Posh v Oldham: Match Preview

17 August 2013

Posh host Oldham Athletic at London Road in Skybet League One action on Saturday afternoon (3pm).

Peterborough United entertain Oldham Athletic on Saturday afternoon at London Road (3pm) looking to make it three victories out of three in the Skybet League One.

After a 1-0 win over Swindon Town and a 4-2 success over Notts County at Meadow Lane, Darren Ferguson's men will be looking to continue their excellent start to the campaign against Lee Johnson's Latics.

Johnson is the youngest manager in the Football League and is the son of former Posh boss Gary Johnson. Oldham are set to include former Posh midfielder James Wesolowski in their squad, but striker Jonson Clarke-Harris is sidelined due to injury.

Posh are not expecting to make any changes to their starting line-up with no fresh injury worries reported by Ferguson in the pre-match press conference at London Road. Daniel Kearns has overcome a slight ankle injury that forced him off against Notts County.

Ferguson said: 'Everyone is fit and the players out of the side played 90 minutes in the development side against Luton Town on Wednesday so they are ready to step in if required. We are looking forward to it.

'Oldham have had a mixed bag of results so far, but they have two good strikers in Charlie McDonald and Adam Rooney and Jose Baxter is well known to us. I saw a lot of him when I was in charge of Preston because we played Everton quite a bit in the reserve league.'

Tickets are on sale for the game in advance at www.theposhtickets.com, via the 24-hour hotline 0844 847 1934 and in person at the London Road Box Office. The admission price does rise on the day.
