Oldham were managed by Frankie Bunn who replaced Richie Wellens in June 2018 but are now on the hunt for a new manager after their 6-0 Boxing Day thrashing from Carlisle.
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.
Oldham Athletic have reaped 6 wins in the last 10 games, beating Fulham, Notts County, Port Vale, Bury, Crewe Alexandra & Maidstone United. 1 draws against Forest Green and defeats to Carlisle United, Exeter City & Rochdale has seen them score 18 at an average of 1.8 goals per game while shipping 15.
