Oldham Athletic will be keen to knuckle down to business in npower league 1 after their FA Cup giant killing exploits in recent weeks. They lurk precariously in 20th place above the relegation zone. They come into the game off a great away win at Stevenage and will look to build momentum.
Portsmouth have not won since 20th October 2012 in the league which makes it an incredible 20 league games without a win. Pompey look destined for relegation and it seems there off the field battles have proved to be crippling to player morale and team performance not to mention player recruitment. Rock bottom and 10 points off safety- saving the clubs existence looks the main priority down on the south coast.
Many will be expecting a home win for the latics.
