Oldham Athletic need a jolt, this player will make a difference today against Mansfield

Oldham Athletic have had an eventful start to the season. They need more points and The Football Manc Cave are picking out a player who’s performance could make a difference.

The Latics started the season with a new manager and fans weren’t looking forward to what League 2 would have to offer. They got off to a fairly bad start. Fans got increasingly frustrated, therefore, they have now another manager.

Fans and players just want to see some points. Even though results haven’t always been great. goals have started to arrive. Now it is a matter of gaining wins.

I have picked out a player who I think will be effective in making changes happen if he gets enough of a chance.

Filipe Morais

The ex Bolton player made a return to Oldham recently. The 33-year-old winger has expressed how excited he is to rejoin the Latics and has made an impact on the pitch.

Morais is a player who actively uses social media and often expresses his views on Twitter. This is either about his own performance or the team as a whole. Above all, he just wants to get results.

He has been effective during games so if he could get more appearances under his belt, he could help Oldham move forward. He is determined, focused and experienced. This positive outlook is something he could influence other players to adapt to.

Hopefully wins will start to come more often for Oldham.
