Following Blackpools deduction of 10 points for salary cap and registration breaches, this now leaves Oldham in a position that to win on Sunday against South Wales means Oldham cannot finish any lower than second place.

This would be the highest placed finish that the club has had since it was relegated into this division.

Club Chairman, Chris Hamilton said “If we can get the 3 points on Sunday against South Wales it will represent a major achievement for the club and everybody connected with it including fans, staff, sponsors, coaches and players. It will be a real pat on the back on the back for all the hard work that has gone in this season.

The players have performed consistently well all year and deserve all the acolades they get. With four games to go everybody is focussed on trying to maintain the winning run and to see where that leaves us come the end of the season.

With the chance for people to be at Whitebank on Sunday and witness another small piece of history hopefully being created, we are urging fans to get down to the ground and cheer the lads on.”

Tickets are available at the Lansdowne Road office and pre-purchase on the day in the social club.

There will be two games being played as a curtain raiser, kicking off at 1:30pm between Higginshaw and Waterhead under 8’s and under 9’s.
