'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Johnson Remains Postive

Lee Johnson has said he's looking at today's match with his glass half full after we drew one all with Crewe Alexandra.

Oldham went behind very early on in the game with Crewe scoring after only 13 minutes, but a spirited comeback culminated in Charlie MacDonald bringing us level within ten minutes of the second half being underway.

Speaking to the Official Site following the game and our first draw of the season, Johnson said that he was going to focus on the positives again, because at least in this fixture we have grabbed a point and have something to show from it, whereas in previous games we couldn't even bring ourselves level.

'I'm happy with a point after conceding first again. We didn't look great in the first half. You cannot carry four or five who are having really poor games. I had to do something and changed the shape in the second half, I put James Dayton in the hole and he started to become dangerous.'

Johnson admits that we weren't at our best in the whole game, even though we were better in the second 45 minutes, but this is another game he feels we should've won regardless because of the chances we had, but again didn't take.

'It was okay, but disappointing as I thought we could have won the game.'

The greatest positive for Johnson on the day though was the fact that we managed to pick up a point and stopped the rot of three losses on the bounce, so having fought back for the point it's something he wants us to build on now and to learn that if we can't quite go on to win a game, at the very least end with a share of the spoils.

Hopefully now the team will really start to click and we'll start picking up the points to build ourselves a proper buffer on those teams below us, as table wise - even allowing for the fact it's still very early in the season - we are way too close to those relegation spots for our own good.

Crawley Town next and another opportunity for three points hopefully.
