Dominic Poleon earned the plaudits on Saturday after his man of the match display earned a point away to high-flying Gillingham.
The striker cooly lifted the ball over Gills goalkeeper Stuart Nelson to level the scores at 2-2 before delivering an inch-perfect cross to the boot of Michael Higdon to put Latics ahead.
However, Poleon, who has two goals in his last three games, believed his side should have held on to the win.
He said: “I think we all put in a shift but again we are disappointed that we didn’t come away with the three points.
“Gillingham have been on a great run and have been pumping teams left, right and centre. For us to come here and take the game to them like we did, it shows how much we have come on since our bad defeat at home. I think we’ve come on leaps and bounds and we just need to get over the line and get three points.
“We just need to keep the performances going and hopefully we’ll get the three points that get us up the table."
The 22-year-old has struck up a good understanding with fellow frontman Michael Higdon and that showed at the weekend.
“We roomed together last night so that might have something to do with it as well but like I’ve said before, I like playing with a big man around me,” he admitted.
"It was a good ball from Higgy for my goal. I repaid him by putting a half decent ball into the box for him to get the third so the partnership is really showing on the pitch so far.”
