Oldham Athletic 1-0 Crewe Alexandra

Jonathan Forte's winning goal for Oldham Athletic against already-relegated Crewe Alexandra confirmed their safety in League One.

Crewe had early chances through two Marcus Haber headers and Callum Saunders failed to score against Latics keeper Joel Coleman in a one-on-one.

Oldham's Curtis Main had a volley blocked before Forte's strike from eight yards bounced in off the post.

Crewe's Brad Inman's curling effort went close but was saved by Coleman.

Oldham sit 17th in the table with four home wins in a row, while Crewe are at the foot of the table with no win in 15 games.
