MATCH PREVIEW: OLDHAM

29 November 2019

AFTER beating Salford City in the First Round the Brewers now travel to another League Two side, Oldham, in the Emirates FA Cup. Find out all the information you need with our match preview.

HEAD 2 HEAD

The last meeting between the two clubs was in the Carabao Cup in 2017 when the Brewers were 3-2 victors. The two clubs also had an epic FA Cup battle in 2002/2003 season with the Brewers then a non-league club and drawing away from home 2-2 despite being down to ten men before going out on penalties in the replay after a 2-2 draw at Eton Park.

BREWERS NEWS

The Brewers come into this fixture on the back of an excellent 2-1 win at Sunderland but the victory at the Stadium of Light came at a cost with more additions to the injury list.

Nathan Broadhead (hamstring) is expected to miss the FA Cup game. Richard Nartey (hamstring) and John Brayford (calf) are both doubts. Scotty Fraser is struggling with his hip and Stephen Quinn picked up some niggles despite playing 90 minutes on Tuesday. Reece Hutchinson may make the bench.

OLDHAM NEWS

Oldham are currently 20th in League Two after a difficult start to the season but are showing signs of improvement.

Having drawn against Northampton in the League they won away at Gateshead in the FA Cup and go into the Second Round against the Brewers on the back of a fine away win in League Two - Zak Mills' goal just before the break securing a 1-0 win at Newport County.

MATCH OFFICIALS

Tomorrow’s referee will be Andy Davies, assisted by Graeme Fyvie and Natalie Aspinall. Lewis Smith is the Fourth Official.

Mr Davies mainly officiates in the Championship and last took a Brewers game in February 2018 when we played Nottingham Forest and it ended in a 0-0 draw.

Ten of his 14 games this season have been in the Championship and he has handed out 41 yellow cards and two red cards so far.
