OLDHAM Athletic have announced the final games of their summer schedule, but there are question marks over two home games against Football League opposition.

Newly promoted Wigan Athletic have again agreed to a friendly in preparation for their return to the Championship, with their visit scheduled for July 16 (kick-off 1pm), while Latics are set to host League Two Mansfield Town the following Saturday (kick-off 3pm).

But both fixtures have been met with opposition, with rival supporters showing solidarity with fans of crisis club Oldham amid their ongoing ownership concerns and proposed Boundary Park boycott.

Oldham have already had a planned friendly with Bolton Wanderers cancelled after a backlash which led to the Bolton Wanderers Supporters Trust meeting with Wanderers CEO Neil Hart last month to discuss issues which had been voiced from fans of both clubs.

The game had been pencilled in for July 12, but following the meeting days after the friendly had been announced, Bolton made a U-turn.

A short statement released by the club read: “Wanderers have called off their planned pre-season friendly at Oldham Athletic.

“The Whites were due to go to Boundary Park to face the National League side on Tuesday, July 12.

“However, we are mindful of the reaction of some supporters to the scheduled fixture and will now not be playing the game.

“Wanderers will make alternative arrangements to supplement game-time for Ian Evatt’s squad as they build up to the 2022/23 season.”

There has been a similar response from supporters on both sides after the latest friendlies against Wigan and Mansfield were announced.

Wigan fan Pete Rowbottom tweeted: "PLEASE NOBODY ATTEND THIS GAME!!!!!!! I've a mate who's been a season ticket holder here for a long time and I've followed the situation, imagine if it was us (again) stay away and do them a favour

"Needs to be called off, not sure our owners realise how bad playing this game is for our PR, we as a community club, and a club that almost folded must stand 110 per cent behind our brothers at Oldham."

Of the Mansfield friendly, Roger Winter tweeted: "Can I appeal to EVERY supporter of #mtfc to boycott Boundary Park. Do not go to the friendly. Oldham Athletic is in crisis and the owners are killing our club.

"Get the friendly with #oafc called off to protect our club or at the very least get it moved to #mtfc".

One Mansfield fan tweeted the club's chief executive, David Sharpe, and said: "A lot of Oldham (fans) are wanting the Stags game at Boundary Park to be cancelled or at Stags' ground, if we was (sic) in the same situation we would want the same."

As things stand, Latics' pre-season programme will include six pre-season friendlies against Football League and non-league opposition as John Sheridan prepares for the club's first National League campaign.

There will be a mixture of home and away fixtures in the warm-up games, starting with a trip to Northern Premier League Premier Division side Bamber Bridge on Saturday, July 9 (kick-off 3pm), having reported back for training at the end of June.

Their other four friendlies are all away from home, kicking off at Premier League North Premier Division side Bamber Bridge on July 9 (kick-off 3pm), with trips to Bradford (Park Avenue) on July 19 (kick-off 7.45pm), Radcliffe on July 26 (kick-off 7.45pm), ending with a game at National League North side AFC Fylde on July 30 (kick-off 3pm).
