Currently sat 23rd in Sky Bet League Two, Oldham have struggled for results so far this campaign, winning just two games, drawing two and losing seven. The Latics are yet to win at home, with their only two victories in the league coming away from home. After being appointed Manager in March of this year, Keith Curle aims to take his side away from the relegation zone and into a comfortable position in League Two to secure safety.
However, The Latics haven’t always been in the lower end of the English Football League. In 1992, Oldham were one of the founding members of the Premier League, spending two years in the top tier of English Football before their relegation. The Greater Manchester side spent twenty-one seasons in the third tier before their relegation to Sky Bet League Two in 2018.
This Saturday’s game will be the twelfth time the two sides have met competitively. In eleven previous contests, Boro have come out on top five times, with the sides drawing three times and Oldham winning three. Stevenage possess a 45% win-rate against the Latics.
In the sides’ most recent clash, Stevenage clinched a 1-0 victory away from home through a first-half Scott Cuthbert header. Alex Revell’s men will be looking to build on an impressive record against Oldham, whilst the Latics look to get their first win against Stevenage since January 2014.
