2 Positives from Oldham’s draw

Oldham played Northampton this weekend. They managed a 2-2 draw. The Football Manc Cave are picking out the positives.

Fans have been getting increasingly frustrated with Oldham’s recent performances.

This weekend, they went 2-0 down against Northampton. After just 6 minutes, they were 1-0 down. In the 80th minute, they went 2-0 down and it looked like another loss was on the cards.

However, in the 85th minute, Wilson got one back. Four minutes later, Smith made it 2-2.

This is a complete turn around from the start of the season. Oldham used to be the ones who would be winning 2-0 and ending up with draws.

There will still be some fans conplaining about the timings of these goals. However, here’s 2 positives they will take from the draw…

Bouced back

Even though the two goals only came after Northampton had already scored theirs, at least Oldham bounced back.

There was a fight in the team which is what fans want to see. Effectively, it doesn’t matter when those goals come right now, as long as they do.

Fouls

When you look at the stats from the game, Oldham didn’t pick up any yellow or red cards.

Some fans might not care too much for this. However, it’s a move in the right direction for Oldham because they’ve recently had players suspended for too many yellow cards or reds.
