MATCH REPORT: Latics Exit Lancashire Senior Cup

18 September 2018

Oldham Athletic bow out in the first round of the Lancashire Senior Cup after a defeat at home to Rochdale.

Jordan Williams opened the scoring for the visitors after being played through on goal by Daniel Adshead and he lofted it over Zeus De La Paz.

Adshead was provider once again moments later as he released Inman Bradden who slotted it into the bottom corner.

Ishmael Miller had a chance to pull one back after some good play by Max Norman down the left, but Rochdale goalkeeper Brendan Moore saved well.

Williams made it three on the counter after Luke Matheson found the forward inside the six-yard box to tap home.

Williams completed his hat-trick shortly after half time as he found himself running through on the counter attack and he finished past substitute Ewan McFarlane.

Bradden grabbed his second, tapping home from a couple of yards out before Williams got his fourth after taking it round McFarlane.

Jose Baxter almost got on the scoresheet, but Moore again saved well at his feet to turn the ball away for a corner.

Harrison Hopper completed the scoring from over 30 yards out into an open net after McFarlane had rushed out to clear the initial danger.
