Last Time We Met Oldham Athletic

19 October 2018

Neil Aspin and his Port Vale team travel to Boundary Park on Saturday afternoon to face Oldham Athletic in Sky Bet League Two, but what happened when the two sides last faced each other?

August 2017 was when Vale last played against the Latics, with the fixture taking place in the Checkatrade Trophy, but it wasn't a thriller in Greater Manchester.

Michael Brown's Valiants did pile on the pressure during the opening 45 minutes as Rekeil Pyke and Dan Turner looked lively in the final third, but they couldn't find a way past the goalkeeper.

Neither side then created too much of note during the second half and the game went straight to penalties. Vale found the net with all of their spot kicks to secure a win and a bonus point in their group.

The previous league meeting at Boundary Park also ended in a goalless draw, but the goals did flow when Vale Park last hosted a fixture between the teams and it ended in a 2-2 draw in Sky Bet League One back in November 2016.

When looking at the head-to-head record between the two clubs, it's Port Vale who just edge it in terms of victories. 78 games have taken place, with Vale winning 31, drawing 19 and losing 28.
