BIG MATCH PREVIEW: IRON v OLDHAM ATHLETIC

18 November 2016

United return to Glanford Park this Saturday, when they take on Oldham Athletic.

After three matches on the road, it’s back to home comforts for Graham Alexander’s men, who currently sit five points clear at the top of the League One table.

The Latics are one of only two sides to take all three points off the Iron so far this season, and the hosts won’t be wanting a repeat of the 2-0 result at SportsDirect.com Park back in October.



Alexander revealed David Mirfin will be out for a period of time, with a foot injury he sustained in last weekend’s victory over Coventry City.

The Iron boss says it’s disappointing to see the defender ruled out, but challenged other members of his squad to fill the void left by the 31-year-old.



United slipped to only their second defeat of the season when they visited Oldham last month.

Both sides were evenly matched for the majority of the first half, up until the 42nd minute, when Freddie Ladapo squeezed his shot home to give the hosts the lead.

The home side then doubled their lead with virtually the last kick of the opening period, as Lee Erwin curled the ball past Joe Anyon from just inside the penalty area.

Alexander’s side looked for a response after the break, but Oldham held firm, and got the victory.
