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.
