Footymad preview History of the Oldham Athletic v Tranmere Rovers fixture

Tranmere Rovers face a trip to Oldham Athletic at Boundary Park on Monday evening, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Rovers will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 22 and win only 9 of the 41 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in January 2010, when they played out a goalless draw in a League One match.
