Manager Lee Johnson has said he was left satisfied showing our showing and the point we earnt in the opening day game against Colchester Yesterday.
Oldham fell behind in the game but a debut double for Jonathan Forte put us into the lead before they scored a second half leveller and whilst Johnson was disappointed to see us concede the second goal, he told the Official Site that overall he was happy with how we opened our League One season.
'I'm happy with certain parts of the game and I don't think it was a bad result to come here on the first game of the season and get a draw. From a 2-1 leading position and seemingly cruising, it was disappointing. The goal we conceded was poor but we did score two fantastic goals with great individual play from Forte to start with and the second was a real team goal.'
Johnson goes on to say that he felt the midfield were excellent over the course of 90 minutes though, both in terms of their defensive work, but also creation and attacking play, so apart from the second goal there was little for him to be disappointed with.
As for Forte, he added.
'It was really pleasing to see because he's worked hard all pre season. We need to give him a bit of love and those goals will go a long way to set the tone with the fans.'
Now it's all eyes to a tough encounter against Middlesbrough in the Cup now in midweek.
Forte himself said of his debut that it basically couldn't have gone any better for him.
'I was a bit lucky to be fair, I went past one or two and I went to play Clarke-Harris in but it ricocheted straight into my path so I was happy with the goal. I was happy with the second goal. It was a good ball in from Brian Wilson and I thought I put it away well.'
The striker added that the only disappointment for him was that we didn't hold out to win the game, but we didn't lose and everyone can takes positives from it and now we'll look for the victory in the Boro game.
