GEORGE Edmundson reckons Oldham fully deserved to get their dancing shoes on after getting back on the straight and narrow in League Two with victory over Cambridge.

The Latics brought a three-match winless run in the league to an end with a 3-1 triumph at Boundary Park, the 21-year-old defender, Jordan Lyden and Callum Lang all getting on the scoresheet.

But like in the FA Cup against non-league Hampton and Richmond on Monday, Oldham were forced to come from behind.

However, Edmundson says there can be no doubting his team’s resolve.

“It’s not the best way you want to go about games – coming back from 1-0 down – but to do that, and the way we did it; I thought was excellent,” he said.

Edmundson celebrated his second senior goal for Oldham against the U’s but he could not help but be impressed by Lyden’s 76th-minute strike, the midfielder converting from the halfway line after Cambridge had got themselves into a muddle.

The defender added: “The header [for the equaliser] was just there to be won and I put it in the back of the net.

“In the past couple of games, I’ve missed a few chances, so to get that goal was a big relief. 

“It was a great finish, great composure by Jordan Lyden [for the second goal].

"To be honest, whoever is playing in front of us, I think the two central midfielders are very good. 

“It’s good to have no Tuesday game this week.

"I know you want to play as many games as you can but it is good to have a full week where you can just prepare.”
