Oldham Athletic v Millwall - the stats

25 February 2017

Saturday's encounter analysed...

Millwall travel to Oldham Athletic this Saturday looking to stretch their unbeaten run to 15 games in all competitions.

The game at SportsDirect.com Park (kick-off 3pm) will also see The Lions attempt to secure their sixth consecutive win over The Latics - a run that began back in August 2009.

David Martin and Neil Harris were on target on that particular occasion, as Kenny Jackett's side won 2-0. Harris converted a penalty-kick in the return fixture at Boundary Park in January 2010, as The Lions grabbed all three points in a bad-tempered affair.

The two clubs were made to wait for their first meeting of the 2015/16 campaign due to a postponement in OL1, but at the second attempt, Steve Morison fired Millwall to a hard-earned victory, as he headed home the winning goal after Mike Jones had levelled Lee Gregory's opener.

The last two match-ups have seen Neil Harris' side ease to 3-0 wins - Shane Ferguson's strike accompanied Byron Webster's double in April 2016, whilst on the first day of the 2016/17 campaign, Webster was on target once more, as he opened his account for the season along with Gregory (pen) and Aiden O'Brien.

A date forever etched in the memory of a certain generation of Millwall fan is May 5th 2001. With The Lions having secured promotion to Division One (now The Championship) the previous week at Wrexham, they won the Division Two title in style against The Latics, with Paul Moody (2), Harris (2) and Steven Reid's rocket ensuring a 5-0 thumping of their hapless opponents.

Historically, games against The Latics have been fruitful for Millwall - in 65 meetings, The Lions have won 28, with just 17 victories to Oldham's name.

Goals are not hard to come by, either - the last 24 meetings between the two have produced goals, with a goalless draw not being seen since December 1990.

A reminder that Saturday's encounter is all-ticket - there will be no sales on the day at the ground. If you are unable to make the trip to Oldham, all the action will be covered by live commentary on LionsPlayerHD and on the club's social media channels.
