Scunthorpe 1-2 Oldham

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."
