Oldham won for the first time in five and manager Paul Dickov put the victory down to the fact his side had cut out the errors they had been making.

Latics beat Swindon 2-0 with a great strike from Chris Taylor and a late penalty from Dale Stephens.

‘We knew beforehand this would be a tough battle because we have watched Swindon and they are one of the best sides in the division,’ said Dickov.

‘I’m absolutely delighted we performed as we did and kept a clean sheet, especially after we lost our last two games.

‘The lads showed how much they want to work for each other and how much desire they have to succeed. Swindon have got the division’s best striker in Charlie Austin but our two centre-backs, Neal Trotman and Reuben Hazell, were excellent.

‘As a team everyone did their job and, without being outstanding, we showed the work-rate to get ourselves a very pleasing result.

‘Too many times this season I have been talking about individual mistakes costing us but we cut out the errors and dug in really well.’
