Danny Philliskirk
Danny Philliskirk joined Oldham from Coventry in August 2013

Danny Philliskirk's second goal of the season gave Oldham victory over Fleetwood.

The visitors should have taken an early lead but skipper Antoni Sarcevic sent a close-range volley over the crossbar.

The Latics went in front when Rhys Turner flicked on a long ball and Philliskirk finished from 12 yards out.

Lee Croft could have made it more comfortable but missed the target from four yards before home goalkeeper Joel Coleman denied Danny Andrew.

Oldham boss Darren Kelly told BBC Radio Manchester:

"The guys conducted themselves tremendously. They battled hard against a good Fleetwood side.

"It wasn't our best performance but we won. There are games we've played superbly but haven't won.

"I'm absolutely chuffed and delighted with the battling effort of the team.

"The best start you want is six points from two games and I'll take four points from six any day."
