Forest Green Rovers 1-1 Oldham Athletic

Dan Gardner's penalty helped Oldham came from behind to earn a League Two draw at Forest Green.

The visitors took the lead when a half clearance from Oldham defender Sam Graham reached Lloyd James and the Rovers midfielder played in Reuben Reid, who placed his shot into the bottom right-hand corner of Daniel Iversen's goal.

The visiting keeper, on loan from Premier League side Leicester, pulled off a number of excellent saves in the second half, denying Reece Brown and Carl Winchester in quick succession.

After weathering the storm, Oldham then levelled from the spot after 78 minutes when Latics skipper Gardner drilled his penalty past keeper Robert Sanchez, who had fouled Jose Baxter.

Christian Doidge thought he had snatched a Forest Green winner in the final minute only for the goal to be ruled out for a foul on the keeper.
