Ryan Lowe's 18th goal of the season rescued a point for Tranmere Rovers as they twice fought back against Oldham.

Lowe headed in the second equaliser with 14 minutes left from Jake Cassidy's excellent cross.

Oldham dominated the first half and led when James Wesolowski thumped in an 18-yard shot, but a deflected Jason Koumas strike made 1-1 by the interval.

An unfortunate own goal by Liam Ridehalgh put the visitors back in front before Lowe struck.

Oldham Manager Lee Johnson told BBC Radio Manchester:

"First and foremost it was a good performance by us coming to a difficult place and playing some really good football.

"We had the opportunities and a definite penalty in my eyes.

"I think both teams were obviously naturally a bit edgy but I thought the game by both teams was played in a decent manner today on not a great pitch."
