Oldham Athletic manager John Sheridan has described Tuesday evening’s win over Bristol Rovers as a “magnificent result.”
A late Eoin Doyle header ensured the traveling Latics fans went home happy after Sheridan’s men were pegged back to 2-2 in the last 10 minutes of the game.
Speaking after the match, the gaffer said: “It’s a big relief, again we made it a lot harder than what it should have ended up.
“I’m just chuffed to bits for the players and supporters, they’ve travelled down tonight, full credit to them for coming and I’m just chuffed to bits that we’ve got the first win tonight.
“I thought we deserved it, I thought they started bright, they're a good team at home, they give you problems and they make you defend, but I thought once we got into the game the midfield were getting a lot of joy.
“I thought probably the best spell we’ve had was the five or ten minutes just after half time, I thought we were top draw, it was a great goal from Jack [Byrne].
“We should have seen the game out a lot better than what we did but I’m chuffed to bits, to go 2-2 and after what happened Saturday, it’s another great goal from [Eoin] Doyle.
“We’ve been biting at the bit to get a result and we’ve come to a tough place and got one.
“It’s all down to the players, full credit to the players, it’s a magnificent result.”
