Profile

Oldham are once again managed by John Sheridan who returned for a third spell at the helm in January 2017, and proceeded to save the club from relegation.

It's hard to believe now but Oldham were one of the founding teams in the first ever Premier League back in 1992. Since then though we have seen the club slip down the English ladder to League One with troubles on and off the pitch blighting their recent history.

It was not so long ago that Oldham were considered a big club and the fans will be eager for them to return to their former glory as soon as possible. Johnson will be aware of the pressure and he faces a massive challenge over the next few years in his first job in management. At the moment Oldham are firmly established in League One but they face a tough task if they are to challenge for promotion in the near future with so many top class teams in the division.

Numerous drawns but few defeats has seen Oldham Athletic enjoy a strong run of results. Defeats against Bristol Rovers and Southend United are the only black marks on a run that has seen them amass wins against Bolton Wanderers, Fleetwood Town and Oxford United while sharing the spoils versus AFC Wimbledon, Rochdale, Sheffield United, Peterborough United and Bury
