PRE-MATCH BUILD UP
Paul Cook takes his side into the ‘battle of the Latics’ having made the perfect start to life as Wigan Athletic manager, with three wins from three, an unblemished record of two league wins to go with victory in the Carabao Cup.

Any thoughts that this match will be an easy ride against a side who have the opposite record of losing three out of three were quickly dispelled by Cook in his pre-match press conference, however. “This will be a tough game, make no mistake,” he said, “John is such an experienced manager, he will have a strategy to put things right and we’d expect no less.”

John Sheridan is currently in his third spell as Latics manager and will be desperate to turn around the side’s early season form. But Latics, backed by a following of at least 1,600 looking for a 4th win from four, will be keen to keep up their momentum.

It’s another North-West derby, with an electric atmosphere guaranteed.

OUR RECORD AT OLDHAM
It was honours even in the 2015-16 season the last time the sides met here in the league, Max Power having given Latics an early lead before Dominic Poleon equalised.

Latics lost in the Capital One Cup here in September 2016 with a much-changed team but prior to these games, the sides had not met since the 2002-03 season, when Latics did the double over Oldham.

The last time – the players celebrate Max Power’s opener.

MAJOR CONNECTIONS
One player who will be familiar is Craig Davies, who joined back up with his former club in the summer after his spell at Scunthorpe United ended – the club he joined from Latics in January of this year. The striker scored just three goals in 40 games with Latics but there’s no doubting he has the ability to cause problems on his day.

Paul Cook’s Latics maintained their 100% start to the season and went top of Sky Bet League One with early goals from Ivan Toney and Michael Jacobs in a dominating performance at Oldham.

In the first half, Latics were untouchable. Two goals up inside 15 minutes, they had chances to increase their lead and simply allowed the home side no time and space, pressing high in midfield and clinical in front of goal.

After the break, the home side came back into it and Latics had to dig in, but they saw out the game effectively, staying disciplined and reducing Oldham to very few chances.

Latics were unchanged going into the game, the only alteration from the Bury squad being the inclusion of Jamie Jones on the bench for the first time since signing for the club.

Cook’s men went in two goals to the good at the break after an impeccable first half of near total dominance.

They were razor sharp from the start, Lee Evans firing wide from the edge of the box after five minutes. It was the Welshman, fresh from scoring his spectacular first goal for the club with his late strike against The Shakers, who was then the architect for the opening goal, three minutes later.

Reece James initially created the opening, getting behind Brian Wilson to fire in a dangerous low cross from the left, cleared for a corner at the near post. Evans played it short to Samy Morsy, received it back then swung it in and Toney was there to nonchalantly flick the ball past the dive of Ben Wilson from six yards – his first for the club as well.

Jacobs had threatened to score again before he added a second, on 15 minutes. Morsy provided a low cross from the right, which wasn’t cleared and the ball fell to Jacobs in the box. His shot was saved, but the ball again was not dealt with by Oldham’s defence and Jacobs picked it up inside a crowded six-yard box before firing in a low drive from a tight angle. What a start.

Latics were irresistible and could have added a third after a slick move in the 23rd minute, Nick Powell’s flick freeing Jacobs, who then found Powell on the edge of the box with a return pass, who shot low and Wilson had to be at full stretch to parry the ball away low to his left side. Gavin Massey then brought out another fine save from Wilson after 36 minutes, set up by Jacobs after Latics had broken at speed and back heeled the ball inside the box.

Oldham did not have a single attempt on goal before the break, their best moment coming when Ollie Banks’ in-swinging corner had to be tipped over the bar by Christian Walton in the 30th minute.

That changed that within seconds of the restart, however, Banks not managing to get much on Aaron Amadi-Holloway’s header at the far post from Gyamfi Kyeremah’s deep cross and it was simple for Walton.

Oldham had clearly been given a half-time rousing by manager John Sheridan and looked far more threatening. Burn had to head away a Dan Gardner corner and Latics were not allowed to play the kind of free-flowing passing we had witnessed before the break.

That said, Toney was able to fire just over in the 57th minute when following up his own shot. Alex Gilbey replaced Powell after an hour and was immediately in the action, setting up Evans in the box, only to be denied by a late Peter Clarke tackle.

Will Grigg then replaced Toney in the 71st minute but the game had lost its fluency and neither side really created much.

Oldham substitute Darius Ossey had the home side’s best chance, firing straight at Walton when he cut back and shot in the 89th minute.

Latics saw out the five minutes of additional time and as the away end sang ‘Paul Cook’s blue and white army’, the manager  and the players went to salute them at the end of another great afternoon for the club.

Latics: Walton, N. Byrne, Dunkley, Burn, James, Morsy, L. Evans, Massey (Colclough 84), Jacobs, Powell (Gilbey, 60), Toney (Grigg 71).
Subs not used: Jones, Thomas, Perkins, Hunt.

Oldham Athletic: Ben Wilson, Brian Wilson, Gerrard, Clarke, Hunt, Dummigan Gardner, Banks (Osei, 67), Kyeremah (Fawns, 81), McLaughlin, Amadi- Holloway (Duffus, 67).
Subs not used: Edmundson, Mantack, Fane, Davies.
