Referee:

Stevenage came to Boundary Park on Saturday and left with a hard earned point after doing battle with Oldham.

Boro captain Mark Roberts saw his early goal cancelled out by veteran striker Shefki Kuqi, but managed to hang onto a point despite coming under pressure from the home side.

Stevenage made an excellent start to the game. Darius Charles forced a save from Oldham goalkeeper Alex Cisak before they grabbed the lead after four minutes. Michael Bostick's long-range shot looked like heading well wide, but Roberts got his head to the ball and beat Cisak.

Oldham levelled after 19 minutes. Kuqi met Chris Taylor's left-wing free-kick with a glancing header eight yards out which goalkeeper Chris Day only just failed to stop.

The Latics were furious to be denied a penalty when John Mousinho seemed to haul down Jean Yves Mvoto.

Both sides had chances after the break but neither could capitalise and so it was a point each.

Oldham (4-4-2): Cisak, Lee, Clarke, M`Voto, Diamond (Simpson 46), Adeyemi, Taylor, Wesolowski, Winchester, Reid (Smith 66), Kuqi.

Subs: Gerrard, Mellor, Millar.

Stevenage (4-4-2): Day, Henry, Charles, Bostwick, Roberts, Wilson (Walker 60), Laird (Long 79), Mousinho, Byrom (Shroot 66), Reid, Beardsley.

Subs: Julian, Edwards.
