Oldham Athletic Preview vs Lincoln City (H)

Oldham Athletic return home this Tuesday after a successful win last time they were there against Cambridge United 3-1 and coming off the back of a 1-1 draw with Tranmere away in which the home side left it late to equalise.

In terms of injury doubts, the usual players remain out of contention with Zeus de la Paz, Jose Baxter, Ousmane Fane all out probably until early December-January at least.

They face a Lincoln City side on a roll though who currently sit in first position in the league after a 1-1 draw with Mansfield.

They have only lost three times all season and so could be tough opposition for the Latics who are midtable currently.

Sam Surridge coming back towards full fitness though with another load of minutes under his belt on Saturday could help their cause.

He was the main catalyst for their brilliance earlier on this season and it will be hoped that this is the same going into the midway point of the season.

Like usual though, Frankie Bunn will likely keep with the same lineup or so that he tinkers with ever so slightly depending on injuries.

This is a back four of Andy Taylor, George Edmundson, Peter Clarke and Rob Hunt with Daniel Iversen in the Latics goal.

The midfield has been the makeshift one of Jordan Lyden, Cameron Dummigan, Johan Branger-Engone and Dan Gardner as of late with Gevaro Nepomuceno coming in instead of Dummigan against Tranmere.

Up front is usually Ishmael Miller and Callum Lang with Surridge not yet fully fit to take his place from the start.

Both strikers who are currently involved have been in good form though so Surridge could have a job knocking them out of the team when he is fully fit.

Predicted XI:

Iversen, Taylor, Edmundson, Clarke, Hunt, Gardner, Branger-Engone, Lyden, Nepomuceno, Lang, Miller

Prediction:

Lincoln 2-0 Oldham

Can see The Imps winning away from home in this one given their league position as of late but Oldham could spring a surprise win. Their home form has been nothing really to shout about though and as a result it could be a long night for Frankie’s men.
