History of the Oldham Athletic v Sheffield Wednesday fixture

Sheff. Wed. pack their bags to visit Oldham Athletic at Boundary Park on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Owls will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 11 and win only 4 of the 21 games.

The previous match played between the two at Boundary Park was more than three years back, in September 2000, as the visitors ran out cosy 1 - 3 winners in a League Cup match.

Oldham Athletic's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While Latics have scored 5, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.

Sheff. Wed.'s away form is none too clever either, collecting 2 wins and 3 draws from the last six. The Owls's have a narrow positive goal difference over these games, with 10 goals for and 9 against.
