History of the Huddersfield Town v Oldham Athletic fixture

Huddersfield prepare to entertain Oldham Athletic at Galpharm Stadium on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Terriers are clearly on top, having won 9 and lost only 2 of the 15 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Galpharm Stadium was two seasons ago, in May 2003, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1-1 final scoreline in a League Division Two match.
