Furman Back For Desperate Oldham

South African international midfielder Dean Furman is in contention to play for his English club at the weekend.

Furman has only trained once with the Latics since his return to the League One side from international duty at the African Cup of Nations.

While South Africa stumbled at the quarter-final hurdle leaving the host nation frustrated, Furman emerged from the tournament with his head held high.

And he has surely returned to Oldham’s desperate league campaign in confident mood, after his classy and assured midfield displays for Bafana Bafana, which did not go unnoticed by South Africa’s notoriously impatient football supporters.

It remains unclear if Oldham skipper Furman will start in the team’s must-win match against MK Dons.

Caretaker manager Tony Philliskirk whill asses the Cape Town-born player’s fitness before making his decision whether or not he will start.

Oldham badly need their skipper to hit the ground running, as they are mired in a relegation battle, and cannot afford to drop into the penury of League Two.

Furman also has Oldham’s FA Cup 5th round match at home to Premier League highfliers Everton to look forward to later this month, but for now, game time and three league points are surely at the top of his agenda.
