With Oldham’s home record at the moment, most fans will be glad about an away game and a day out in Devon.
Latics need the points back that they dropped last week at home to Brentford and a repeat of the Leyton Orient score would be very nice.
But while Latics need points to keep up with a push for the play offs, Exeter are looking for the points to get themselves away from the relegation zone.
Vital Quotes: Paul Dickov Talking To Official Site
‘This time last season everybody was saying we had made a fantastic start.
‘Not many realise we have exactly the same number of points as we did from our first 10 league games last season.
‘Everybody was talking about the Galacdickovs and going up after the best start for so many years.
‘Then we had 14 points from 10 matches, which is what we have now, so things aren’t that bad.’
