Way gets ready for last day dramas
YORK assistant boss Darren Way believes Yeovil Town fans are in for a rollercoaster ride to the end of the season after they breathed life into their flagging League One survival hopes with a stoppage time winner.
The Glovers dominated the first half but trailed 1-0 at the break after Carl Winchester struck from close range for the Latics.
In the second half they quickly drew level when Joel Grant tapped in the rebound after Jake Kean kept out a brilliant longrange shot from Adam Morgan.
But it looked like the home side would be force to settle for a draw until Grant burst into the area in the 92nd minute and the ball ran loose for James Hayter to fire home.
"With the situation we're in it could take until the last kick of the last day of the season to decide what happens to us,” said Way.
"We know it's not going to be easy but we've seen great escapes before and we're geared up for what could be an emotional rollercoaster.
"We'll stay levelheaded and focused and even when James Hayter scored the winner so late in the game, I was still looking at what we could do tactically to make sure we didn't concede.
"It was a great win today and the players really deserve it because it's not easy being bottom of the table and they've shown great character."
Oldham missed out on the chance to close to within a point of the playoffs and were left fuming after having a goal ruled out for a foul after Hayter struck for Yeovil.
The Latics played the last ten minutes with ten men after Brian Wilson was sent off.
Caretaker manager Dean Holden said: "It was a tough one to take.We gave away two sloppy goals and didn't help ourselves today.
"We shot ourselves in the foot with those two goals but we have to take the defeat on the chin and move forward.
"It possibly was two yellows for Brian's sending off but I don't really want to get involved with the referee to be honest.
"But with the goal that we had disallowed at the end it wasn't a foul.” Jake Kean kept Oldham in the game with saves from Stephen Arthurworrey and Gozie Ugwu before Athletic went ahead through Winchester. But Yeovil levelled when Kean pushed Morgan's effort on to the post and Grant was on hand to net.
Wilson was booked after a flare-up with Josh Sheehan and sent off when he fouled Morgan.
Yeovil made the extra man count as Grant set up Hayter to stab the ball under Kean. There was still time for Oldham to level from a Mike Jones corner, but the effort was ruled out for a foul on Scott Loach.
