PREVIEW | Oldham Athletic v Yeovil Town

Glovers make the trip to Greater Manchester

12 February 2019

PPAUK

The Glovers make the midweek trip to Oldham Athletic for a Sky Bet League Two encounter with added interest.

The hosts appointed former Manchester United and England legend Paul Scholes as manager on Monday, with his first match of the helm coming against the green and whites.

Darren Way's side will look to spoil the 44-year-old's first game in management and put an end to a four-game losing streak at the same time. 

Town set off for Greater Manchester off the back of a 3-1 defeat at home to Grimsby on Saturday and will look to improve on back-to-back 1-0 losses from their last two away outings. 

Searching for a winning formula, they'll be unable to call upon Craig Alcock who'll serve his one-match ban and Tom James who'll sit out the second of a four-game suspension. 

Joining the duo on the sidelines will be Omar Sowunmi (ankle), Sessi D'Almeida (shoulder) and Josh Grant (ankle).

The Latics currently sit 14th in the table with 12 points more than the Glovers, fresh from a 3-0 win over Crawley last time out. 

Head-to-head
Tuesday night will be the 20th meeting between the two sides.

Town boast eight wins to Oldham's five and will look to repeat the dominant display they produced on their last visit to Boundary Park. 

In December 2014, goals from Stephen Arthurworrey, Simon Gillett, Sam Hoskins and Kieffer Moore secured an emphatic victory in League One.

Officials
Thomas Bramall will be the man in the middle at Boundary Park. 

In what will be his 35th match of the campaign, it'll be his third involving the green and whites having overseen the 1-0 away victories at both Grimsby and Carlisle United. 

He'll be assisted by Ken Haycock and Lee Freeman with Sebastian Stockbridge acting as fourth official.

REPORT | Oldham Athletic 4-1 Yeovil Town

Town slump to defeat

12 February 2019

PPAUK

On the road at Boundary Park, the Glovers couldn't halt their run of defeats by suffering a 4-1 defeat in Sky Bet League Two.

Looking to spoil Paul Scholes' first match in charge of the Latics, the visitors almost took an early lead when Jake Gray hit the woodwork.

Evolving into a frustrating half for the hosts who were unable to breakdown an organised looking Town side, they managed to break the deadlock in first-half stoppage time through Jose Baxter.

Carrying their momentum into the second half Callum Lang soon doubled their lead before Bevis Mugabi reduced the arrears just three minutes later. 

The defender's goal setup a potentially nervy ending but a quickfire double from Mohamed Maouche and Christopher Missilou just before full-time confirmed defeat for the visitors.

Darren Way made four changes for the midweek trip, with two forced due to injury and suspension. 

In came Bevis Mugabi and Alex Pattison for Gary Warren (hamstring) and Craig Alcock (suspended), whilst Yoann Arquin and Francois Zoko completed the alterations in a switch to 4-4-2 as Rhys Browne and Tristan Abrahams dropped out.

A raucous atmosphere after Scholes' introduction to the home supporters prior to kick-off, it quickly turned to concern after a nasty collision between Tom Hamer and Alex Fisher just seconds into the contest.

Lengthy treatment followed for both but Town's top scorer was able to continue whilst the hosts were soon forced to replace the injured full-back. 

Slightly subdued by the early swap the Latics were almost deflated further after 14 minutes when Gray's low drive from the edge of the box cannoned back off the post with Daniel Iversen only able to watch in goal.

Struggling to find a foothold in the match the Glovers continued to frustrate the team in blue, who only boasted a long range strike from Johan Branger-Engone that failed to test Stuart Nelson from the first half-an-hour of action.

With misty rain arriving to add to the plummeting temperature things began to hot up on the pitch as the break approached. 

Zoko tested Iversen from the angle following a smart counter-attack orchestrated by Pattison, whilst at the other end Oldham started to find their feet as Callum Lang fired a strike high and wide as pressure began to mount.

The much-changed Yeovil back four continued to hold Scholes' side at arm's length and looked to have made it to the halfway stage unscathed before a moment of magic from the hosts. 

Gevaro Nepomuceno's clever backheel released Branger-Engone into space and his ball found Baxter who did the rest with a curling shot from 12 yards to open the scoring with the last act of the half.

Leaving it late in the opening 45 minutes to come to life, the game began in breathless fashion after the restart with a second goal for the Latics. 

Nepomuceno's inch-perfect cross allowed Lang to head home on 51 minutes and dent any hopes of a Yeovil comeback. 

However, with many still celebrating the second goal the Glovers responded immediately as Mugabi, up from the back for a deep free-kick, extended a leg to stab the ball into the back of the net from six yards and reignite the contest.

Now an end-to-end affair, Nelson was on hand to deny Oldham a quick-fire third when he was down low to his left to parry away Baxter's low drive. 

With the tempo finally subsiding with 25 minutes to go, the green and whites introduced Browne and Courtney Duffus in search of an equaliser as the latter returned to face the club he left at the end of January. 

Doing well to bring back an air of frustration amongst the home supporters, Town set up a tense final 10 minutes for the hosts with just the one-goal advantage. 

However, into the final few minutes a defensive collapse saw potential elation turn to disappointment as Oldham bagged two in two minutes.

Maouche ensured the three points would be staying in Greater Manchester with an unstoppage long-range strike before an instant fourth courtesy of Missilou after the Glovers failed to clear their lines.

Stunned by the late strikes a closely contested match suddenly became a rout as the visitors suffered defeat once more.
