Callum Lang - Oldham Athletic

It's been an excellent few days for Latics' Development Squad forward Callum Lang, with the 20-year-old striker on target for the second and third time in the space of four days when he netted a double for Oldham Athletic in their 2-0 home win against Tranmere Rovers on Tuesday evening.

Lang, who now has 14 goals for the season, followed up his goal and assist from the weekend's 2-0 win against Grimsby Town, taking his Sky Bet League Two goal tally to 11 for the campaign.

The striker gave Oldham an early lead against Tranmere in the seventh minute with a fine finish into the left corner following a solo run from the left, before doubling his side's advantage in the 61st minute, using his strength to turn the centre half, before firing low into the bottom corner.

Victory for the Latics sees them 12th in League Two on 54 points, seven points behind Exeter City in the final play-off place in seventh and seven points behind sixth place Forest Green Rovers with a game in hand, giving Pete Wild's men an outside chance of making the play-offs.

Lang's double means he has now scored 21 goals in 65 League Two appearances across his loan spells with Morecambe FC and Oldham.
