Revisiting Boundary Park.
Tranmere’s last five times at Oldham Athletic.
Rovers visit Boundary Park for the second time this season on Tuesday night, this time in a League Two encounter. There have been many meetings between both clubs, the Latics coming out on top with 36 to 34 wins and the narrow difference in quality is shown perfectly by the past five games even though Rovers come out on top in that comparison.
The past five games? Two Oldham wins, one via penalties. Three Tranmere wins, all 1-0.

The visitors looked to get their second win of the season, following an opening day victory at Prenton Park against Walsall. They seemed to have done this when they went 2-0 up with goals from new signings Sam Foley and Elliott Nevitt. The latter picked up an injury whilst celebrating as problems with advertising boards separating the away fans from the pitch were brought to light. Oldham wouldn’t be beaten without competing themselves though, in fact they wouldn’t be beaten at all on the night. Forward Dylan Bahamboula netted just before the hour mark before a Tom Davies own goal brought the scoreline level. The ninety would soon go onto penalties, the hosts winning and seemingly celebrating with a pitch invasion until another issue was brought to light in the case of their ownership frustrations.

After a poor start to the season, where Mike Jackson was appointed manager following the departure of Micky Mellon, Rovers would go on to have a great period of success as they won five games in a row. This run ended with a win away from home, a narrow win against Oldham Athletic with leading striker James Vaughan netting the crucial goal. It wasn’t too bad a start to Keith Hill’s reign at Rovers but we all know how that ended up.

The final few months of the 2018/19 campaign were ones of great success for Tranmere, a promotion push happening after a successful winter transfer window where midfield general David Perkins would come to Prenton Park amongst others. A night at Boundary Park was too much for Mellon’s men though as Ollie Banks, to name but one, suffered a poor performance against his former employers. The final scoreline would do little to set Tranmere supporters away from the buzzing atmosphere that had been created though as they would stay behind for a while after the last whistle had blown, ‘Tequila’ being introduced to football fans up and down the country.
