Colchester United 0-0 Oldham Athletic

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.
