Ex-Latics player and current Carlisle boss Neil McDonald was happy to see his side clinch a point in the dying minutes of the game at Brunton Park after it looked like they were destined for defeat.

He said, "It certainly wasn't the best we've played, but to come away with a point knowing that we haven't played as well as we have done in the past is very satisfying indeed. That's especially true when you consider that we were playing against a team that played really well on the day in Oldham. I think we started fairly poorly. We didn't try to turn them and didn't play to the conditions with the sun in our eyes and the wind against us. That only helped put us under pressure."

"Hands up, when the goal came you have to say they deserved it but we kept at it and just kept chipping away. The lads have got his never-say-die attitude and they just don't like losing. Eventually we've broken them down, and we're very happy with a point."
