The Opposition Guide: Oldham Athletic

5 February 2016

A Look At The Latics

Blackpool face Oldham Athletic two times in the next fortnight, with the Boundary Park showdown taking centre stage this weekend.

The Latics are the only side Blackpool are yet to face this season, so we take a look at tomorrow’s opposition. 

THE MANAGER

John Sheridan is back for another stint as Oldham Athletic manager, having replaced David Dunn in the position last month.

The 51-year-old, who made more than 140 league appearances as a midfielder at Boundary Park, was appointed Newport boss back in October and won five of his games in charge.

Sheridan, who first managed Oldham in 2006, guided Chesterfield to promotion in 2011 and steered Plymouth Argyle to the play-offs last season.

CURRENT FORM

The Latics picked up their first victory under returning boss John Sheridan against Shrewsbury Town last Tuesday, ending a previous run of nine games without one. 

The club remains in the League One relegation zone though and has seen a number of players depart this month, including Danny Philliskirk and Mark Yeates to Blackpool.

KEY MAN

The subject of transfer interest already last month, captain Liam Kelly has established himself as a real fans’ favourite at Boundary Park.

The tough tackling midfielder, a signing from Bristol City in 2014, has made 26 appearances this season and scored two goals.

TICKET PRICES

Tickets for the fixture at Boundary Park are priced at: 
• £22 for Adults 
• £12 for Over-65s 
• £10 for Under-16s 
• £5 for Under-12s 

Ambulant and wheelchair disabled tickets are priced at £12, with a carer ticket provided free of charge if required.
