Not the first time we’ve done a match preview for this game… as these teams meet again the Latics need to keep up their unbeaten run, and pull another win out of the bag against the Rovers tomorrow, three points are vital at this time, so they’ll be no room for slip ups at Boundary park.
Shez tells the official web site that only three points will do ‘maximum points are a must as they should be for any home game, draws keep the unbeaten run going but we need to win games’.
Oldham Team News:
The same injury list plagues the manager as Captain Conundrum Gregan is still on the bench with an Achilles injury, Liddell is still out with a similar injury, and keeper Pogs is also on the sidelines. This will not dishearten the manager as he still has a good selection of players to choose from, and as the team is on a unbeaten run they will be full of confidence for their battle with the Rovers.
Player to watch: Chris Taylor
Chris Taylor will be in the spotlight for Oldham after his recent performances and goal against Bournemouth, he will be full of hope for this game, as we already know his attacking prowess will be key to the Latics game.
Doncaster Team News:
The Rovers are without Paul Heffernan, Gareth Roberts and Graeme Lee, but some good news for Doncaster is that Brian Stock and Sean McDaid are having late fitness tests after recovering from injury, also Jason Price has been in training all week so will be available for selection.
Player to watch: Richie Wellens
The ex Oldham man Richie Wellens will be a definite eye catcher in this game as the Latics already know his skills to dictate in midfield will be a strong part of Doncaster’s attack.
