PREVIEW: United face the Latics

Another weekend away day for the Blues

3 March 2022

The games continue to come thick and fast and we're off to Boundary Park this weekend for another important fixture.


Former Carlisle boss John Sheridan returned to take charge of the Latics for a sixth stint at the end of January - five years since his last spell with the club - with them cut adrift of safety by a whopping seven points at that time. 

The 57-year-old is no stranger to this type of situation at Boundary Park with him twice previously having guided the club to survival.

Another former Blue, Keith Curle, had been replaced by Selim Benachour, but positive results remained a tough ask as the club went on a run of defeats.

Sheridan was duly appinted and he was quick to turn to Tommy Wright for assistance - rekindling the management partnership they'd enjoyed at Brunton Park.


In the bottom two heading into this game, the Latics are actually one of the division's form teams with four draws and three wins from their last seven games.

Tuesday night took them to Crawley for the latest in that haul of stalemates, and it was a topsy turvy meeting as they took the lead through Hallam Hope, only to go behind to two quickfire strikes from Ash Nadesan. Christopher Missilou netted the leveller.

With games in hand over many of their closest rivals there's a renewed sense of optimism both on the terraces and on the pitch. 

They've started to turn chances into goals, which has been important, and that's been backed up by defensive displays much more solid in their nature.

United will have a large, loud and expectant visiting band of blues, so it should be an interesting contest.

who watch

Davis Keillor-Dunn is the obvious selection for this weekend.

He scored last Saturday against Colchester, taking his season tally to 12, and he's also a player who is heavily involved in much of what happens going forward.

Mobile, strong and athletic, he'll need to be guarded against.

As well as Shez and Tommy, it'll be really good to see Hallam Hope and Nicky Adams once again.

It was 0-0 at Brunton Park in October 2021. The sides created chances, but none were taken and the stalemate was the order of the day.

Watch the highlights from that game here:

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 game is Mr Sam Allison.

He has been in charge of 24 games so far this season showing 94 yellow cards and six reds.

We saw him at Leyton Orient for our 3-2 away win in May 2021. Jon Mellish, Lewis Alessandra and George Tanner bagged our goals, and Mellish joined Ethan Walker in the book with a yellow card.

He first officiated a game involving United in March 2021 when we made the short trip to The Globe Arena to face Morecambe. The hosts took a three-goal lead before Aaron Hayden bagged a late consolation, and Lewis Alessandra was the only Carlisle name taken on the day.


We have received an initial allocation of 577 tickets for this fixture, with more available if required.
