DAVIS Keillor-Dunn is confident Latics will be ready for the hectic schedule to come.

Oldham head to Forest Green tonight having not played since the 23-year-old’s goal sealed a 2-1 victory against Salford on January 30.

This evening’s game at the New Lawn now begins a run that sees Harry Kewell’s side play every Tuesday and Saturday until March 27.

The period covers 12 of Latics’ remaining 20 games and Keillor-Dunn insists the players can’t wait to get back to action and embrace the challenge ahead.

“It's a nightmare because you want to go out there and put a few wins together to climb the league,” he said of the recent pause.

“It’s obviously frustrating because we've come off the back of two good home wins in Newport and Salford, so it was good to see our home form improve.

“Everyone was a little bit excited about that to keep improving and then it's all been put on hold due to the weather.

“We've already had a lot of challenges especially with the rules we have to follow for the virus to make sure everyone keeps safe and healthy and then the difficult weather conditions come and is another thing, but you've just got to keep focused and keep doing the right things by training well.

“It's been a great standard and with the new additions coming in the boys are getting to know each other a lot more by having two full weeks of training.

“It just feels good around the club and we know the games will start to come thick and fast so we have to be ready.”

Zak Dearnley, George Blackwood and Ben Garrity have all been battling injuries with the 17 days without a game giving them chance to rehab, while the rest of the squad now head into the hectic schedule refreshed.

“The one positive to this has been the boys who have had little niggles have had time to recover properly,” Keillor-Dunn said.

“I was speaking to Ben, he’s one of the lads having trouble with his ankles and said it’s given him more time to get to full fitness.

“So in terms of that, it's been really good to get the boys back in training at full strength.

"We know it’ll be a busy and hectic finish but should be exciting too. It's about getting everybody in the right condition to deal with the demands for two but maybe even three games in a week together if we have more games called off for whatever reason.

“There’s going to be a lot of rotation so all the boys need to be fit and raring to go which we are.”
