Oldham made it back-to-back wins under interim boss Steve Thompson with a comprehensive 4-0 victory over promoted Oxford City at Boundary Park.

Thompson took over from the sacked David Unsworth last weekend and helped Latics claim their first win in eight matches with a midweek victory over York, lifting them out of the relegation zone.

And Oldham, one of the sides tipped to make a promotion challenge this season, picked up another win on Saturday thanks to a brace from Brennan Dickenson and goals from Devarn Green and James Norwood.

Green opened the scoring in the 15th minute after making the most of a fine through-ball from Dan Gardner and Dickenson drilled home an unstoppable long-range shot to double the lead in the 40th minute.

Oxford, who had been unbeaten in seven matches since losing their opening three games, had no answer and veteran striker Norwood and Dickenson added gloss to the win in second-half stoppage time.

Norwood slotted home immediately after Oxford goalkeeper Chris Haigh had twice performed heroics before Dickenson produced another superb finish to find the top corner from a free-kick.
