Yeovil are looking to put the double over the Latics this weekend, having defeated Oldham earlier this season 2-0, but they won’t go easily, with the Latics putting in some solid performances as of late, and getting some good results in tough games. Yeovil slipped up earlier this week at Bristol, losing 3-0. They also lost their manager Russel Slade, and gained Yeovil’s very own Terry Skiverton, who will be looking for three points in his first game in charge and lead them away from the ever looming relegation zone, which they sit 8 points above currently.
Oldham gaff John Sheridan speaks with the official site about the game ‘They did a good job on us at Boundary Park earlier on in the season and they’ve had some good results of late, barring Tuesday. Obviously they lost at Bristol but they haven’t been conceding goals and I don’t know whether what’s been going on at the club will affect them tomorrow’.
Yeovil Team News:
Yeovil aren’t too bad at the moment, their only worry is Darren Way who is out for a good while, other than that no other problems seem to there.
Player to watch: Paul Warne
former Oldham player Paul Warne will looking for another goal against his old club, having already scored in the game at Boundary Park, being one of Yeovil’s top scorers with 5 goals so far, 4 of which have come in the league he will want to add a few more today, as his team will want to get as many points as possible to keep them selves away from relegation into League 2 and he knows he will have to be on top form to do so.
Oldham Team News:
Winger Chris Taylor returns from a one match ban, along with goalkeeper Greg Fleming and will find himself in a battle to play between the sticks with the on loan Dane, Jan Budtz. Their certainly could be a battle for most positions, as the lads who played in last weekends game will be looking to keep their place in the team after beating Northampton 2-1. Wolfy is still out, but will be seeing a specialist pretty soon, Mark Crossley is still out for a while with his back injury and Paul Black is also side lined with an ankle injury.
Player to watch: Dean Windass
There will defintely be some grafting done against Yeovil, hopefully on loan Hull striker, Dean Windass can keep up the good work from the games he’s played and add to the 200 league goals he already has. He’s been the key in most of Oldham’s chances, goals and has made some spectacular contributions, with some devine flicks and passes. He is always dangerous in front of goal as he has already proved, lets just hope he has his shooting boots on against Yeovil this weekend.
Match Facts & Stats

Yeovil have scored 15 and have conceded 19 at home. Their current points tally stands at 36 with 30 games played.
