bits

The goings on off the field have taken centre stage at Boundary Park this season with fan groups and representatives at the forefront as they stage protests against the current owner of the club.

Tennis balls and flares have been thrown onto the pitch, with encroachment during the home defeat against Colchester leading to calls for 'calm heads' as the protestations gathered momentum.

As recently as last month owner Abdallah Lemsagam said that he has not received any offers to buy the club and does not want to sell.

Last weekend's victory lifted the club out of the drop zone, but another slap on the wrist on Monday meant that it's likely that more restrcitions will be imposed, adding to the behind the scenes woes.

opposition

Following a rough start to the season the Latics have become much harder to beat in recent weeks, with last Saturday's 3-0 home win over Stevenage making it just one defeat in five league outings.

They looked to continue that trend with a home game against Walsall on Tuesday night, but it was back down to earth with a bump as the Saddlers secured a comfortable 3-1 win. Former Blue Hallam Hope was the Oldham scorer.

That stuttering start to the campaign we mentioned received a much needed lift when they registered their first three points courtesy of a barnstorming finish at Sutton. Looking to all intents and purposes to have lost the game, Piergianni levelled with two minutes left to go, and Junior Luamba nabbed the win with the last touch of the game.

Another inconsistent period followed, but just one goal conceded in the first three league outings this month suggests that resolve has been rediscovered, despite that midweek home disappointment on Tuesday night.

who watch

It'll be good to see Keith Curle, Colin West and Steve Collis again, but I'm sure they'll understand that we're hoping to send them home empty handed. 

Four goals in the last six games for midfielder Davis Keillor-Dunn have confirmed that he's got himself ticking over quite nicely and, when added to his combative and creative tendencies, that has made him our one to watch for this fixture.

The game at Brunton Park in February 2021 appeared to be going the way of the hosts with a Josh Kayode strike giving them a lead to take into the break. But it all went wrong in the last 20 minutes when a Marcus Hilssner penalty was complemented by late strikes from Dylan Bahamaboula and Carl Peirgianni.

Watch the highlights from that game here:

The Latics needed a late Zak Dearnley leveller in October 2020 when we went to Boundary Park for our league meeting. Aaron Hayden had given the away side the lead just after the break but Oldham struck back to secure a point with just 10 minutes left to go.

Watch the highlights from that game here:

The Latics bagged progression to the second round of the Carabao Cup when we went there in September 2020 at the first stage of that competition. First half goals came from Ben Garrity and Bobby Grant, with Conor McAleny sealing the deal with a late strike.

Our referee for this fixture is Mr Ben Speedie. He has taken charge of 13 games so far this season showing 37 yellow cards and one red.

He was at Brunton Park for our 3-1 Football League Trophy defeat to Fleetwood at the beginning of September 2020. It was an eventful night for Gime Toure, who both scored and was sent off, but the group game points went to the Cod Army thanks to goals from Callum Camps and Harvey Saunders (2). Joe Riley also went into the book.

Match Reports

MATCH REPORT: United 0 - 0 Latics

Report from the Saturday afternoon home game

23 October 2021

Caretaker boss Gav Skelton made two changes to the starting eleven for the visit of Oldham with Jack Armer and Corey Whelan back in for Morgan Feeney and Taylor Charters.

United pushed on from the kick off with Guy picking the ball up deep. He fed it to Mellish, who spotted Dickenson on the overlap. An early cross had Alessandra interested but Leutwiler was quickly off his line.

Howard showed safe hands at the other end when a popped effort from Couto came his way, and the Blues broke from his kick with Gibson in an advanced position. He exchanged passes with Alessandra, and Riley was suddenly behind the back line and with room to deliver. That was cut out at the front stick.

The Latics won a corner when Couto used pace to move onwards, but Bahamboula was wasteful as he drilled a wild effort into the side netting.

Another good home forage saw Clough pull off his man before trying to pick out Gibson. It went beyond, Armer recovered it, but his clipped cross was cleared. That was lobbed back to Dickenson by Guy, but he couldn't find room to shoot as he was closed down by the long legs of McGahey.

Alessandra then beat the offside trap against a high line to spark another attack. Piergianni ushered the pass behind as Dickenson steamed in.

