THE CONTEXT

Wealdstone and Oldham Athletic clash for the first ever time on Tuesday evening with the recently relegated club enjoying an unbeaten start to life in non-league so far. Every club in the National League has dropped points in the first two games this season, meaning a win for either side will propel them further up the table at this early stage.


WHAT WAS SAID?

Sam Howes: "The good thing is we've got another game within a couple of days so we can obviously put it right against Oldham away. Everyone's looking forward to and we'll go there and give a good account of ourselves."


TEAM NEWS

Olufela Olomola picked up a knock in Saturday's defeat to Eastleigh and is a doubt for Tuesday night's trip to Greater Manchester. Alex Dyer returns from a suspension picked up at the back end of last season and Sam Habergham returned from a knock in pre-season to make his debut from the bench last weekend.


ONE TO WATCH

Summer signing Liam Hogan joined the Latics from National League champions Stockport County, with the defender having a real pedigree in this league having won promotion last season with Stockport and also with Salford City, and winning promotions with five of the seven clubs he has represented.


DID YOU KNOW?

Oldham have a host of famous supporters which include famous comedy duo Cannon and Ball, Professor Brian Cox, Paul Scholes, TV presenter Phillip Schofield, former England Rugby League captain Kevin Sinfield and glamour model Michelle Marsh.
