2 in-form players for Oldham Athletic that need to play Macclesfield this weekend

Oldham Athletic host Macclesfield this weekend. After last weekends horrifying result, the Latics will be hoping for a turnaround. The Football Manc Cave looks at two players who should get a game.

Every team has bad games and off days. However, Oldham will want to forget about last weekend entirely.

They lost 6-1 to Mansfield. David Wheater managed to put the ball in his own net. Morais and Egert both managed to get sent off with minutes between them. To top it off, a penalty was also given away.

Fans couldn’t believe what they were seeing. This weekend sees Oldham play at home which could be beneficial. They currently sit at 21st in the league while Macclesfield sits comfortably at 12th.

Here are two players that Oldham needs to give a chance to this weekend…

Chris Eagles

Eagles seem to make the bench every week but don’t get much game time.

However, things might change this weekend as Filipe Morais suspension could open up space for him.

Both ex Bolton players operate the right-wing. This could be a good opportunity for fans to see Eagles in action if he is picked as a replacement.

Jamie Stott

With Tomas Egert also being shown a red card last week, this opens up a centre back position.

Jamie Stott is a man who has been on the bench recently but this could be Bosnian chance to step up.

Oldham’s defence got very sloppy last weekend. An improvement needs to be made and quick.
