Oldham Athletic v Walsall

Oldham and Walsall both picked up their first point of the League One season through goals from Youssouf M'changama and George Bowerman.

M'changama scored after his 25-yard shot went through David Grof's dive.

Oldham keeper Alex Cisak also made a mistake when he let Jamie Paterson's set-piece to squirm through his hands, only for the ball to drop inches wide.

Walsall were gifted the equaliser when Dean Furman hit a weak backpass and Bowerman intercepted before levelling.

Oldham manager Paul Dickov told BBC Radio Manchester:

"In the first half, I thought we played some good stuff and put a lot of pressure on them. That pressure told in the end.

"We told them to do a similar thing in the second half, not to overplay, but they looked as if they wanted to have a stroll in the park and pass the ball at their pace.

"You can't do that at any level.

"I've told them a few home truths. They're at this level for a reason and the second half has just shown that."
