Oldham coach Scott Naylor has warned his players not to be complacent when they face Gloucestershire All Golds in Sunday’s Kingstone Press Championship fixture.
Naylor believes the appointment of new coach Steve McCormack, who marked his first game in charge with victory over London Skolars last week, will propel the All Golds forward.
Naylor said: “In his short time at Gloucestershire he will have worked hard to put a lot of structure into their play. They’ll be a different proposition now, as their win in London would indicate.
“He’s a very good coach and he’s proved himself wherever he has been. I’m expecting a very tough game.”
Adam Files is ruled out for Oldham after lasting just six minutes against York City Knights before falling to a knee problem.
But Steve Roper could make his long-awaited Oldham debut as coach Scott Naylor considers his options for the trip south.
All Golds coach McCormack is set to check on the fitness of Danny Fallon, who came off at half time against the Skolars.
