Match Report: Notts County once again disappoint in Oldham Athletic draw


PON_News

Notts County once again failed to impress on the pitch as they could only play out a 0-0 draw against fellow League Two strugglers Oldham Athletic at Meadow Lane on Tuesday night.

Sure, Harry Kewell's side claimed their first clean sheet in a month and now have two points from their last two games.

But really, they should have beaten Port Vale at the weekend and they were truly lacklustre against the Latics, another side they should have put away.

As it turned out, Oldham let rip with 19 efforts against Notts, six of which were on target, won nine corners and were generally dominant in the game.

Indeed, County had Ross Fitzsimons to thank for keeping the Latics at bay, while Jamie Turley once again bailed his side out with a goalline clearance and a superb tackle on Ishmael Miller.

At the end, the hosts could very well have clinched all three points at the death when Enzio Boldewijn hit the foot of the post, but in the end the result was a stalemate which does little for both sides.

Nonetheless, the result lifted Notts a point further away from the relegation zone, thanks to their first clean sheet since the 1-0 win at Macclesfield a month ago.
