Cambridge United 1-1 Oldham Athletic

Jevani Brown netted a second-half equaliser as Cambridge secured a League Two draw at home to Oldham.

The visitors took the lead after 13 minutes when Gevaro Nepomuceno's corner was headed into his own net by U's defender Harrison Dunk.

Chances were hard to come by, with Oldham's only other shot of note being Nepomuceno's effort wide from the edge of the box, while two efforts by Reggie Lambe were all Cambridge produced.

Lambe saw one shot well blocked three minutes before the break before seeing a deflected effort held by goalkeeper Daniel Iverson, but the hosts were level just a minute into the second half.

Home goalkeeper Dimi Mitov's kick out of defence ran all the way through and found Brown well placed in space midway through the Oldham half, and Brown kept his composure to slot home past Iverson.

Oldham had a glorious chance to take the lead for the second time 21 minutes from time through Oladapo Afolayan when a Nepomuceno corner fell to him at the back post, but he fired his effort wide as the spoils were shared.
