Oldham Athletic Vs Boreham Wood
Saturday 2nd December 2023, 3.00pm
Boundary Park, Vanarama National League
The Wood travel up to Boundary Park to take on Oldham Athletic who will be the first team that we have already played in the league. The two sides met back in August in a 0-0 draw. Since then Oldham have had a change in manager with David Unsworth departing on the 17th September after a 7 winless game run. Since then they’ve had an upward turn in form and now sit in 10th, 5 points off the play-offs with Micky Mellon at the helm.
Oldham Athletic– L-D-W-W-L
It was a very contrasting week last time out for the latics as they travelled to the Hive to take on Barnet on Wednesday 22nd November, where they came away 4-1 winners thanks to a brace from James Norwood and a goal each from Hallam Hope and Mike Fondop in a rampant display. However just a few days later they hosted Ebbsfleet but were on the wrong side of a 4-1 defeat after Ebbsfleet scored three late goals to come away with a comfortable three points.
Prior to the Barnet game the Latics came away 1-0 winners against Woking thanks to a James Norwood goal
