Salford City 1 - 1 Oldham Athletic

Date published: 26 January 2020

Danny Rowe helped secure a draw for Oldham Athletic at the Peninsula Stadium, after a game in which Latics struggled to create chances.

With just seven minutes remaining, Rowe took advantage as Zak Dearnley tipped the ball to his feet. Running on goal, Rowe fired home a superb shot from 15 yards.

It was the highlight of the game in which Salford took the lead after 15 minutes.  After being awarded a penalty, Adam Rooney's shot was saved by Zues De La Paz, though the rebounded ball caused a melle in the box, with Brandon Thomas-Asante finally getting the ball across the line.

Oldham managed another shot on target after the restart with Johnny Smith's low-angled strike being deftly smacked away by Ammies keeper Kyle Letheren.

The result could have been so much different if a late attack by Salford striker Craig Conway had succeeded in finding the back of the net, though Zues De La Paz collected the ball with confidence.

The game was marred by various flares being thrown onto the pitch at the Peninsula Stadium, which stopped play briefly.  However, the reaction of the visitors on Rowe's equaliser proved that Latics fans still have a fire in their belly.
