Oldham manager Paul Dickov was more than pleased after watching his side bounce back from the 6-0 drubbing against Southampton, to beat Plymouth 2-0 at the weekend.

It was a poor first half, but the Latics settled down to the task in the second period and won the game with two strikes, one from Dale Stephens early on and then another from Oumare Tounkara with 18 minutes left on the clock.

Dickov told PA sport: ‘It was a great reaction to the Southampton match and I’m very proud of all the team. I would not pick out one of them, I thought the whole team played well throughout and I’m proud of every one of them.

‘We had a good chat at length on Wednesday about Tuesday. We wanted to talk about it and then put it to bed as quickly as possible and that’s what we’ve done.

‘This was the type of reaction we were looking for and we came here with a plan to attack and that’s what we did and we got a result.

‘One thing I have got – regardless of win lose or draw – is a young group of boys who are willing to run their socks off for me. If they continue doing that we will pick up results.’
