Match Previews

Preview: Oldham (H)

5 November 2018

Notts County host Oldham Athletic on Tuesday night in the rearranged Sky Bet League Two fixture.

The Magpies are looking for their first win since the start of October, after a late Tom Pope equaliser meant they were forced to settle for a 2-2 draw with Port Vale on Saturday.

In the last league match under the lights at Meadow Lane, Notts put in one of their best performances of the campaign, beating Harry Kewell’s former team Crawley Town 3-1.

They will be hoping for a similar display with the Latics in town, a side that have won just one of their last eight games in League Two.

Oldham have lost four of their last five fixtures and slipped to 17th in the table after making a positive start to the season.

Both sides will be looking for victory as they attempt to turn recent form around.

Kewell says…

“I’m expecting a good game. Both sides are going through a difficult spell and it’s a game that we will both feel we can win.

“We know that they have two strikers who are aggressive and up for the fight, while their wingers are tricky and see a lot of the ball.

“They try to get a lot of crosses in and utilise their set pieces so we will need to maintain our concentration.

“We have to win the midfield battle and that should enable us to get a result which builds on the positives that I’ve taken from recent weeks.”

Oldham boss Frankie Bunn says…

"If you speak to any coach, they will say they like a clear week running up to a game but British football is what it is and the players love playing.

"As coaches, sometimes we’d like a bit more time to prepare for a game but this is what we have been dealt.

"Harry likes his sides to pass the ball so I expect Notts to be expansive and looking to play attractive football.

“Like us, they’re a big club in transition and I'm sure Harry will need time to get his ideas across."

Team news

Kewell says Richard Duffy felt no pain following his brief appearance at Port Vale on Saturday and is likely to be included in the squad again.

Jon Stead missed the weekend’s game in Staffordshire through injury and will face a late fitness test ahead of Tuesday night.

Oldham aren’t expected to make many changes from their 3-2 defeat at Stevenage so Ishmael Miller and Jonathan Benteke are likely to be their main goal threats.

We’ve met before

Oldham haven’t won at Meadow Lane since 2011, with the pick of the contests a 3-2 Notts win in 2013 when Danny Haynes, Yoann Arquin and Callum McGregor got the Magpies' goals.

The Latics took the points in the last meeting of the two sides when George Elokobi, Amari Morgan-Smith and former Notts striker Jonathan Forte netted the goals in a 3-0 result at Boundary Park in 2015.

Notts 0-0 Oldham

Back-to-back draws for Magpies

6 November 2018

Notts County drew 0-0 with Oldham Athletic to claim a hard-earned point at Meadow Lane.

It needed a strong defensive performance from the Magpies, who came under sustained pressure at times, but it could have been so different had Enzio Boldewijn not hit the post with a golden opportunity at the death.

Harry Kewell made two changes to the side that drew at Port Vale three days earlier.

In came Shaun Brisley and Nathan Thomas, replacing the bench-bound Matt Tootle and Kane Hemmings, who was absent from the squad.

That move saw Brisley slot in alongside Elliott Ward at centre back, with Jamie Turley at right back. Thomas took Hemmings' left-wing berth.

The two sides traded tentatve blows in the early exchanges before Ross Fitzsimons was called on to make an excellent save on 16 minutes.

Ishmael Miller was the man denied, the former Forest forward capitalising on a lucky break of the ball to burst into the area. He sent a low effort towards goal but Fitzsimons got down to his left brilliantly to push the ball behind.

Notts' hearts were in their mouths again minutes later when Rob Hunt whipped a dangerous low cross into the middle. Thankfully for the Magpies, no-one was on hand to turn it home.

Shortly afterwards, it was Oldham's turn to survive a scare as Thomas' driven free-kick from deep sailed over everyone and into Turley's path at the back post. The defender slid in to meet the ball but could only volley it over from close range.

But the Latics were looking the more likely team to open the scoring and saw a number of excellent chances go begging before half-time arrived.

Two of them came in quick succession, Turley clearing Andy Taylor's header off the line moments before Fitzsimons made another brilliant save from a Peter Clarke header.

The keeper then had to position himself well at his near post to prevent Miller's low cross reaching an unmarked team-mate in the middle.

Rob Milsom claimed the half's final shot, sending a left-footed 25-yarder over before the sides returned to the dressing rooms level.

There were no changes for either side at the break and Oldham picked up where they left off after the restart, Lang heading narrowly wide before stinging Fitzsimons' palms with a sweetly struck effort from a narrow angle moments later.

Samuel Edmundson then sent a free header over the bar from Dan Gardner's corner as the visitors continued their search for the elusive opener.

Kewell's first change came on the hour mark when Richard Duffy replaced Dennis in a move which saw Boldewijn move up front and Brisley shift into central midfield.

It did little to stem Oldham's immediate flow, however, as Jonathan Benteke spurned another good opportunity - blazing wide under pressure from Cedric Evina having been picked out by Miller.

But the switch almost paid off shortly afterwards when Boldewijn held the ball up following Fitzsimons' long clearance, taking it into the area but seeing his shot saved by Daniel Iversen.

Oldham soon regained dominance, however, and were ruing Turley once again when he blocked Benteke's shot before, minutes later, producing a superb last-ditch tackle to deny Miller.

The onslaught continued as Gardner saw a curling effort well tipped over by Fitzsimons and, from the resultant corner, Clarke sliced an effort wide from the edge of the area.

Elliott Hewitt was booked for an over-zealous challenge on Benteke shortly before two minutes of added time were indicated.

And Boldewijn had a brilliant chance to snatch victory for his side at the death when Ward's looping header dropped for the Dutchman in the box, but he could only strike the post.
