Preview - Oldham Athletic

14 December 2012

SWINDON travel to Boundary Park on Saturday hoping to register their first League One away win since a 2-0 success at Walsall over a month ago.

THE VIEW

Manager Paolo Di Canio has warned his side that their trip to Boundary Park will be a stiff test ahead of the Christmas fixture schedule.

“Oldham is not an easy place to go and play, but there are no easy destinations in League One,” he said.

“Paul Dickov is a good manager and they have good organization. They are a typical side and they have some heavyweights in their team. 

“We have to be careful because Oldham will go into the game on the back of a positive moment with a win over Colchester last weekend.”

THE STORY SO FAR

Paul Dickov’s side only registered one win in the opening two months of the campaign before October saw an improvement in fortunes with the Latics winning three games and only losing once. Since drawing at Crawley at the end of October, they have won three and lost four of their last seven league games including a 2-0 win at Colchester last weekend.

LAST TIME OUT

Town’s last visit to Oldham in January 2011 ended in a 2-0 defeat for Danny Wilson’s side. Swindon have failed to record three points at Boundary Park since 2005 when, despite going a goal down on that February afteroon, goals from Sam Parkin and Grant Smith in nine second-half minutes secured a 2-1 win.
