Latics earn FA Cup TV date

Oldham are set to receive an FA Cup windfall after their clash with Liverpool was selected for live television coverage.

Brendan Rodgers' men head to Boundary Park on Sunday, January 27th for a 4pm kick-off before the ITV1 cameras.

A statement on Latics' official website confirmed the club will receive a 135,850 "facility fee".

Paul Dickov's League One outfit earned the plum tie after shocking Championship Nottingham Forest 3-2 at the weekend.

The two sides met in the third round last season, with Robbie Simpson putting Oldham ahead at Anfield before Liverpool ran out 5-1 winners.

Former Huddersfield and Coventry forward Simpson also bagged a second-half brace at the City Ground on Saturday.
