Athletic Knocked Out Of Lancashire Senior Cup

16 November 2016

Oldham Athletic are out of the Lancashire Senior Cup after a 2-1 defeat to Blackburn Rovers last night.

Latics got off to a good start, taking the lead on 18 minutes as Calaum Jahraldo-Martin swept home after a promising run.

However, just before half time, Ryan Nyambe was pulled back in the penalty area and Connor Mahoney sent Chris Kettings the wrong way from the penalty spot to equalise.

Rovers’ winning goal came in the final 15 minutes as Connor Thomson’s solo run and shot beat Kettings from the edge of the area.

Athletic huffed and puffed for an equaliser but unfortunately were defeated and knocked out of the Lancashire Senior Cup at the second round stage.
