Former Latics' boss Pete Wild watched his first game in charge of Halifax Town in an easy game against his former team. Halifax dominated the game and won the match with a second minute goal.
Wild commented, "To say we've had all the upheaval and it's been a difficult couple of weeks, for the lads to produce that display is really pleasing. I'm not getting carried away but it's a good starter for 10. I thought we moved the ball really quickly and caused Oldham a lot of problems. I thought we dominated the game, both in and out of possession. I want the players to excite the fans more this year. I want them to move the ball quicker. We've got some young, exciting players along with the experienced lads. Out of possession, I thought we stopped them from hitting the big switches of play, from being expansive. I thought we did that really well. Don't get me wrong, the pitches will cut up and we may have to play differently against different teams but I want to excite in possession and I want to be tough to play against out of possession."
