Oldham Athletic manager Lee Johnson has apologised to supporters after his side's 4-0 loss at home to Yeovil Town.

The Latics sat in the play-off places going into the game having lost just once in 15 League One matches.

It was Oldham's heaviest home defeat since February 2011, when Peterborough beat them 5-0, and was also Johnson's first loss to father Gary - after beating him in their first encounter.

"An awful performance. I can only humbly apologise," he said on Twitter.external-link

The 33-year-old added: "I have read all your comments and take them all on board."

After their previous league game, a 3-0 derby win over Rochdale, Johnson spoke about the progress he believed his side had been making, but they still look on course to end the season above the 15th-placed finish of last term.

Johnson is in his first managerial appointment at the Latics after being appointed boss in March 2013 at the age of 31.
