Oldham Athletic 5-2 Colchester United

Davis Keillor-Dunn scored twice in added time to help Oldham secure a 5-2 win over Colchester in League Two.

The result, which was Oldham's second successive win, leaves the U's - who have not won away since early December - just five points above the relegation places.

The hosts took the lead eight minutes before the break when Conor McAleny slotted home his 19th goal of the season in all competitions from the penalty spot after Tom Eastman tripped Keillor-Dunn.

Alfie McCalmont then doubled Oldham's lead, curling home a free-kick off the post three minutes before half-time.

Defender Carl Piergianni made it three in the 56th minute, shooting into the roof of the net after substitute Nicky Adams' corner was not cleared.

Minutes later Bahamboula saw a shot hit the post, while Colchester skipper Harry Pell then did likewise at the other end.

Frank Nouble reduced Colchester's deficit when he scored a fine solo goal after 64 minutes, before Tom Eastman's long-range effort gave the visitors real hope with nine minutes left.

However, two late close-range finishes from Keillor-Dunn meant League Two's highest scorers Oldham notched another five to take their tally to 64.
