Oldham v Posh: Match Preview

10 September 2015

Posh head to Boundary Park on Saturday to face Oldham Athletic (3pm).

Caretaker manager Grant McCann takes charge of the Peterborough United side for the first time on Saturday as they travel to Boundary Park to face Oldham Athletic in Sky Bet League One action (3pm).

McCann has been placed in charge following the departure of Dave Robertson this week and will be helped by Dave Farrell and Goalkeeping Coach Ian Pledger against the Latics.

Posh are without the services of Michael Bostwick who is serving a one-match suspension after collecting five booking this season. Gabi Zakuani returns from suspension while midfielder Jermaine Anderson is also available for selection after missing the defeat at Southend United due to international duty. He played the final 12 minutes of England under 20s defeat to the Czech Republic.

Kgosi Ntlhe (toe) has trained with the physiotherapist this week and could be in contention for a return against Oldham. Jack Baldwin is now in contact training with his team-mates and is set to play an internal training fixture next week as he begins to get minutes under his belt ahead of a return to the first team fold.

Oldham have collected seven points from their opening six games of the season but they have drawn four of those games and were beaten last time out at the hands of Bradford City.

Striker Jonathan Forte is suspended after he was sent off for a headbutt in that fixture against the Bantams.

Posh caretaker boss McCann is looking forward to the game and believes it will be an entertaining contest. 'I know their manager Darren Kelly well and spoke to him a few weeks back. He likes to play football and so do I. It is in my genes to want to play attacking, attractive football and that is what I want my players to do.

'I have said to the players this week that I will be picking my team based on how they trained and how those players involved played in the under 21s. I have no interest in whether they think they have played well in recent first team fixtures,' McCann said.

The game is not all-ticket for Posh fans and there is no price rise on the day.  Tickets are priced at £22 for adults, £12 for over 65s, £10 for under 16s and £5 for under 12s.

Fans are advised that the car parking facilities at Oldham are hugely restricted due to building work taking place.
