Steve Morison scored a late winner to help Millwall stay in play-off contention.

Millwall kept in the play-off hunt as Steve Morison's late header gave them victory over struggling Oldham.

Lee Gregory's early goal put Millwall ahead, the striker finding the bottom corner from inside the six yard box.

Mike Jones and Rhys Murphy went close for Oldham before the former found the top corner with a free-kick to level.

The Latics twice tested David Forde as they sought a second before Morison headed in Shane Ferguson's cross to give Millwall the points.

They moved up to seventh in the table, only three points outside the play-off places, while Oldham remained 22nd.

Oldham assistant manager Dean Holden told BBC Radio Manchester:

"We know where the issues are, it's both boxes. We're getting caught out too many times defensively, little switches of concentration are killing us.

"We can't be putting in any more work in hours-wise, out on the training pitch trying to put things right. Certainly on balance of the last three performances, we are improving game on game. We need to start backing that up with points.

"We we're up against a huge team at this level. We've gone and competed against them and won battles across the pitch. All you're in control of is your performances and they are improving."
