Match Previews

Preview: Oldham Athletic (A)

4 October 2019

The Robins travel north to Oldham Athletic on Saturday looking to make it six matches unbeaten (kick-off: 3pm).

Cheltenham have collected 13 points from a possible 15 in the last five games and face an Oldham side under the new management of ex-Stevenage boss Dino Maamria this weekend.

The Latics are 20th in the division and go into the game on the back of a 1-0 defeat to Carlisle United last Saturday.

Currently third in the table, Cheltenham will be looking to maintain an excellent start to the new campaign.

Team news

Rohan Ince and Will Boyle both completed minutes in a reserve team win over Oxford United under-23s on Tuesday.

Josh Debayo, Max Sheaf and Reuben Reid miss the game as they look to recover from injuries.

Watch Michael Duff's Thursday press conference looking ahead to the game:

Opposition

In post for two games so far since he departed Stevenage and was quickly appointed at Oldham, Dino Maamria has won one and lost one with his new side so far.

He's spoken of wanting to take Oldham into the Championship long-term, but will be focused more on guiding the former Premier League side away from the relegation zone in the early part of this season.

They've picked up 10 points from 11 games so far and are five points clear of the drop zone.

Their goalkeeper Gary Woods is likely to miss the game which may mean Zeus de la Paz or Gregor Zabret may have to deputise in goal.

In Chris Eagles and David Wheater they have two former Premier League regulars to turn to for experience, though it's Congo international Christoper Missilou who has been their biggest threat in front of goal so far.

They may also turn to ex-Gloucester City and Cinderford Town forward Scott Wilson in their forward line, while 26-year-old Benin international Désiré Segbé Azankpo is another option up top.

Winger Jonny Smith is on loan from Bristol City and spent part of the 2016/17 campaign on loan at Cheltenham.

In total they have 12 different nationalities in their squad including Portugeuse midfielder Filipe Morais who has already played against the Robins this season for Crawley Town.

Previous meetings

Saturday's clash will be the 15th time the two teams have faced each other since Cheltenham first got into the Football League.

The record between the two is split with both sides having recorded victories over one another four times, and six previous draws.

Last season it ended in a 2-0 loss at Boundary Park but when the two teams met at the Jonny-Rocks in April it was goalless.

Report & highlights: Oldham Athletic 1-1 Robins

5 October 2019

Sponsored by

Ryan Broom's fifth goal of the season earned Cheltenham Town a share of the spoils after another entertaining match at Oldham Athletic this afternoon.

It perhaps says something about the progress under manager Michael Duff that the result was tinged with some disappointment at the final whistle.

They were not at their effervescent best before the interval and trailed to Filipe Morias' goal inside the opening 10 minutes before losing Charlie Raglan to a facial injury.

But they were much better in he second period and a double substitution by Duff tilted the game in the Robins' favour, culminating in the equaliser 19 minutes from time.

Both sides had their chances to take all the points but on the balance of play, a point apiece was about right and the result stretched Cheltenham's unbeaten run to six.

They now have a fortnight away from league action as a result of the postponement of the match against Newport County during next week's international break. However West Ham United Under-21s visit on the Jonny-Rocks Stadium on Tuesday in the Leasing.com Trophy.

Duff was forced into one change as a result of an training ground injury to Luke Varney. The striker was replaced by Alex Addai, who partnered Gavin Reilly in attack. Rohan Ince made a welcome return to the bench for the first time since the opening day match at Leyton Orient but was unused on the day.

The Robins made an uncertain start to the match despite having a good chance to take the lead in the opening exchanges. They were fortunate not to concede as early as the sixth minute after they struggled to clear their lines from an early corner. However moments later a low drive by Broom was parried into the path of Addai who almost scrambled home the loose ball from close range.

But the hosts were ahead after nine minutes through Morais, who had already come up against Duff's men when he played for Crawley Town at the People's Pension Stadium the previous month. The midfielder was set on his way with a lovely ball by former Robins loanee Jonny Smith to leave him with the chance to slide one past Flinders from the edge of the box.

Cheltenham suffered another setback on the half-hour when Charlie Raglan picked up a knock to the face which ended his game. Substitute Chris Clements was subsequently pressed into action in midfield with Sean Long covering on the right of central defence and Conor Thomas dropping back into the right wing-back role.

The Robins enjoyed a lot of possession in the first period and moved the ball well, getting into some promising positions in the wide areas but they were unable to make it tell before the break.

Both sides went on to create a handful of chances during a frenetic second half.

Scott Finders was called into a low save within seconds of the restart after an uncharacteristic error by Jacob Greaves handed Desire Segbe-Azankpo a shooting chance from 18 yards. The striker was afforded another chance eight minutes later but again the Cheltenham number one denied the striker, while the home side really should have scored shortly afterwards after some sloppy place by the Robins defenders.

Duff made two changes after 56 minutes, sending on Jonte Smith (for Gavin Reilly) and George Lloyd (Jake Doyle-Hayes) and the switch did the trick, handing his side the initiative.

First Conor Thomas saw an effort cleared off the line after some great work by Addai down the left. Then Ben Tozer vollied inches over from 20 yards. Substitute Smith drew a foul to present Chris Hussey with a free-kick from the edge of the box but his dinked effort was deflected narrowly wide. Tozer's drive from distance then shaved the right post.

The pressure paid off and the Robins were deservedly back on terms 19 minutes from time, Broom meeting Conor Thomas' delivery from the right with a brilliant finish from 12 yards to give Zeus De La Paz no chance.

Oldham had a golden chance to restore their lead with 11 minutes remaining, Tom Hamer glancing his header well wide of the target after a fantastic pinpoint ball by Mohammed Maouche from the right.

At the other Cheltenham created two similarly fantastic chances of their own to snatch a late win. Lloyd had a clear chance but he planted his header wide of the right post after more good work by Broom. Next Smith headed over after a pinpoint delivery by Long.

OLDHAM ATHLETIC (4-3-3): De La Paz; Hamer, Egert (Fage 90), Wheater, Iacovitti; Morais (Adams 76), Sylla, Missilou; Smith (Wilson 77), Maouche, Segbe-Azankpo. Subs not used: Zabret (c), Smith-Brown, Stott, Eagles.
