Oldham to pick from 20

OLDHAM will pick from 20 for Sunday’s important clash with Toulouse Olympique at Bower Fold, Stalybridge (kick-off 3pm).

They will comprise the 17 who played in last Monday’s 30-24 win at Rochdale plus Ben Davies, Danny Grimshaw and Steven Nield.

Adam Neal, who was thought to have a chance after a nine-week lay-off with a broken jaw, ruled himself out after a chat with the physio, said coach Scott Naylor.

He added: “Apart from our long-term injury victims everyone else is fine.

“A lot of people believe Toulouse are good enough to be in the Middle 8s so we know we’ve got a tough game ahead of us.

“They’re the best team in this group of eight by a country mile, but we’ve beaten them once and we’re getting better, tougher and mentally stronger all the time.

“We’ve got to regard it like a cup final and give ’em everything we’ve got. I would rather play them here than at their place, that’s for sure.”

Squad (no particular order): Clay, Tyson, Leatherbarrow, Hewitt, Gee, Spencer, Thompsn, Adamson, Bent, Davies, Burke, Hughes, Grimshaw, Ward, Pearce-Paul, Adebiyi, Nield, Wilkinson, Hooley, Morris.

Prices slashed

Fans are reminded that under-16s go FREE and that £5 has been slashed off all other admission prices in a bid to boost the attendance. The only stipulation is that fans must fill in a personal information sheet and leave it on the turnstiles.

They can also be acquired in advance from Whitebank, from Gymetc next to Bower Fold, from Wetherspoons pub in the Society Rooms in Stalybridge or from Corals, Stalybridge.
