MATCH PREVIEW | Oldham Athletic vs Wrexham AFC

Red Dragons head to Boundary Park for the first time since 2005

30 September 2022

Wrexham AFC return to action this weekend, as Phil Parkinson’s side aim to make it eight games unbeaten after dismantling Torquay United at the Racecourse Ground last time out.

Six different scorers capped off a clinical performance in front of nearly 10,000 supporters, with Sam Dalby and Anthony Forde bagging their first goals for the club.

After only one defeat on the road this season, Parkinson’s men will go to Boundary Park facing a tough test – the first home game for Latics under the management of David Unsworth.

The former Everton Under-23s manager took the helm late last week and endured a 3-0 defeat to Bromley in his opening encounter.

Team news

Phil Parkinson revealed that both Bryce Hosannah and Tom O’Connor came through training sessions this week, with the hope that they will be back in action sooner rather than later.

However, he also confirmed that Jacob Mendy had a scan earlier this week after sustaining an injury in last Saturday’s victory against Torquay.

For Unsworth, his Lactics side has been bolstered with the addition of former Wrexham playmaker John Rooney, on a two-year deal.

Latics also announced that David Okagbue has extended his stay at Boundary Park, with his loan move from Stoke City ending in January.

The Opposition: Oldham Athletic

It’s been a tale of two stories for Oldham, one on and one off the pitch, with the positive news that now owner Frank Rothwell purchased the club.

Last month the club also agreed to purchase Boundary Park and the surrounding land, offering more security for the club.

On the pitch it hasn’t been plain sailing in their first season in the Vanarama National League, however.

Iconic former player and manager John Sheridan left the club by mutual consent after only amounting two wins from their opening eight fixtures.

Both victories this season came at Boundary Park, and they have only managed to win one of their last five matches.

Last week Latics made the appointment of former Everton Caretaker Manager and Under-23s boss David Unsworth.

Unsworth arrived at Latics with a rich pedigree at youth level but fell to a defeat in his first game against Bromley.

Previous Meetings

Last time the two sides met was a League One fixture back in 2005, when the Red Dragons secured a last gasp 1-0 victory, courtesy of a 90th minute goal by Hector Sam.

In our last visit to Boundary Park, the clubs faced off in the Football League Trophy, with Wrexham overcoming the Lactics in an eight-goal barnstormer.

A Juan Ugarte hat-trick inspired the victory, and ultimately helped win the contest over two legs.

In competitive football, the two sides have been evenly matched, with Wrexham winning 28 of the 75 matches, compared to Oldham’s 25.

Wrexham currently hold a six-game unbeaten run over Oldham, and with more than 2000 fans travelling to Boundary Park, they will be hoping to make it number seven come 5pm tomorrow.

Follow The Action

Live audio commentary will be available via WrexhamPlayer, with match updates also posted to the Live Match Centre and the Club's official Twitter account.

Match highlights will be posted onto WrexhamPlayer at midnight (BST), due to the Vanarama National League highlights show featuring on BT Sport at 11.30pm.

MATCH REPORT | Oldham Athletic 1-2 Wrexham AFC

Paul Mullin scores stoppage-time penalty as Red Dragons come from behind to go top of the league

1 October 2022

Paul Mullin converted a stoppage-time penalty as Wrexham came from behind to beat Oldham Athletic at Boundary Park and go top of the league.

Ben Tozer head earlier gone from villain to hero – being caught in possession to allow Mike Fondop to open the scoring in the first-half, before levelling late on with a cool low finish.

Luke Young was then caught by a high boot in the area and Mullin coolly scored from the spot to win the game in front of a huge travelling support.

Manager Phil Parkinson made one change from the team which started against Torquay a week earlier – Callum McFadzean replacing the injured Jacob Mendy.

There was little action of note in the first part of the first-half, however, until Oldham started to apply a spell of pressure and John Rooney curled wide on 23 minutes.

Three minutes later, Latics were in front – ex-Red Fondop catching Ben Tozer in possession and rifling a low finish beyond Mark Howard and into the bottom corner from 20 yards.

James Carragher and Paul Mullin clashed on 37 minutes, with the Wrexham man going to ground clutching his face, but referee Matthew Dicicco diffused the situation.

Half-time was welcome for Wrexham, and after the break the Red Dragons – shooting towards more than 2,500 visiting supporters – were much improved.

The introduction of Elliot Lee on 59 minutes made an impact and on 63 minutes, Aaron Hayden’s volley – from McFadzean’s cross – was blocked.

Three minutes later, Lee headed goalwards from Anthony Forde’s right-wing cross, but Magnus Norman saved to his left.

On 71 minutes, Mullin then brought a high ball down, turned and shot but his right-footed effort deflected just wide.

Luke Young shot from distance a minute later, but straight at Norman, and on 78 minutes, Davies dragged a low shot wide after pouncing on a loose ball.

Young’s low corner caused carnage in the 83rd minute, but Hayden and Davies could not steer the ball goalwards.

Just a minute later, however, Tozer levelled for the Red Dragons. Substitute Liam McAlinden crossed in, Elliot Lee calmly fed the ball to Tozer and the centre-back drove the ball across goal and into the bottom corner.

Highlights from today's game will be available to view on WrexhamPlayer at midnight.
