Callum Lang featured for the full 90 minutes in the Sky Bet League Two encounter, but it was Sol Campbell's side who went home happy.

Urko Vera gave the Latics the lead inside the first minute from the penalty spot, but Macc forwards Harry Smith and Scott Wilson turned the game on its head to secure three vital points.

Things ended bitterly for Oldham, with Mohammed Maouche sent off in second half stoppage time.
