Oldham 2-1 Brentford

Lee Duxbury's winner for Oldham against Brentford lifted his side into second spot in Division Two.

Oldham went ahead on 22 minutes when Fitz Hall climbed highest to head home Darren Sheridan's left-wing corner for his fourth goal of the season.

However, the lead lasted just six minutes.

Kevin O'Connor took advantage of a moment's hesitation between defenders Will Haining and David Beharall to fire home his seventh goal of the season from the edge of the box.

The Latics hit the winner just two minutes after the break as defender Chris Armstrong delivered the perfect cross and Lee Duxbury's diving header from six yards flew in.

The game ended in high drama when Oldham keeper Les Pogliacomi was sent off deep into injury time for abusive language and police had to move in at the end to escort players off the field as tempers began to run high.


Oldham: Pogliacomi, Beharall, Hall, Haining, Armstrong, Murray, Baudet, Duxbury, Darren Sheridan, Burgess, Killen.
Subs: Miskelly, Clegg, Vernon, Carss, Boshell.

Brentford: Paul Smith, Lovett, Marshall, Sonko, Frampton, Jay Smith, Evans, Hunt, O'Connor, McCammon, Williams.
Subs: Rowlands, Julian, Traynor, Dobson, Fieldwick.

Referee: M Clattenburg (Co Durham).
