Last Updated: 24/11/18 8:35pm
Oldham missed the chance to climb into the top half of the table after Tranmere fought back to secure a 1-1 draw at Prenton Park.
In highly a competitive contest, a strike from Johan Branger gave the visitors the lead at the interval but Rovers hit back in the second half through Connor Jennings to snatch a hard-earned point.

Samuel Edmondson missed a header for Oldham early on, but there was little goalmouth action until six minutes before the break when Tranmere failed to clear a corner and Branger drilled home from 12 yards out.
Ishmael Miller had a chance to double the Latics' advantage on 67 minutes but, under pressure, he shanked his effort wide.
When substitute Sam Surridge went clean through on goal for Oldham he tried to go around Scott Davies but the Rovers keeper got a hand to it - denying a certain second.
And Oldham paid a heavy price for their missed chances when 18 minutes from time a hopeful ball into the box fell nicely for Jennings who fired home the equaliser.
