Oldham play hosts to Sheffield United on Saturday in a game that will have huge bearings at both ends on the table.

John Sheridan’s Oldham side are looking to continue their revival with him at the helm, as they seek to pull themselves away from danger, towards the safety of mid table.

Sheffield United on the other hand, have different aspirations. Chris Wilder has guided the Blades to the top of League One and their six point cushion seems like it will be enough to see Wilder’s men back to the Championship.

Recent Form:

Oldham’s resurgence under Sheridan has seen them lose just one of their last six games. The only blotch on their record coming at the hands of Walsall, a 2-0 loss.

The Blades have won their last three in a row and are unbeaten in their last nine games, the last defeat coming away at Fleetwood back in January.

Team News:

Sheffield United could be without the services of former Burnley left back, Danny Lafferty, who is a doubt through injury; Chris Hussey could deputise in his absence.

Oldham have no fresh injury concerns. Lee Erwin is expected to retain his place in the Latics attack and Aiden O’Neill could regain his place in the heart of the Oldham midfield.