Wonderful one-touch football saw Gibson and Alessandra unlock the door for Mellish, but another near post dink was intercepted before a final touch could be applied.

Alessandra drifted unnoticed and wide on the right and he dropped a shoulder before picking out Gibson, who had his back to goal close to the six-yard box. His cushioned touch was followed by a volley from Clough, but he couldn't keep it down and it sailed over the bar.

A roll-out from Howard to Riley sent the right back on the sprint, and a lovely crossfield pass put Dickenson in play. His feathered delivery was begging for a touch, but the away captain got there first.

Oldham had a great chance to register on 19 minutes when Vaughan came inside to help Couto. It was suddenly there to exploit but his 18-yard shot was miscued and it zipped into the Warwick.

United worked space in response as they switched play from right to left, and back again, but Mellish was rushed as he put his boot through it and the ball spun towards the corner flag.

Dickenson was a willing outlet once again as he utilised the space on the left wing, and he bided his time before sending it long. Gibson jumped high but he glanced the dipping ball past the post.

There was a scare for the hosts when a deep free kick was floated into the area. Piergianni tussled, but McDonald did enough to put him off. Howard gratefully picked up the loose pieces.

Carlisle came again and both Armer and Gibson tested with Alessandra challenging for their balls into the area. Oldham defended the corners that followed.

Tenacity from Gibson saw him rob possession from Couto just past the half hour, and a yellow card was shown as the United man was dragged to the floor. Clough ripped the 22-yarder over the wall but Leutwiler dived across to palm it away.

Armer was first to the corner from that, but his deft touch ricocheted away off Clarke. The second inswinger from Dickenson was going in until Callum Whelan got his boot in the way, and the third much deeper punt was controlled by Clough. He gently guided it back into the mix but neither Gibson or Alessandra could meet it.

The Cumbrians thought they'd done the trick on 38 minutes when Riley strolled into acres of room. The cross from him was a beauty, and Dickenson steered a net-bound volley low on the ground. McGahey made a vital block to turn it away just in the nick of time.

A fantastic one-handed save from Howard denied Keillor-Dunn a goal when his 25-yarder threatened to creep into the top corner. The rebound was tapped in by Bowden, but the flag was up with him having started his run from too deep.

Howard was in action again when Piergianni nodded a free kick from the half way line through bodies. Hope pounced with a fierce thunderbolt, but the keeper spread himself to make sure his goal was protected.

It was Hope who created the first chance of the second period when he dropped a shoulder before sending the ball low. McDonald put it behind. The corner was cleared as far as Bahamboula, and McDonald was there again to get himself in the way as the striker shaped to rifle it.

United used the Armer overlap at the other end as Dickenson and Mellish worked hard to keep the ball, and the left back found a great cross to meet the run from Clough. His touch took the ball across the face of goal but Leutwiler was able to marshall it on its way.

The game became a midfield battle, but Keillor-Dunn tried his luck from the halfway line when he spotted Howard on his penalty spot. The keeper scampered back to claw it to safety.

A run from Bahamboula earned the visitors a corner on 69 minutes, and Hope nodded that back as it came his way. Piergianni went for an elaborate scissor kick but it was never going to trouble the nets.

Midfielder Taylor Charters put Gibson into a dangerous area as the Blues looked to up their game, but his delivery on the run was dealt with.

Howard gathered when Bahamboula put his head down with 15 minutes left to play, with a direct sprint at the box. The shot had venom but the keeper was well placed.

Guy whisked a great cross from the right when he provided an option for Riley as the clock ticked down, but Young was bundled over by McGahey before he could put a head on it.

Keeper Mark Howard was rescued by Riley when he slipped as he cleared. Bahamboula was ready to gobble it up until the defender took the ball off his toe.

And it was Riley who created at the other end when he beat his man before curling it behind the back four. Young launched himself at it but he couldn't quite get there.

Abrahams and Young combined to carve a through late in the day, but McGahey was there once again to send the ball over when the delivery came in.

Two corners followed, but the orange shirts flooded their own area to keep the danger at bay. And Oldham had a chance in time added on from a training ground free kick routine. It eventually came to Piergianni, but he got his bearings wrong and he put his volley, which should have been a cross, straight at Howard.
