HEAD TO HEAD: Coventry City look to extend their 23-year unbeaten league record against Oldham Athletic

21 October 2014

Sky Blues have not lost at Boundary Park since a League Cup exit in 1993, and aim to go one better than the two draws last season…

Coventry City head to Boundary Park tonight to take on Oldham Athletic in a SkyBet League One clash, and the Sky Blues will be buoyed by their excellent head to head record against the Latics.

City have won ten of the 21 meetings, with Oldham winning five, the last being in the old Division One in 1991. There have been six draws overall, with four of those coming in the last seven meetings.

The Sky Blues' record win against the Latics came in 1924, when City won 5-1. Oldhams record win came in the same season, with a 5-0 socreline in 1925.

The two teams were founding members of the inaugural Premier League in 1992, and City did the double over Oldham in that season, the first of two occasions that this has happened.

The Sky Blues won 1-0 at Boundary Park, Kevin Gallacher netting the only goal. City won 3-0 in the reverse fixture at Highfield Road, Gallacher scoring twice again, either side of a Peter Ndlovu strike. The Latics have never done the double over City.
