Midfielder Dannie Bulman has spoken to the media ahead of Saturday's visit of Oldham Athletic to the People's Pension Stadium.

"We are raring the go and it's a perfect opportunity to get three points on the board after a good couple of games away from home," the midfielder said. 

"After our poor away form, to come away from two tough games at Bury and Swindon with four points is a massive boost for us. There is a real belief in this squad now that we can beat anyone and that must start with Oldham. They are a good side and their manager has done a good job on a temporary basis."

Bulman was on the score sheet in the corresponding fixture back at the start of September, before Gabriele Cioffi had been appointed Head Coach, one of two goals the 40-year-old has scored this season.

"We we really unlucky back in Oldham. To go there without a manager and being coached by two of the lads (Jimmy Smith and Filipe Morais), we played really well and I think on another day we would have got at least a point. The late goal was a real sucker punch for us, but we showed our mettle by going to Lincoln the following week and winning,"

Oldham have had a two week break following the postponement of their fixture last week, but Bulman does not believe this gives them the advantage.

"You can look at it two ways. They haven't played for two weeks so could be off the boil, but on the other hand, that's an extra week they've had to prepare for this game. They could be more fit and they've had time to regroup after a run of defeats. To be honest, we're two very similar sides in terms of league position and I think it'll be a very close game."
