Wildly optimistic.... if we can win this we might be on to something. A draw more realistic and acceptable.

Im going today. Last time I went to see us against Oldham we lost a high scoring game and Oldham scored a beezer of a goal from 30 yard. I want to say 2-3 (Ajose May have scored)

As for today, interesting one, both sides have had half decent starts to the season and this could be a pre-cursor to a play off game come the end of the season. Weve done well without Doughty and managed to paper over the cracks with under performing players such as Taylor and Richards (based on what Ive read on here).

Ill go 2-2. Adebayo and Keshi for us.

My dad passed away in December 2010 the day after Towns game at Boundary Park was frozen off. I was telling him this and the last conscious thing I recall him mustering the strength to say was I toldem Oldham which he had said throughout his life. So Im predicting a 2-1 win so I can repeat those words today.

Oldham unbeaten at the CG in the last 6 visits with 3 wins and 3 draws here, scoring 8 and us only getting 4. They don't have a very high following on the road, they have averaged 200 away fans in the last visits.

On Saturday they came back from being 3-1 down to draw 3-3 at home with Col U.

They sit in 6th place (equal with us) with exactly the same record of 4 wins, 3 draws and 2 defeats so far this season scoring 1 less than us but conceding 5 less, hence their higher league position.

Their record so far this season in the league is LDWDWWLWD (with 2 defeats in the cups too) both their defeats have come at home this season to MKD and Newport both by a single goal.

On the road Oldham have been very hard to beat, despite their relegation last season they have only lost once on their travels since January with the only loss a defeat at Wigan in March a run of DWDLDDDDDDWW.

I would be happy with a draw today in front of 6,156 fans with 275 from Ooop North.

2-1 defeat with Anderson scoring.

I would also be happy with a draw, but we have a good potential to win it. Which Swindon turns up, its quite interesting.

Bury don't win away, Yeovil don't concede goals, Oldham don't lose away, Swindon don't beat Oldham at home.

Surely that's all adding up to a Swindon win today. 

3-1 - Doughty to come of the bench for 10 minutes to bag the 3rd.

Runs are there for the breaking, that is true.

I like your thinking KT... if we could get a win today, then it would be a significant step. 

If we are to do anything this season then we need to get a consistency and string together a run of wins, but the same applies to most of the teams in Div 4... only Lincoln atm look to have that.

And even they have been beaten in the league by Crawley and in the cups vs Blackburn and Mansfield which is only 1 less in total than us.

I had a glance at the league table after reading this expecting to find Oldham are runaway leaders...the inferiority complex which has swept some of our fan base in recent years is frankly frightening.

Get a grip.
