Footymad preview History of the Coventry City v Oldham Athletic fixture

Oldham Athletic travel to take on Coventry City at City of Coventry Stadium on Saturday afternoon, looking to break their duck against the hosts. Most of the previous meetings have ended up in defeat for the Latics.

The last time the two teams met at Coventry City was well over fifteen years ago, back in December 1993, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1 - 1 final scoreline in a Premiership match.
