After facing Sturm Graz and SC Paderborn while away in Austria, Neil Lennon’s side took on Morecambe in their last outing on Friday night in what was their first match on English soil.

ONE TO WATCH
Following two seasons in Scotland with St Johnstone, fan-favourite Lee Croft returned to Boundary Park for his fourth stint with the Oldham Athletic earlier this summer.



Coming through the ranks at Manchester City, the former England youth international enjoyed his first spell with the Latics when sent out on loan during the 2004/05 season, prior to a permanent move to Norwich City in 2006.

Signing for Derby County in 2009, the winger later spent time on loan at Huddersfield Town, St Johnstone and Oldham before finishing the 2012/13 season with the Latics following the cancellation of his Derby contract, where his efforts saw him pick up the fans’ Player of the Year award.

Having re-joined St Johnstone in November 2013, Croft now re-signs for Oldham hoping to enjoy the same success as his previous stints.
