Pies make tough work of Old ham

A dominant opening from the Magpies should have seen them comfortably wrap this game up before half time; with chances begging and balls agonisingly whizzing past the Oldham goal mouth it looked after 30 minutes it might be one of those nights, thankfully, it was not.

Bishop and Boucauds effectiveness in midfield was a joy to watch, pulling the strings and releasing players at will, it was the aforementioned┬áBoucaud who started the build up to the games only goal, slotting a sublime ball out to Jamal Campbell-Ryce, the pacey winger beating his man and crossing for the simplest of tap-ins for Enoch Showunmi, the big man, who despite putting in a disjointed performance has a platform to build on, once again admitting in a post-match interview he wasn’t at full fitness.

In typical Notts fashion of recent they weren’t able to capitalise on further chances, and predictably after half time Oldham came out to attack, Notts’ freedom in midfield was no longer present and Oldham nearly equalised following a calamitous fumble from Notts keeper Bialkowski, it was left down to Gary Liddle to make a heroic goal line clearance.

The night ended on a high amidst strong Oldham pressure, Notts substitute Romello Nangel coming off the bench to put in spritely performance for the 5 minutes of injury time, surely earning himself an earlier inclusion in a coming fixture.

Notts 1 – 0 Oldham
