Andy Williams has scored four goals in his past five games

Striker Andy Williams scored twice for Doncaster as they secured victory at Oldham in League One.

Williams grabbed the opener when he collected Craig Alcock's pass and fired into the top corner.

After Latics midfielder Tim Dieng's header hit the bar, Williams scored his 12th of the season on the stroke of half-time after a goalmouth scramble.

Rhys Murphy turned home Mark Yeates' cross late on as Oldham pushed but they failed to produce an equaliser.

Oldham manager David Dunn told BBC Radio Manchester:

"I thought we controlled most of the game.

"In terms of chances created, we were pretty good.

"Once again we struggled and conceded two sloppy goals which isn't good enough for us.

"I can't criticise the lads for the effort and passion they showed. They stayed in the game, they kept going and working until the last whistle but we found ourselves with too much to do again."
