Oldham vs Featherstone update

Date published: Wednesday, February 15, 2012

Tonight’s home match against Featherstone Rovers in the Northern Rail Cup definitely goes ahead after extensive pitch work over the last few days

After the rise in temperatures the pitch has gone from frozen to holding surface water yesterday but with the help of the clubs own staff and our pitch maintenance contractor work has been completed to make the surface playable.

Whilst still soft as a result of the amount of water on it the pitch was passed fit this morning.

Tony Benson has named the following team ;-

1 Miles Greenwood
2 Lucas Onyango
3 Paul Ballard
4 Matt Fogarty
5 Chris Murphy
6 Jamie Dallimore
7 Neil Roden
8 Liam Gilchrist
9 John Clough
10 Jason Boults
11 Chris Clarke
12 Paul Smith
13 Valu Bentley
14 Dave Ellison
15 Bruce Johnson
16 Danny Whitmore
17 Mike Ward
18 David Cookson

This means that Neil Roden and Lucas Onyango play for the first time this season and there will be a debut for Paul Ballard.

Kick off is 8pm and the social club will be open before and after the game.
