Preview: Alex Go To Face Paul Scholes' Oldham

15 February 2019

Crewe Alexandra head to Oldham Athletic looking to continue a run of fine form that sees them unbeaten in six games including the last three on the road.

Following on from last weekend's thriller at Macclesfield & the victory at home to Carlisle in midweek, Dave Artell's troops are all-set for the trip to the Latics.

It won't be an easy game though, with new Oldham Manager Paul Scholes set to take charge of his second match after a resounding 4-1 victory over Yeovil on Tuesday night.

The Latics currently sit two places higher than Crewe in the League Two table in 11th, though this is only on goal difference, with both sides & Tranmere too all on 45 points.

 

Date: Saturday 16 February 2019

Competition: Sky Bet League Two 

Venue: Boundary Park

Previous Meeting at Host Club: Oldham 1-0 Crewe (Apr 2016)

Referee: Graham Salisbury (P25, Y94, R3)

 

Crewe: The Alex have no fresh injury concerns ahead of the trip to Boundary Park, with James Jones still sidelined.

Perry Ng is ok to play having completed 90 minutes against Carlisle despite receiving a double kick-to-the-head from two Cumbrians players on Tuesday night.

The Alex are currently on their best away form of the season having won one and drawn two of the last three.

 

Oldham: The Latics have won their last two games, scoring seven goals in the process, with a 4-1 win over Yeovil & 3-0 sucess at Crawley. But previous to that, it was three straight defeats - all 2-1 - in league & cup.

The hosts have been bouyed by the recent arrival at Manchester United legend and Oldham fan Paul Scholes, and it will be down to Crewe to spoil the party at Boundary Park.
