Harry Kewell previews Oldham Athletic clash and discusses Jon Stead fitness


Harry Kewell has admitted that Oldham Athletic's forward line will be a "challenge" for Notts County's defence.

The two sides meet up on Tuesday night in a League Two game rescheduled due to international commitments on the Latics' part.

In his press conference, Kewell also spoke about individual players such as Richard Duffy, Jon Stead and Ben Hall.

“It’s going to be a challenge for my back four,” the Australian told the official Notts site.

“They have two big, aggressive strikers and tricky wingers who cross the ball well but aren’t scared to cut inside for a shot at goal.

“They aren’t in the best form but they’re strong in a 4-4-2 or a 4-2-3-1 so it’s important we win the midfield battle and create - and take - chances.”

On the players, Kewell said: “Duffy is a player with great experience and he’s a big character at this club so it’s great to have him in contention again.

“We have to be patient with him so we can't rush him back, and the same goes for Steady who missed Saturday’s match as a precautionary measure.

“Jon faces a fitness test ahead of Oldham so we’ll wait and see if he’s available, while we should have Ben Hall back in training next week which is excellent news.”
