Oldham finally managed to find the net last night against Sheffield Wednesday at Boundary Park, twice in fact. Pity the Owls got three though.

This latest defeat means that Latics have now gone eight games without a win and that play off place we were once hoping to secure now seems a lifetime away.

Chris Sedgwick helped himself to two of the goals, including the winner after it looked like the two teams might have been sharing a couple of points.

Oldham were two down after just 13 minute a they made an awful start to the game. The first came after three minutes when a short corner went out to Gary Teal who sent a cross to the far post and Mark Beevers headed home from six yards.

Teal was credited with an assist for the second goal that was bundled in by Sedgwick as the Oldham defence remained static.

But on 22 minutes Latics had a goal back when Filipe Morais sent in a shot from 25 yards that beat the keeper with the help of a deflection.

2-1 became 2-2 just before the break when Morais set up Dale Stephens who smashed the ball into the top corner from outside the box.

But just seven minutes into the second half, Wednesday got what proved to be the winner when Tommy Spurr crossed for Sedgwick to grab his second at the far post.
