Ojo hoping Latics can continue winning run on the road.

  • Sheyi Ojo previews Latics’ trip to Rotherham United on Saturday.
  • Young forward hopes Latics can keep up good away form.
  • “The big thing for me is to add more assists and score some goals.” – Ojo.
Sheyi Ojo says Latics are determined to maintain their positive away record of recent weeks when they visit Rotherham United’s AESSEAL New York Stadium this weekend.

Speaking to after an afternoon’s filming with LFC TV for his parent club Liverpool, the young forward began:

“On Saturday we’ve got to get back to that good feeling from the Norwich game.

“Away from home we’ve been really good results wise and if we can make it a fourth win in a row against Rotherham then I think it sends out a message to them and the other teams above us.

“We were unlucky to lose against Leeds last weekend and it was a game we needed to win to keep up that momentum we had been building, but we’ve won our last three away games, so we’ll use that to go into the Rotherham game with confidence.

“The group is very close and I think it’s been on show away from home in the way we’ve ground results out.  If we can do that again against Rotherham and bring it home to the DW Stadium then hopefully we’ll have enough to make sure we stay in the Championship.”

With a full week to prepare for the clash with the Millers in South Yorkshire, Ojo said the squad is raring to go.

“Training has been really good this week and with a full week to prepare and wait for the game it means we’ll be even hungrier to get going quickly after kick off.

“We’ve got some exciting players going forwards who like to run at defenders to try and force mistakes, so hopefully we can create enough on Saturday to give us the edge we need.

“We’ve got so many other ways we can hurt them though, in training we’ve been tuning how we’re going to do that and come Saturday we’re looking forward to putting that to good practice.”

Ojo has featured in seven games since joining Latics on loan from Liverpool, and says he’s determined to make a bigger contribution before the end of the season.

“I’ve played seven games since arriving here and in general things have gone well.  We’ve won three games, collected some crucial points and personally I’ve learned a lot.

“The big thing for me at the moment is to add more assists and some goals to my game in order to help the team out.”
