Oldham notched their first victory of the season thanks to Matt Smith's winner at Scunthorpe.

Substitute Smith sealed the win for the Latics when he headed home Filipe Morais' free-kick.

David Mellor had given the visitors an early lead from James Wesolowski's pass before Chris Dagnall levelled with a superb individual effort.

Visiting defender Jean-Yves Mvoto was sent off in injury time but the Iron were unable to capitalise.


Oldham Athletic manager Paul Dickov told BBC Radio Manchester:

"(The win) was very important as the one thing I didn't want to do after the first two league games was panic.

"I don't leave players out easily but I felt after Saturday we needed to go back to basics and be more solid.

"The one thing I will say about the boys I left out was their attitude was fantastic."
