A struggling Millwall side travel to Boundary Park this weekend in the hope that they can put some distance between themselves and the drop zone.
Shez told the official site that there will be ‘twists and turns’ before the end of the season and has sent out the message that even though more of his players are on the specialist table than the training ground, a play-off place is still achieveable.
Oldham Athletic Team News:
Last week at Luton, Latics failed to name a full squad and ended up only having 4 players on the bench. The situation has not been helped by the suspension to the solid Reuben Hazell. It is likely that John Thompson will start in his place after recovering from an injury.
Both Lewis Alessandra and Mark Allott are pushing to be fit for the game but it could all be down to the last minute.
Player to watch: Richard O’Donnell
This will be the first time that the Boundary Park home support will see the loanee in action and after watching 3 go past him away at Luton he will want to show that he can keep a clean sheet with. Keeping a clean sheet will also be down to his defence who will need to up their games after last week.
Millwall Team News:
The Lions are going through injury problems also as they find 4 midfielders on the sidelines for this game:
Player to watch: Lewis Grabban
Grabban had a spell on loan with Latic last season but failed to push Warney and P**ter out of the side. When he played though, he showed pace that could trouble Thomo if he is not 100% match fit.
