Oldham Athletic vs. Preston North End

Big Match Preview: Oldham Athletic

PNE make a short trip down the road to face fellow Lancashire club Oldham on Saturday.

Fresh from the great victory against top side Huddersfield, PNE more or less secured their place in league 1 next season so will head to Boundary Park under no pressure.

Oldham still hover round the drop zone but only need a draw to guarantee a place in league 1 so will be going all out for the points.

The game is also dedicated to Prestons goalkeeper Thorsten Stuckmann after recently becoming a fans favorite with the North End faithful.
