York 1-1 Latics

20 February 2024

Latics had to settle for a point in Yorkshire as they played out a 1-1 draw with York City.

The hosts started the better of two sides, but couldn’t make it count, and it was Latics who took the lead after making their way into the game.

That advantage didn’t last, however, and York equalised through Will Davies nine minutes later, seeing Oldham take a point home.

York had a number of good chances during the opening plays of the match, with Billy Chadwick being involved in most of them.

The first saw him produce a brilliant diagonal ball to let Charlie Allen through, but Hudson got to it just ahead of him, thwarting a fantastic opportunity.

The next chance saw a cross played towards the far post, with Will Sutton making a vital interception to deny its recipient being Chadwick, who would have certainly scored had the ball fallen to him.

After that, the game calmed down with no real chances being created, although Latics had worked their way into the game, and had their rightful share of the ball in the final third.

Oldham definitely stepped it up a gear after the break, and looked in a much better position to open the scoring, leading to the best chance of the game up to that point.

Fondop made an overlapping run against Garner inside the box, Joe played it forward for him, with Mike hitting the underside of the bar from a tight angle.

Devarn Green was brought on in place of Oliver Hammond, with Micky Mellon looking to inject some fresh attacking legs into the line up.

On the hour mark, Athletic took the lead, with the move starting from skipper, Liam Hogan’s long ball.

His long ball forward caused Sykes-Kenworthy to emerge from his goal in an attempt to claim the ball, but Mikey beat him to it, heading the ball over him, before it bounced into the goal.

The advantage didn’t last though, with Davies making final contact with Will Smith’s header to divert it past Hudson.

That blew the game wide open, in a match where both sides wanted, and needed to win, and that was reflected in how they traded spells in possession in the final third, but no real chances of note came.

The best chance came from a rare Hudson mistake, who dropped the ball from Amos’ cross, but thankfully, John-Lewis couldn’t checkout, and fired his effort wide.
