HEAD COACH COMMENTS:

“I’ve been quick to get the lads to focus on this game at Oldham because losing this would take the edge off from those wins. This is a big one in our season, we think this is a team where we would be in and around at the start of the season.

“These are the big games really, because if they win they get two points and would move level with us again. We think we’ve had a good start but lose on Sunday and they join us on four points. It’s a big game because we can turn what’s been a good start into a fantastic one. We can then go into concentrating on the cup for a week.

“Oldham are a decent side, he’s changed the style of play from what they had before. They are largely using the same squad that got them promoted. At the weekend they borrowed five players so a third of the team wasn’t theirs. However like us they’ll do whatever they can to get the wins. They pass the ball well and have good attacking shape.

“They have good second-rowers Langtree and Bridge who can play anywhere on the pitch and would get in to nearly every side in this division. They are very good players, so we’ll need to be on it to handle them.”
