First time: Bob Jack’s men drew 1-1 in a Second Division fixture on Saturday, November 22, 1930. Jack Leslie scored for us.

Last time: Derek Adams team won 4-1 in a League One match on Saturday, December 23, 2017. Toumani Diagouraga, Graham Carey, Ryan Edwards and Jake Jervis were our scorers.

Biggest win: We have twice beaten the Latics 5-0 at Home Park, both times in the Second Division. The first time was on Monday, March 28, 1932. Jack Leslie (2), Eugene Melaniphy (2) and Harry Roberts ensured that Argyle fans completed their Easter festivities on a high. The second time was Saturday, January 16, 1954. Ernie Edds, Hugh McJarrow, George Dews (2) and an own-goal from Oldham’s Ken Brierley gave Jimmy Rae’s team victory.

Heaviest defeat: Ellis Stuttard’s Pilgrims lost 1-3 in a Third Division fixture on Tuesday, September 26, 1972, the only time that Athletic have scored more than twice in a single EFL match at Home Park. Steve Davey scored our consolation.

Most goals in a single game: The record here is five, which has occurred four times. As well as our two 5-0 victories and our 4-1 win last time out, we also beat the Latics 3-2 in a Second Division match during the Dave Smith era. John Clayton, Adrian Burrows and Tommy Tynan were the scorers on Saturday, November 29, 1986.

Further interesting facts:

Prior to our 4-1 win over Oldham at Home Park in December 2017, Athletic had gone five EFL games undefeated at the Theatre of Greens, winning three and drawing two. They scored exactly two goals in each game.

Before Oldham’s unbeaten five-game run, Argyle had beaten the team from Greater Manchester four times in a row in EFL matches at Home Park and were been unbeaten in seven.

Saturday’s game is the earliest in a season that we have played Oldham at home. The previous earliest was in the 1933-4 season when we met on Saturday, September 23.
