Time at Club:
Oldham are set to name Richie Wellens as John Sheridan's replacement in the dugout. Sheridan parted ways with the club by mutual consent following a 5-1 thrashing against Rotherham. Wellens was placed in caretaker charge and went on to win four and lose none of his five matches in charge.
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.
A mixed set of recent results has seen Oldham Athletic collect wins versus Grimsby Town, Crawley Town, Morecambe & Macclesfield Town while suffering adverse results at Newport County, Barnsley & Derby County. Draws against Colchester United, Yeovil Town & Forest Green has seen them show mid-table form at best.
