A Brief History: Oldham Athletic

17 September 2020

Jim Steele

Stevenage face Oldham Athletic on Saturday 19th September 2020 for just the 10th time in history...

The two clubs are level-pegging heading into the contest, with 3 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses apiece.

The first meeting between the two sides came on Saturday 10th September 2011 in League One as Mark Roberts opened the scoring at Boundary Park in the 4th minute before Shefti Kuqi equalised 15 minutes later, leading to a 1-1 draw.

Boro won the next two games 1-0, before losing three in a row including a memorable opening day 4-3 defeat in 2013. After going down 3-1 in the match, goals from Greg Tansey and Filipe Morais levelled matters before Jose Baxter's late penalty won the contest for the Latics.

Five and a half years later Stevenage came out the victors in another entertaining clash, as goals from Kurtis Guthrie and Danny Newton helped reverse a 2-1 deficit to win 3-2 at The Lamex Stadium.

The last two meetings between the sides have been less eventful, a 1-1 draw at Boundary Park in 2019 and a goalless draw at The Lamex Stadium in January 2020.

A win for either side on Saturday will see the victor nudge ahead in the all-time standings but more importantly, pick up a first win of the 2020/21 season.
