Championship One preview: Oldham v Hemel

Oldham coach Scott Naylor will check on David Cookson and Mo Agoro as they battle to overcome groin injuries ahead of Sunday’s Kingstone Press Championship One clash with Hemel Stags.

The visitors travel without James Howitt, while Jy-Mel Coleman faces a late fitness test to determine his availability.

Hemel coach Troy Perkins said: “Last week I was disappointed with our lack of ball control. We completed 40 per cent of our sets, which makes life tough against anyone.

“We’ve got to hold the ball a bit more and put the opposition defence under pressure.”

He added: “Oldham are one of the favourites to win the league so we know this is going to be a tough fixture, but if we can improve on a few areas from last week then we can have a good shot at them. We went up there last year and only got beat late on, so we’ll travel with a bit of belief in us.”
