Oldham Athletic fans left reeling following heavy defeat – ‘Never felt so disconnected with my club, it doesn’t even bother me these days when we see results like this’
It’s time to look away Oldham Athletic fans. The Football Manc Cave are looking at your reactions to the Latic’s 6-1 loss this weekend.
It was an awful weekend to be an Oldham fan. However, you can’t call the game boring. It took 30 minutes for some action to take place. Then it didn’t stop.
How it happened
Mansfield went 1-0 up and a couple of minutes later, Filipe Morais was booked for a late challenge. A minute later and Mansfield were 2-0 up.
Tomas Egert was then shown a red card in the 36th minute. A moment later and Filipe Morais was shown a second yellow and also sent off. Oldham fans couldn’t believe what they were seeing.
Tom Hamer managed to pull a goal back for Oldham just before half time and it looked like a fight would be on the cards for an equaliser. However, things took an even worse turn.
There were 4 minutes of added time in the firstborn half which allowed Mansfield’s Maynard to get a hat-trick. Mansfield had enough time to have a breather and construct a plan.
They came out in the second half and bagged another. Then another. David Wheater managed an own goal. 20-year-old Dylan Fage has then stretchered off the pitch with a serious-looking injury. It’s since been cleared up as being a concussion. Tom Hamer then gave a penalty away meaning Mansfield made it 6-1.
