24 October 2018

Lang on target with wonder goal for Oldham Athletic, whilst Cole netted in a 2-2 draw for Burton Albion.

  • Loan Update: Callum Lang, Devante Cole, Jamie Walker and Joe Piggott feature in midweek action.
  • Lang and Cole on target as Oldham Athletic win and Burton Albion draw.
  • Walker involved as Peterborough United close the gap at the top of Sky Bet League One.

Callum Lang - Oldham Athletic

With his Oldham Athletic side already 1-0 courtesy of a Jonathan Benteke goal, Callum Lang sealed the Latics' victory over Cheltenham Town with a wonder goal, as he shrugged off an initial challenge, turned on the edge of the area, evaded two further challenges and found the bottom left corner for 2-0. Watch the goal below!



The win moved Oldham into 12th in the Sky Bet League Two table on 20 points, now just four behind Tranmere Rovers in seventh and the final play-off spot.

Devante Cole - Burton Albion

Striker Devante Cole scored with his first touch from the bench in Burton Albion's 2-2 draw away at Portsmouth, levelling the game after Oli Hawkins' opener for the hosts.



Jake Hesketh put the Brewers in front four minutes later, only for Matt Clarke to peg Pompey level at Fratton Park within five minutes.

The point for Burton has them 15th in Sky Bet League One on 18 points, seven clear of the relegation zone and seven points from the play-offs... it also helped out Cole's Latics team mate Jamie Walker and Peterborough United, as we find out next.

Jamie Walker - Peterborough United

Centre back Rhys Bennett scored the crucial goal as Peterborough won 1-0 at home to Fleetwood Town on Tuesday evening, the defender netting in the 52nd minute for the Posh as Jamie Walker featured for the full 90 minutes.

The victory closed the gap at the top of Sky Bet League One to four points after Portsmouth's draw against Burton and keeps Peterborough one point above Sunderland who sit third.

Joe Piggott - Morecambe FC

Development Squad striker Joe Piggott featured for the final 10 minutes of Morecambe's 1-0 home defeat to Mansfield Town, with Neal Bishop netting the crucial goal for the Stags shortly after the half an hour mark.

The loss leaves Morecambe three points above the relegation zone in Sky Bet League Two on 13 points in 20th place.
