IRON TEAM NEWS

Iron Interim manager Tony Daws revealed post-Torquay that all players who featured made it through the game unscathed.

Aiden Marsh, Liam Feeney & Jordan Hallam (hamstrings) will all miss out through injuries, as will Colin Daniel (tendonitis).

THE OPPOSITION

The Latics were edged out 2-1 at home against Welsh-side Wrexham on Saturday, falling short in the 90+5th minute after leading until the 85th.

In July, local businessman Frank Rothwell purchased the football club from former owner Abdallah Lemsagam, following relegation to the fifth tier alongside the Iron. The club became the first former Premier League team to drop into non-league since its creation in 1992.

Oldham sit 17th in the Vanarama National League after 11 games, with all three victories so far this season coming on home turf. Former manager John Sheridan stepped down in September, with David Unsworth challenged of the task to take the club forward.
