Think it virtually confirms our relegation if we lose this one. It could just prove to be a platform to bounce back if we do win but I highly doubt we will.

We played much better than I've seen for a while on sat, especially tactically but the personnel just isn't good enough.

Strangely enough though I reckon.we can just sneak this one. 2-1

I'm actually making the trip south for this one. On my own. Not because the footy is too exciting to miss, I'm just ticking it off the 92. Dunno if I'll get the opportunity again next season

Massive game this for us on the back of beating Burton!
Having won 5 away matches already this season we just need to sort the home form (only 3 wins so far) and if we can do this it hopefully will secure our League 1 status. The main problem this season has been not being able to beat teams in the bottom 8 with the exception of Crewe and Colchester!!!!!

And there lies. The difference. You say "only" 3 at home. We have won 3 all season home and away.

I have no confidence in this team whatsoever. They have no confidence themselves. It's hard to watch a goalkeeper and centre back make decisions when neither trusts each other. We have two massive games coming up which could end our season. A point would see us lose no ground on you, however we need three.

This is the first time that I'm confident going in to a game in a long time. After our great win at Burton and the players finally showing some togetherness and confidence in each other I'm starting to believe that we can stay up.

Need a win tonight, and a little favour from our caravan friends wouldn't go amiss :2thumb:

Predicting a solid 2-0 Salop

Finally, for any Oldham fans coming, it is very wind out which probably means that the away stand roof will probably lift up before coming down with an almighty bang. Don't worry though, it's supposed to do that apparently.

Interesting spanner in the works. Gerrard starts for us after leaving shrews. Exactly what has been so desperately lacking this season. A lift for all the fans and hopefully give the rest of the players a lift

Best half of football we have played all season. Look sharp especially down the left. Still look vulnerable at the.back but much much better going forward

Oh my days did we need that.

Great goal from Winiesta and sounds like Anthony Gerrard put in the kind of defensive performance we've needed for some time.

Optimism now. I like it.

Best performance of the season by a country mile. We looked sharp, showed fight and we're tactically spot on again.

The screw has turned.

We can do this

That was yet another inept home performance. Would much rather best a relegation rival than top of the league. Nothing to get the home fans excited about at all. At least the keeper' skit for Oldham won't need washing for the weekend. There's no way that he's had an easier game than that all season.

We've had Gerrard playing for us for the last 3 months, surely we would know that the way to play against him is to get it on the floor and pass or run around him, not pump it in the air to his head.

Great strike for the goal, but felt he could have been closed down quicker. Much the same as the Burton goal on Saturday and the 2nd Barnsley goal the week before.

Shame that we tend to play ok every other game, so we will do ok against Sheffield Wednesday on a Saturday, before getting tanked against Southend next week.

We haven't got our star striker Tyrone though :(
