LOAN REPORT: CALLUM LANG PROVIDES LATE DRAMA AGAINST FULHAM IN THE FA CUP

7 January 2019

Young striker helps Oldham Athletic to Emirates FA Cup upset and Premier League Fulham.

  • The latest from Wigan Athletic's players out on loan across the EFL and National League.
  • Callum Lang scored an 88th minute winner in the Emirates FA Cup against Fulham.
  • Olly Crankshaw involved as Curzon Ashton won 1-0 against York City.

CALLUM LANG

It was an afternoon to remember for Emirates FA Cup upsets on Sunday, with Newport County knocking out former Premier League champions Leicester City and National League side Barnet eliminating Sky Bet Championship side Sheffield United, but it was all eyes on Craven Cottage for Latics loanee Callum Lang, who netted an 88th minute winner to earn his Oldham Athletic a 2-1 victory against the Premier League outfit.



Cup magic was alive in West London, but Pete Wild's Latics had to fight for their moment of glory, coming from behind following Denis Odoi's second half opener.

Oldham's AFC Bournemouth loanee Sam Surridge pulled the Latics level from the penalty spot in the 76th minute, before Lang headed home the match-winner two minutes from time to secure a fourth round spot.



The 20-year-old has now scored eight goals in 30 appearances in all competitionts for Oldham so far this season.

OLIVER CRANKSHAW

After completing his move to Latics from Curzon Ashton late last week, Olly Crankshaw was back on loan with the Nash and involved as his side won 1-0 at home against York City to move seven points clear of the National League North relegation zone.

The winger featured for the full 90 minutes, with Ryan Shenton's goal the difference.

LUKE BURGESS

Development Squad midfielder Luke Burgess was an unused substitute in Barrow AFC's 2-0 away defeat at Havant & Waterlooville in the National League.

Defenders Theo Lewis and Rory Williams hit the target for the hosts, with the Bluebirds down to ten men in the second half following Kyle Jameson's dismissal.

Barrow sit 11th in the table, eight points behind the final play-off place of seventh.
