Take a look at everything you need to know ahead of Saturday's game in our full and in-depth preview of the trip to Boundary Park.

Oldham Athletic v Barrow
Saturday 4th September 2021, 3pm
Boundary Park
Sky Bet League Two

In Opposition
After a relatively slow start to the new campaign, Oldham Athletic seem to have clicked into gear over the past week and registered confidence boosting back-to-back wins.

Keith Curle’s men lost each of their first four League Two fixtures but victory at Sutton United last weekend got them off the mark and they backed that up with a Papa John’s Trophy win over Salford City in midweek.

The Latics will be keen to keep on building that momentum as they look to improve on last term’s 18th-place finish in League Two during Curle’s first full season in charge at Boundary Park.

One To Watch
Experienced defender Carl Piergianni has been an ever-present for The Latics this term and the dominant centre-back has been in typically solid form.

The 29-year-old joined Oldham permanently last summer following a loan spell from Salford City where he all-action style had made him a big favourite with supporters.

Piergianni is a strong and committed defender who loves the physical battle and is also capable of chipping in with goals, as highlighted by the fact he has scored in each of his last two games.

Head To Head
This weekend will see the clubs meet for a 53rd time, with Barrow having enjoyed 25 wins in the fixture in comparison to Oldham’s 22 victories.

Last season, both meetings went in the favour of the away side – Scott Quigley’s late winner at Boundary Park proving particularly important as The Bluebirds went on to steer clear of the bottom two.

Referee
Carl Boyeson will take charge of his first Barrow game of the season this weekend when he presides over our meeting with Oldham Athletic at Boundary Park.

The experienced official is now into his 20th season as a Football League referee and last saw The Bluebirds in action during the 2-0 win over Mansfield Town in March.

Boyeson has overseen two League One fixtures so far this term, with his most recent appointment coming a fortnight ago when he watched Doncater Rovers’ goalless draw with Portsmouth.

Barrow Turn On The Style At Oldham

Barrow turned on the style to claim their first away win of the new campaign as they swept Oldham Athletic aside with a fine display at Boundary Park on Saturday.

Mark Cooper’s men were the better side from the off and took a first half lead through Ollie Banks early on before two quick goals from Offrande Zanzala and Joe Grayson early in the second half sealed the deal.

It was Barrow who set the tone from the first whistle and pushed their hosts on to the back foot in the opening minutes with a series of deliveries into the box testing The Latics’ rear-guard.

Josh Gordon came close to capitalising on the confident start when he turned sharply on a ball in to him just inside the area but his effort towards the far post just didn’t curl enough to find the net.

A lovely move down the right provided another opportunity for Gordon moments later as he got on to a cross at the front post to glance a header on goal which flashed just wide of the back post as Patrick Brough stretched to try and get a decisive touch.

The pressure told right on 15 minutes when Ollie Banks picked up possession 25 yards out and dropped on to his right foot to hit a crisp low drive which flew past keeper Jayson Leutwiler and into the bottom left corner of the net.

The home side started to come into the game as it wore on and Paul Farman had to make an excellent save to his left to keep out Jamie Bowden’s firm header after good work from the dangerous Dylan Fage on the right.

Alan Sheehan brough a magnificent save from the Bluebirds keeper in first half injury time when his 25-yard free kick crept over the wall and looked set for the top left corner before a full length intervention from Farman.

The second half got off to a dream start for The Bluebirds when the ball broke on the left for Offrande Zanzala and he skilfully glided past two defenders before sending a low finish across Leutwiler for 2-0.

There was less than an hour on the clock when the visiting fans were in raptures once again as Joe Grayson’s whipped free kick from the right bypassed everyone in the middle and flew straight intp the net for a third Barrow goal.

Oldham fans then forced a short stoppage to the game when a small number invaded the pitch and sat in the centre circle to lead protests against the club’s ownership.

However, the game restarted after a few minutes though Barrow’s work was done, and they controlled much of the closing half hour with boss Cooper able to bring on fresh legs in Tom White and Josh Kay.

The Bluebirds could even have increased their lead when Gordon first nodded over a Brough cross from the left before glancing wide from a Brough corner late on.
