Last Updated: 12/01/19 6:58pm
FA Cup giant killers Oldham returned to League Two action with a hard-fought goalless home draw against Forest Green Rovers.
After shocking Premier League Fulham at Craven Cottage in the FA Cup third round last weekend, the Latics stretched their unbeaten run to four games under caretaker boss Pete Wild.
Forest Green almost struck in the first two minutes when Tahvon Campbell's header was cleared off the line by defender George Edmundson.
George Williams wasted a clear opening, firing straight at Latics goalkeeper Daniel Iversen, while Reece Brown's shot somehow hit both the crossbar and the post before rebounding to safety.
Oldham came to life and made half-chances for French duo Mohamed Maouche and Mohamad Sylla, while Williams was twice denied by Iversen at the other end
The home stopper also kept out Carl Winchester before Rovers brought on Christian Doidge, whose loan spell at Bolton was recently cut short amid a bitter dispute between the clubs.
Oldham could have snatched victory in the 86th minute when Gevaro Nepomuceno forced a smart save from James Montgomery, but Forest Green held on for a point to make it six matches without defeat.
