Doncaster Rovers vs Oldham Athletic Match Preview
Oldham beat Premier League club Fulham away from home in the previous round of the FA Cup and so a trip to familiar rivals Doncaster should not hold any fears.
Under caretaker manager Pete Wild, the Latics scored twice in the last 15 minutes through a Sam Surridge penalty and Callum Laing to overturn a deficit and win 2-1 at Craven Cottage.
That was a terrific achievement by the League Two side against a club three divisions above them and although they were denied a glamour tie in the ensuing fourth-round draw, Oldham do at least have a realistic chance of making further progress.
It will not be easy, however, against Doncaster who have lost twice to Oldham in their three FA Cup meetings since 2012-13 because Rovers are aiming for the League One play-offs.
Grant McCann is doing an excellent job since replacing Darren Ferguson as Doncaster manager in the summer and his team have plenty of goals in them.
But Oldham, with whom Paul Scholes was again being strongly linked as the next manager at the time of writing, identified a successful formula at Fulham and may just be capable of keeping their Cup hopes alive in South Yorkshire.
