LOAN REPORT: CALLUM LANG GRABS A GOAL AND AN ASSIST IN MAN OF THE MATCH DISPLAY

1 April 2019

Lang on target for the 12th time this season, whilst Da Silva Lopes and Gillingham edge closer to safety.

  • Loan Update: Four of Latics' loan players in action on Saturday 30 March.
  • Callum Lang scored and set one up in Oldham Athletic's 2-0 win against Grimsby Town.
  • Leo Da Silva Lopes played 90 minutes in Gillingham's 1-1 draw against Rochdale.

Callum Lang - Oldham Athletic

Life after Paul Scholes started in style for Development Squad striker Callum Lang, who set up Oldham Athletic's opener and headed in the second as the Latics won 2-0 at home against Grimsby Town in Sky Bet League Two.

Lang's cross from the right was diverted in by Chris O'Grady for 1-0 three minutes before half time at Boundary Park, before he put the result beyond doubt when he beat everyone in the air to head home from a corner in the 77th minute with his 12th of the season in all competitions.



The Latics now sit 15th in League Two on 51 points, 10 from the play offs with a game in hand on seventh place Exeter City.

Leo Da Silva Lopes - Gillingham

The Gills are slowly but surely edging away from one of the tightest relegation battles in Sky Bet League One history and their point at home to Rochdale marks another on the board during the run-in.

Leo Da Silva Lopes featured for the full 90 minutes in the 1-1 draw, with Mark Byrne on target in first half stoppage time to equaliser following Ian Henderson's opener 10 minutes earlier.

Gillingham are now 13th in the table on 48 points, six points clear of Walsall who sit in 21st.
