Oldham Athletic vs. Swindon Town

Boundary Park



NEXT UP: Oldham Athletic

Charlton Athletic at The Valley live on Sky Sports was supposed to result in total humiliation. It didn't! Now Town face the tough task of emulating the win by taking on Paul Dickov's Oldham Athletic

Vital Quotes:

Talking to the official Swindon Town website Danny Wilson said the 'We've seen it too many times this season when we've had terrific performances one week and not followed them up the next... So it's crucially important that we have that in the back of our minds (at Oldham).'

Oldham Athletic Team News:

On-loan Leeds United Aidy White is doubtful with an ankle problem while fellow loanee Jean-Yves M'Voto could also miss out.

Manchester United goalkeeper Ben Amos was brought in on loan this week.

Player to watch: Chris Taylor

Local lad has defied the rumours by sticking by the club he supports instead of moving to a bigger club.

Had a torrid time at the County Ground a few years ago when the Town faithful got to him a little bit! The truth is that without doubt Taylor, on his day, is one of the best players in League One.

Swindon Town Team News:

Danny Wilson is unlikely to make many changes from the side that humbled Charlton Athletic and put the final nail on Phil Parkinson's proverbial coffin.

However, Jonathan Douglas might just come in after returning from what feels like the longest 3 match suspension in history! Michael Timlin could make way for the Town captain.

David Ball is available for the final time as his loan stint from Manchester City comes to an end. He's not expected to come back.

Alan Sheehan and David Lucas could return to the bench.

Player to watch: Charlie Austin

All eyes are on him.

Match Facts & Stats

Town took four points from Oldham last season.

At Boundary Park in August 2009 a late, late cross-shot from Keiran Lee gave the Latics a point. Alex Marrow put Athletic ahead but late goals from Jon-Paul McGovern and Billy Paynter almost won it for Swindon before Lee's freak goal.

However, Town won 4-2 at the County Ground with a late first half brace Billy Payner and goals from Charlie Austin and Danny Ward. Joe Colbeck and Jason Price scored for Athletic.

Town's first home fixture in the Premier League was against Oldham. The away side won 1-0 thanks to last gasp winner from Paul Bernard.

Among the players to have played from both sides:

Don Heath
Paul Edwards
Abe Rosenthal
Hasney Aljofree
Steve Mildenhall
Kevin Kilcline
Alan Sheehan

Match Prediction:


Next Fixtures:

Town welcome Yeovil Town to the County Ground.
