Latics 2-2 Notts County

1 January 2023

Oldham rescued a point following a hectic second-half at Boundary Park.

After a dull first-half, Notts County took the lead four minutes after the break.

Latics responded just moments later, when Nathan Sheron capitalised on Sam Slocombe’s mistake, before substitute Cedwyn Scott gave the away side the lead again.

Oldham pushed for another equaliser, and when Peter Clarke was fouled in the box, Joe Nuttall converted the penalty.

Notts County had almost all of the ball during opening minutes, but failed to do much with their possession.

Peter Clarke nearly got on the end of Mark Kitching’s cross, but he was inches away from making contact with the ball.

Aaron Nemane supplied a cross for Macaully Langstaff, who tapped home not long after the restart.

Just like the reverse fixture, Latics responded immediately, when Slocombe was caught in possession well outside his box, and Sheron put the ball into an empty net.

Cedwyn Scott came on after the equaliser, and put Luke Williams’ side back ahead, when Nemane found him in the box, getting his second assist of the game.

Benny Couto and Timmy Abraham came on with 30 minutes to go, as Latics looked to equalise once again.

P. Clarke was fouled following a free-kick which was won by Abraham, and the referee pointed to the spot.

Penalty specialist Joe Nuttall sent Slocombe the wrong way, scoring his second in as many games for Latics.

With ten minutes to go, Notts County piled the pressure on, Matty Palmer’s free-kick caused a scramble in the box, but Norman did well to claim the ball, getting clattered in the process.

Abraham had the chance to win it right at the death, Couto darted in the box, gave the ball to him, who hit the bar from close-range.

Oldham: Norman, J. Clarke, Hogan, Sheron, Tollitt (Rooney 74), Fondop (Abraham 67), Kitching, Peck (Couto 58), Chapman, P. Clarke, Nuttall.
