Manager Lee Johnson has said he believes Oldham are on a very positive path at the moment and we extended our unbeaten run to ten games following victory over Walsall yesterday.

A two one win, despite us having to battle back from a goal behind, leaves us on the verge of the play off places and it has been a very positive start to the season.

Speaking to Sky Sports following the game, Johnson beamed.

‘There’s a buzz here at the moment because we’ve got a team the fans can believe in. We have spirit on and off the pitch, which we showed by coming from behind in a very difficult game against a good Walsall side. There were times last season when we were maybe a bit powder puff, but that’s not the case now because we’ve got solid, experienced players on the bench.’

Johnson goes on to say that last season he knows we were relying on seven or so players to be on form consistently and help us through matches, but this season he feels we’ve got 13 or 14 players we can ‘hang our hats on’ and the whole squad he feels are capable of turning games in our favour and we are now consistently doing that.

‘We’re on a good run, which shows we are doing the right thing. The players are taking instructions well, but we can’t get carried away. Maybe we are dark horses for the play offs, but those fifth and sixth places are available to a lot of team – maybe 14 – and the minute you get complacent, you get found out.’

Clearly it’s a message of just keep on keeping on, keep getting the basics right, keep getting the attitude right and whilst not every game will go in our favour and we won’t always get what we deserve from matches, we are being competitive, there is clear progress from last season and we just have to see where that progress takes us as the season unwinds.
