Dominic Poleon believes his best is yet to come as he hopes to score the goals to keep Latics' unbeaten run alive.
The striker, who signed for the club at 11pm on transfer deadline day, has scored one goal for Latics so far in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy win over Barnsley.
But Poleon admitted that the manager is a big factor in his recent form. He said: "The manager gives you the chance to express yourself and play with freedom.
"He makes sure we know our jobs. You can have some managers that are uptight but here is nice and relaxed and the gaffer gets the best out of his boys."
Latics have already faced Bradford this season and the striker wants to just concentrate on his team's chances: "They are a good side," he commented.
"They get the ball down and pass it but with the players that we have here and the run that we are currently on, we should cause them a few problems."
The 21-year-old has settled well into life at Oldham Athletic and he has put that down to his teammates.
"Sometimes in games you need that whole togetherness of the team, and when it's not going well, it is that which spurs you on to see out a 0-0 or see out a 1-0 victory," said Poleon.
"The team and the staff have been welcoming to me and I'm enjoying it. I think with the team we have got, we are creating chances. Sometimes you need a bit of luck in front of goal but the goals will come and I'm working hard on the training pitch."
