A first-half Jonathan Forte penalty proves the difference as Oldham Athletic beat Fleetwood Town 1-0 in this afternoon's League One clash at Park.

A first-half Jonathan Forte penalty has helped Oldham Athletic to a 1-0 win at home to Fleetwood Town in this afternoon's League One clash at Park.

The first effort of the match came in the fourth minute, when a corner kick fell to Liam Kelly just outside the Fleetwood box, but the Latics captain fired over the bar.

The home side came close again just before the quarter-hour mark, with Forte picking up the ball from a counter-attack before blasting an effort just wide.

Oldham kept pushing forward, troubling the Cod Army defence time and time again, but Danny Philliskirk, Carl Winchester and Dominic Poleon all passed up chances before the deadlock was broken in first-half injury time.

Philliskirk was felled in the Fleetwood box, which prompted the referee to give the home side a penalty. Forte made no mistake from the spot to put Oldham a goal up just before the break.

The second half started slowly, with neither side troubling the opposition goal until just after the hour mark, when Poleon, collecting a pass from Philliskirk, forced a good save out of Scott Davies.

Gareth Evans troubled Paul Rachubka with a shot from out wide in a rare chance for Fleetwood, but it was not long before the Oldham pressure recommenced as Brian Wilson fired wide from 20 yards.

With Graham Alexander's side unable to conjure up a response, the game ended with Oldham gaining all three points which see them climb to 11th place in the table.
