THREE TO WATCH: OLDHAM ATHLETIC

16 April 2017

Take a look at the potential threats in the ranks of Monday's visitors to the Mem, Oldham Athletic.

#19 - Lee Erwin - Striker 

The forward is on loan at Oldham from Leeds United and with ten goals this season, the twenty-three-year-old striker is Oldham's leading goalscorer, averaging a goal every 282 minutes played.

Erwin scored his first goal for Oldham in a 3-2 defeat aginst Shrewsbury in September and has been a regular feature for the club this campaign.

In recent weeks, the striker has found the net against Northampton, Oxford United, Peterborough United and Fleetwood Town, registering six goals in eight outings.

Since the start of 2017, Oldham are unbeaten in every game where Erwin has found the net.

Erwin was on the scoresheet on Saturday, scoring the only goal in Oldham's 1-0 victory over Bolton Wanderers.

#26 - Peter Clarke - Defender 

With five goals in all competitions, the defender comes second on Oldham's top scorer list.

Earlier in the season, the defender's goals helped Oldham pick up draws on the road against both Charlton and Bradford. 

More recently Clarke found the net against Coventry and Chesterfield United, helping Oldham to take maximum points on both occasions.

#30 - Temitope Obadeyi - Midfield 

On loan from Dundee United, the twenty-seven-year-old attacking midfielder was a January transfer window acquisition by Oldham boss, John Sheridan.

Since arriving in League One Obadeyi has made eleven appearances in total, making his debut in Oldham's 1-0 victory over Chesterfield United.

To date, the midfielder's two goals have both helped Oldham pick up points, with his goals coming in a victory on the road at Northampton Town and a 1-1 draw against promoted Sheffield United.
