Stevenage produced a comeback in-front of their home supporters as they beat Oldham Athletic 3-2, leaving Latics 17th League Two.

Frankie Bunn’s starting eleven consisted of Iversen, Hamer, Clarke ©, Edmundson, Hunt, Lang, Gardner, Missilou, Nepomuceno, Miller, Benteke.

The game got off to a frantic start, when Ishmael Miller had two chances inside the opening minute. His first shot from just outside the box deflected wide before the striker headed over from a dangerous cross at the near-post.

Following this, Latics winger Gevaro Nepomuceno crossed for striker Jonathan Benteke, who put a great opportunity wide.

Latics did take the lead as Gevaro Nepomuceno’s corner eventually landed to Ishmael Miller who shot on the turn low past Seny Dieng in the Stevenage goal (0-1).

Stevenage nearly responded instantly as Alex Revell’s header forced Daniel Iversen into a sharp save, pushing it over the bar following Hunt’s well-picked out cross.

Later on in the first half, the hosts equalised through Joel Byrom.

Experienced winger Jamal Campbell-Ryce crossed from the right and Daniel Iversen punched it away, but the ball fell to Joel Byrom on the edge of the box and his shot went in via a deflection (1-1).
