Oldham Athletic manager Darren Kelly has promised fans his side will play a more attacking brand of football.

The Latics have scored three goals in the first four League One games but are unbeaten with a win and three draws.

"We wanted to be expansive and creative but yet it hasn't worked yet," Kelly, 36, told BBC Radio Manchester.

"It's a matter of you, the supporters, buying into what we're trying to do because it will come good. I've no doubt it will click into place."

Kelly, who became Oldham boss in May, is certain Oldham can display their attacking capabilities at Boundary Park in the coming weeks.

"To be honest I'm frustrated in the fact that in training we look supreme at doing this - the quality that goes into the box, the quality of the finishing," he added.

"We just need to take that into the games, but again we'll work continually hard to put that right.

"It is a working process and no doubt in the weeks ahead you'll see what we're about especially in that final third."
