Oldham Athletic have offered free entry to all fans for their rearranged League One fixture against Peterborough United on Tuesday, 24 January.

The original game was postponed on 26 November because of a frozen pitch.

The offer from the Latics is for both home and away supporters visiting SportsDirect.com Park.

Oldham, who are next to bottom of the table, three points from safety, have just exited a transfer embargo and reappointed John Sheridan as manager.

"We want as many supporters to welcome back the manager to the football club as he takes his place on the sidelines for the first time," said a club statement.

Supporters are, however, being invited to make a donation to a local charity.

Brentford were the first team to offer free entry for a league game in England when they played Peterborough in 2001.
