UP NEXT: Oldham Athletic v Coventry City - Information on the Sky Blues rivals on the final day of the 2015/16 season

5 May 2016

The Sky Blues last met Oldham Athletic on the day it was announced that Jimmy Hill had sadly passed away...

Coventry City travel to Oldham Athletic on the final day of the 2015/16 season and ahead of the 12.30pm kick-off, we look at the oppositions recent form and the last meeting between the two clubs.

Oldham Athletic have witnessed a complete turnaround in the second-half of the season, with the Greater Manchester club looking like favourites to exit League One around the Christmas period. 

Oldham manager John Sheridan spoke of his relief after the recent 1-0 win over Crewe, with the result guaranteeing their safety after they have taken 13 points from seven League games in April.

Manager Sheridan returned to the Latics for a second spell as Head Coach in January ’16 - when Oldham were five points adrift of safety. 

The 51-year-old has won nine games of 21 since taking charge and despite losing to Millwall 3-0 in their last outing, will be given great credit for the turnaround since his appointment. 

Oldham now sit in 17th with one game left to play, a comfortable eight points clear of the drop zone.

The Sky Blues missed the chance to close the gap on leaders Burton Albion back in December as Oldham came from behind to nick an injury time equaliser.

Aaron Martin gave the Sky Blues the lead when he headed in a Joe Cole corner, only for Danny Philliskirk to equalise with a last-minute near-post header.

The game was marked by a minute's applause before kick-off in tribute to former Sky Blues chairman and manager Jimmy Hill, as news broke of his death aged 87.
