Wild re­mains un­beaten as Lat­ics held at home

Manchester Evening News - - SPORT -

PETE Wild main­tained his un­beaten record as Old­ham boss as they fought out a goal­less draw at home to For­est Green Rovers.

The Lat­ics, fresh from their FA Cup gi­antkilling of Premier League Ful­ham, are now 11th in League Two, five points be­hind Rovers who oc­cupy the fi­nal play-off place.

And Old­ham could have se­cured all three points in the 86th minute when Ge­varo Ne­po­mu­ceno forced a smart save from James Mont­gomery.

For­est Green al­most struck in the first two min­utes when Tahvon Camp­bell’s header was cleared off the line by de­fender Ge­orge Ed­mund­son.

Ge­orge Wil­liams wasted a clear open­ing, fir­ing straight at Lat­ics goal­keeper Daniel Iversen, while Reece Brown’s shot some­how hit both the cross­bar and the post be­fore re­bound­ing to safety.

Old­ham came to life and made half-chances for French duo Mo­hamed Maouche and Mo­hamad Sylla, while Wil­liams was twice de­nied by Iversen at the other end.

The Lat­ics keeper also kept out Carl Winch­ester be­fore Rovers brought on Chris­tian Doidge, whose loan spell at Bolton was re­cently cut short amid a dis­pute be­tween the clubs.

Lat­ics now travel to strug­gling Mac­cles­field Town on Satur­day.

Old­ham’s Cal­lum Lang sees his ef­fort saved
