Goals from Danny Haynes, Yoann Arquin and Callum McGregor at Meadow Lane on Tuesday night handed County just their third win of the season in League One.

Adam Rooney and Jonson Clarke-Harris found the net for the Latics, who could not build on Saturday's victory over Swindon.

Johnson blasted Oldham's display and admitted he was too angry to confront his players after the game.

"Overall no complaints, other than with my players," he said.

"You realise how you miss players at times. When you have kids out on the pitch and they play like babies, you get nothing out of the game.

"We were so lucky to be one-all at half-time. We deserved nothing from the game on the basis of that first-half performance.

"I was thinking of making three substitutions after half an hour, we were that poor.

"We conceded two poor goals in the second half, standing way too far off their players and giving them way too much space.

"I am a bit angry and can't really talk to anyone in the dressing room. I'd end up having a fight with one of them.

"Clarke-Harris did well at times, he does a bit too much of this dramatic falling about at times, but I'll have a word with him about that."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
