Oldham Athletic picked up their first win of the season beating Macclesfield Town 3-1 at Boundary Park.

Frankie Bunn’s starting eleven consisted of Iversen, Hunt, Edmundson, Clarke ©, Taylor, Branger-Engone, Gardner, Coke, Nepomuceno, O’Grady, Surridge.

Impressively club captain Peter Clarke made his 700th career appearance, and was instrumental for Latics against Macclesfield Town.

The opening goal came as Surridge picked up the loose ball and drove at the Silkmen defence, who he caused problems for all game.

He knocked it past Fiacre Kelleher before calmly slotting past Rhys Taylor in the Macclesfield goal for his first goal for Oldham Athletic.

Latics doubled their well-deserved lead shortly after half-time when Branger-Engone’s deflected striker beat Taylor in goal, following Dan Gardner nicking the ball from Rose inside the visitors’ half.

Rose pulled a goal for Macclesfield with a freekick under the wall after Giles Coke brought down Koby Arthur on the edge of the box.

Macclesfield was nearly level after Kelleher headed against the post from a corner before Gardner forced a good low stop from Taylor.

The away side searched for an equaliser, but the Oldham defence stood firm and Miller ensured the first win of the season with a third.

Young defender George Edmundson launched the ball clear and after initially holding the ball in the corner, Miller decided to barge and power his way into the box before firing it into the corner of the net.
