirmation of the line-up is published as soon as possible on social media.

However, supporters should note that team sheets in the National League are not exchanged until an hour before kick-off. This is 15 minutes later than in the EFL and as a result, the line-up is likely to be published slightly later than in previous seasons.
