MATCH PREVIEW: This weekend Latics travel to Nailsworth to take on Forest Green Rovers for the first game of the Sky Bet League Two 2019/20 campaign.
Our opponents are mainly recognised for being the first 100% vegan football club in the world. They became a 100% vegan club in 2017 because of the huge environmental and animal welfare impacts of livestock farming, as well as to improve player performance and give fans healthier, tastier food on matchdays.
Points were shared in both fixtures last season, 1-1 in August 2018 and 0-0 in January 2019, but both will looking to get three points on the board this time to kick-start the 2019/20 season.
