History of the Oldham Athletic v Brentford fixture

Brentford face a trip to Oldham Athletic at Boundary Park on Tuesday evening, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Bees will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 11 and win only 3 of the 20 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in January 2004, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1 - 1 final scoreline in a League Division Two match.
