FA Cup Preview: Oldham - Everton

Caretaker Oldham manager Tony Philliskirk may be without fourth-round hero Matt Smith (shoulder), as the big striker is touch-and-go ahead of the clash with Everton at Boundary Park. He has not played since the FA Cup win over Liverpool, and he failed to even make the bench for Saturday's 3-1 win over MK Dons.

Fellow frontman Robbie Simpson (hamstring) is in a race against time to be fit for the glamor tie; however, Connor Murray (knee), Cristian Montano (thigh) and Paul Murray (cup-tied) are all out.

Everton boss David Moyes is without Tony Hibbert (calf) and Seamus Coleman (hip). Victor Anichebe (calf) limped out of the defeat at Manchester United last time out, and may be rested in favor of out-of-sorts Nikica Jelavic.

  • Oldham won the last meeting between these two sides when Gary McDonald's thunderbolt earned the Latics a surprise 1-0 win at Goodison Park in the FA Cup third round in 2008.
  • The Latics have just three wins in their last 12 games; however, two of those wins have come in the last three games.
  • The Boundary Park club is currently in the League One relegation zone, with 30 points from 31 games.
  • Everton has not beaten Oldham in the FA Cup since 1912. The two sides have met 40 times altogether, and have 14 victories apiece.
  • The Toffees are unbeaten in their last seven away matches in the FA Cup.
  • David Moyes (right) has seen his team score seven goals in this season's competition, with all the strikes coming from different players.
