David Artell is expecting another tough away assignment at Boundary Park this weekend but he believes his Crewe Alexandra are more than capable of erasing our 3-0 defeat on the opening day defeat to Plymouth Argyle with a positive away result.
Artell went head-to-head with Paul Scholes last season with the game ending 1-1 but the former Manchester United legend didn’t stick around for too long and his replacement is Frenchman Laurent Banide.
Banide, 51, is a former player with Marsille and Monaco and has a wealth of coaching experience from around the globe, but mostly from the Middle East.
Ahead of our first away game of the season this weekend, Artell told us: “It is another new regime at Oldham. The owner is still there but they now have a foreign manager and I am sure there is not that much known about him in this country but we have had Oldham watched and I’ve watched them.
“They have good players and some that are probably a bit unknown but we will be going there looking to play to our own strengths.
“It is always a tough place to go but we are capable of going there and getting a result.”
