Paul Scholes had a perfect start to management as Oldham Athletic beat Yeovil Town 4-1 at Boundary Park.

Paul Scholes’ starting eleven consisted of Iversen, Hamer, Edmundson, Clarke ©, Nepomuceno, Maouche, Missilou, Baxter, Dearnley, Lang, Branger-Engone.

Latics went ahead just before half-time, when Gevaro Nepomuceno cleverly back heeled it through to Johan Branger-Engone down the left.

The winger picked out Jose Baxter in the middle and he slotted home his first goal at Boundary Park since he returned to the club (1-0).

Latics netted six minutes into the second half as Gevaro Nepomuceno crossed for Callum Lang who got in front of Yeovil Town goalkeeper Stuart Nelson to head home (2-0).

Bevis Mugabi pulled a goal back for Yeovil Town following a set piece from Carl Dickinson (2-1).

But, Latics resorted their two goal advantage when Mohammed Maouche picked up a loose ball from a Chris O’Grady flick on and the exciting midfielder picked his spot and restored the two-goal cushion for Latics (3-1).

Christopher Missilou then sealed the three points when he volleyed home his first goal for the club as Paul Scholes wins his first game as manager (4-1).

Paul Scholes told BBC Sport: “It was nice, but it’s just a start. That’s all it is. I know there are tougher tests ahead, starting with Saturday against Crewe, who are going really well.”

“4-1 doesn’t reflect how difficult the night was. Yeovil made it difficult for us.”

“I’m really pleased with the goals. I said in my press conference on Monday that I knew there was talent in this squad.”

“I want them to enjoy and express themselves and the way you do that is by scoring goals.”
