Oldham Athletic 1-3 Carlisle United

Carlisle boss John Sheridan made a triumphant return to his former club as the Cumbrians raced to victory at Oldham.

Sheridan, who has had three separate spells as Latics manager, saw his side dominate from the start and clinch their third straight away win in League Two.

Carlisle took the lead after 21 minutes when Jerry Yates headed across goal and Hallam Hope had the easiest of tasks to nod in from point-blank range.

Ishmael Miller went close to equalising with an angled drive, but the visitors made it 2-0 after 56 minutes as Hope turned provider with a low cross for Ashley Nadesan, who lashed in from six yards.

They effectively killed off the game just a minute later as Jack Sowerby collected Hope's pass, spun away from his marker and slotted calmly into the bottom corner.

Oldham replied on 69 minutes when Miller swept in Callum Lang's through-ball, but defeat capped a troubled week for the Boundary Park club after reports that their players were threatening strike action over unpaid wages.
