Oldham Athletic striker Duckens Nazon believes his side play football the right way compared to some of the other teams in League One.

Richie Wellens took over as Latics boss in September,  since then his side have been praised for their ability to get the ball down and pass it around, scoring some fantastic goals in the process.

Duckens Nazon joined Oldham on loan from Wolves in January, and he is delighted with the style of play that Oldham try to implement and believes it benefits himself.

“We try to play football. Some other teams in League One just kick the ball up to the front, but we try to play properly and we have a lot of players who can play,” he told MEN Sport.

“I like it when we pass the ball as that is my game. Sometimes it’s difficult for me because I’m not as big and not that tall, so when we play it on the feet I’m happy.”

Only goal difference separates Oldham from safety at the moment, and Nazon claims his team need to all pull together to help avoid the drop.

“I try my best to motivation the guys. I’m not the type of player to talk in the changing rooms but I’ve said to the players that we need to stick together,” he said.

 “The teams at the bottom that will have success over the next few months are the ones that will stick together, so we need to make sure that we do.”
Oldham enter their game this weekend positioned 21st in League One but are level on points with Fleetwood, placed one position above the drop zone. In Oldham’s last game they picked up a much needed three points as they defeated fellow relegation strugglers MK Dons courtesy of a Anthony Gerrard’s header.
