HEAD TO HEAD: Coventry City look to extend their superior head to head record against Oldham Athletic

14 April 2015

Sky Blues have won ten meetings against the Latics, though they have not won in their last three attempts...

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

City have won ten of the 22 meetings, with Oldham winning six. 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 scoreline 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.

Last time out Oldham were 4-1 winners at Boundary Park, but the night was notable for James Maddison's first ever City goal, a defelcted free kick which reduced the score to 2-1 at the time.
