Oldham are desperate for points. They face Walsall tonight and are hoping to be rewarded with some. The Football Manc Cave have picked out 2 players that should start tonight and who should be dropped.
It’s safe to say that Oldham are having a tough time in League Two.
Ahead of tonight’s clash with Walsall, there’s a few players returning to the squad. However, there’s also a few who can’t play.
Tomas Egert is serving a three match ban. Mohammed Maouche and Mohamad Sylla are also suspended on yellow cards. Dylan Fage, Zak Mills and Johan Branger-Engone are all also out with injury.
However, Filipe Morais and Zeus De La Paz are both back in the squad. With this team news in mind, here’s 2 players who should be in the squad tonight. We are also addressing who should be dropped…
In: Filipe Morais
The ex Bolton player was sent off a couple of weeks ago but has now served his match ban.
Now that he’s available, he should be in that starting line-up. He does make an impact on the team but I personally think that frustrations led him to make a silly tackle that got him sent off.
In: Chris Eagles
Some fans will agree with me when I say that he deserves a chance. Even if he comes on as a substitute.
He seems to be stuck on the bench at Boundary Park and needs an opportunity. Fans want to see change so why not take a chance on a different player and see what he has to offer?
With all the injuries and suspensions in the squad, it’s impossible to pick out 2 who should be dropped.
However, the suspension of Mohammed Maouche needs addressing. Fans don’t want him in the squad.
When he was replaced in Oldham’s last game, fans actually cheered. The fact that he isn’t available tonight should give Chris Eagles a chance to start. If that happens and he plays well, fans will cry out for him to start more often.
