Oldham 1-0 Blackburn - 14-Oct-2017 : Match Report

14 October 2017
Late Queensy Menig effort enough as Oldham edge Blackburn

Oldham kept up their 100 per cent record under caretaker boss Richie Wellens with a dramatic 1-0 victory against Blackburn.

Dutch substitute Queensy Menig struck at the death as Wellens made it four straight wins in all competitions.

Blackburn created the best chance of a high-tempo first half, with Elliott Bennett rounding the goalkeeper but somehow missing the target from six yards.

Peter Whittingham drilled inches wide, while Oldham striker Eoin Doyle forced a low save from Rovers stopper David Raya.

Craig Davies also tested Raya at the end of a flowing move before Whittingham's 25-yard blast cannoned back off the crossbar.

The end-to-end football continued and Oldham's Jack Byrne went close to the breakthrough with a curling drive from the edge of the box.

Davies sent another effort over the bar as Blackburn, seeking their fourth league game without defeat, came under increasing pressure.

But Menig settled it on the stroke of 90 minutes when he chased a Doyle through-ball and finished confidently in the bottom corner
