Oldham manager Frankie Bunn was content with the point after Oldham scored two goals in three minutes to earn a draw with high-flying Colchester United.
A brace from on-loan Bournemouth striker Sam Surridge and a header from Peter Clarke helped the Latics come back from 1-3 down to earn a valuable point.
Bunn was happy enough with the draw, especially after having played well in previous games against MK Dons and Newport but losing both.
“I’ve been through a lot of emotions this afternoon, ups, downs and everything in between that 90 minutes and just grateful to come through the other end of it.” He said. “To go down like we’ve done and come back like did shows the character of this side and I thought the boys were terrific today.”
Oldham are sixth in the League Two table and looking to maintain a promotion push to bounce back following last season’s relegation.
“If we’re going to do anything this year it has to be with everybody and this is what we’re trying to promote and build, team ethic, team spirit and they work their socks off. A little bit of quality here and there was missing, but the determination and spirit they showed was fantastic.”
Oldham should be challenging at the top of the table and in Surridge they have a super striker who is proven at this level.
They’ll be top ten come the end of the season, but they need to beat the sides at the top of the table if they’re going to ensure they are top seven, or better.
