Lang Looking To Continue Form

16 November 2018

Striker Callum Lang is hoping that he can keep chipping in with the goals as Oldham Athletic take on Cambridge United on Saturday.

Lang has hit four goals this season including the winner at Hampton & Richmond Borough on Monday night, although he says that goal was more for the team which was evident in the celebrations.

“It was a good moment for me, but it was for the team, we worked hard all night and got the result we deserved in the end and you could see it in the celebrations.” He said.

“There's a big spirit in the changing room, obviously it's been tough, and we haven't got the results we've wanted recently, so we're trying to show we can do and it's starting to come together I believe.”

Manager Frankie Bunn has called for his team to start taking their chances in recent weeks and Lang echoes that calling.

Lang himself even admits that he is one of the culprits who has missed a few chances in previous games.

“It's been frustrating like the other night has been similar to how it's been for a good few weeks, even the Notts County game on another day we take three points.” He commented.

“I missed a few chances myself in that game and there was a lot of chances in the game where we should be scoring, but the week before we score and then let too many in at the other end.

“It's just going wrong in different places in different times, but it's now coming together we feel we're more solid at the back and that we can score goals, so hopefully we can keep on pushing on.

“You can see from the past few games it looks like it's turning, and we've got a lot more confidence in our play from the amount of chances we've been created.”

Cambridge come into the game off the back of three straight league victories, however they did lose to non-league Guiseley in the Emirates FA Cup last Saturday.

Nevertheless, Lang still expects it to be a tough test for the side, but it’s a test Latics believe they can get the win from.

“It's going to be a tough one after their last game, they'll want to come out and show what they can do.

“We've heard they can be dangerous on the attack, so we've just got to match them and if we play how we've been playing we should be ok.”

Latics have had to do a lot of travelling over the past month and Lang is looking forward to getting back in front of the Boundary Park faithful on Saturday.

“It's definitely good to be back at home, we've done a lot of travelling and it's been tiring, but we've got a tough patch out of the way and to get a game in front of the home fans is a nice reward.”
