DROP OF SHERI IS KEY FOR OLDHAM
JOHN Sheridan is back at Oldham – and confident of hauling the Latics out of the League One drop zone.
Sheridan last managed at Boundary Park in 2009, having spent six years there at the end of his playing career, and returned to replace David Dunn.
He took control of an Oldham side five points from safety, but the 51-year-old believes the club has everything it needs to climb the table between now and the end of the season.
“Yes, it will be tough, but I wouldn’t have come here if I thought we didn’t have a chance of staying up,” said Sheridan.
“I do believe I can keep them in this league as we have got some good players and they’ve been playing some decent stuff.
“I’m delighted to be back as it’s a privilege to have this opportunity. I feel I have grown up a lot since I was previously here.
“I always thought I was successful when I was last here as we were always fighting to get out of the division during my time.
“I’ll be trying to get the team back to those days.”
Dunn, sacked after 20 games in charge, said:“I had hoped to have been given the opportunity to strengthen the squad during the transfer window.”
