Sammie Szmodics
Sammie Szmodics scored four goals in League One last season for Colchester

Midfielder Sammie Szmodics hit the inside of the post as Colchester United had to settle for a draw with Oldham.

The unbeaten Latics went close through Jonathan Forte's fierce shot and skipper Liam Kelly's long-range effort in a below-par first half.

Colchester improved after the break, Joe Edwards' volley and Darren Ambrose's shot going just off-target.

Szmodics found the woodwork with his sliding effort while U's keeper Elliot Parish made a superb late double save.
