Repeating myself, I know, but by fuckety fuck fuck this is a big game.

A point wouldn't be the end of the world, but a win really is vital. A win coupled with Fleetwood failing to get 3pts would be orgasmic.

Hoping Swindon are already on their holidays.

Holloway is out for 3-4wks for us which is a massive blow. Will probably mean the uninterested Forte up top...

Coleman

Wilson - Dieng - Gerrard - THD

Jones - Palmer - Kelly - Winchester

Main - Forte
Hoping for a scrappy 1-0 win (even though Ajose always scores against us).

Winchester to bag.

You'll piss it, believe me. We are indescribably bad. Fleetwood hadn't scored for 5 hours before they played us and should have had 5 but for their dreadful strikers.

Been supporting us for a long, long time and haven't seen anything close to being as utter shite as we are now.

As simple a home win as you can get. I actually forgot about this game.

You'll probably get a good laugh tomorrow at our ineptitude Latics

Fully expect Swindon to cave in, I just hope they are as obliging when we play them on the final day of the season!

3-0 home win at least. I'd be amazed if we have the heart in us to get anything from an Oldham side fighting for their lives.

Banker of all bankers. Got me 11/10 on Skybet.

We are, honestly, rib-ticklingly bad so don't get fooled thinking you are world beaters after besting our shower of shite.

Just take a look at tonight's Town line-up and bench. No Ajose, no Obika, no Nathan Thompson, a bunch of kids on the bench. That will explain the pessimism and general apathy from Town fans at the moment.

Any score to nil in favour of Oldham.

Anyone ever lost 6-0 in successive away games before?

Are they injured?

Was gonna say that with Ajose playing, that's a definite 0-1 lead for you as he ALWAYS scores against us, so would have meant we would need 2.

As for the 3-0 prediction above - give over. Oldham scoring 3 goals in a game is as rare as rocking horse shit.

Yeah, I may be overly optimistic restricting you to 6

If you're quick Oldham are 21/10 to win giving away 1 goal

Swindon ain't half as bad as you lot suggest. Yes, a bit suspect at the back but quick on the break. Always got a goal in them.

Gotta say, we have finally learnt how to cross a ball. Classic goal from kelly but Forte having his game of the season (just shows how bad he has been). Ripping his full back apart and put 3 or four peaches in.

A lot of nice football from Swindon tbf. Clearly missing Ajose & Obika.

The fact you're playing with wing backs is causing us problems though, and I do like the look of your long-named LWB. Decent little player.

Swindon started well but in the second half showed why they are in the form they are in. Heads down, whinging at both the ref and each other, more bothered about winning decision than football matches.

Tbf to latics we didn't get dragged down to their level ( except for Gerrard, but I actually think that helped with the second goal)

Bloody Fleetwood. If we stay up this year it'll be bloody well deserved. Workmanlike performances every week just to get the job done. I'll take that til the summer

Not looking good for Doncaster now either. It's very much looking like 5 teams trying to avoid the remaining spot!

The more I look, do we think 52 points will be enough cos I am not so sure?

Kelly was one of if not the player of the season last year. His massive dip in form is a major reason we are where we are, although he isn't the only one.

However last night he was back to his superb best.

Pretty much what he said.

Rather poor this season. His passing has never been the greatest and it likely never will, but last night he was back to his dominating best, breaking up play and arriving late into the box (the goal was a prime example).

Close MOTM last night.
