Oldham coach Scott Naylor has named his squad for the weekend’s home game with Sheffield Eagles, and he has warned to supporters to expect a tough game.
He has also intimated that he expects a better performance from his players than he saw in the club’s preseason friendlies.
“Eagles have signed some quality players in the past 14 days, so it’s going to be a tough game and we’ll have to put in a performance,” said Naylor.
“We didn’t in the friendlies, but I’m confident we will on Sunday and then we’ll see where we end up.
“There is nothing wrong with our quality, effort and attitude, but we need to be more consistent and to play with a bit of intelligence. If we can do that we won’t be so far off.”
Dany Langtree and Danny Grimshaw return to the squad after injury problems.
Turner, Clay, Chisholm, Leatherbarrow, Hewitt, Joy, Gee, Neal, Spencer, Langtree, Burke, Owen, Hughes, Grimshaw, Ward, Gill, Egodo plus dual-reg personnel.
