CALLUM Lang is relishing the prospect of the attacking football Oldham are hoping to play under new manager Paul Scholes.

He was one of four players to score as they overwhelmed Yeovil Town 4-1 at Boundary Park on Tuesday night.

The forward, on loan from Wigan Athletic, said they were instructed to be clinical in front of goal by the

Manchester United legend, who joined the club on Monday.

Lang, aged 20, said: “I think at the minute we haven’t been long with him at all and we won’t all necessarily know everything he wants us to do because we have had so little time but he wants us to play attacking football.

“He told us after one to go and get another one. He wants us to be ruthless and that showed out on the pitch.

“If you look at the goals, we moved the ball really well, and in this league it is tough, like today Yeovil are quite direct and we have to deal with that and play football and if we have to go long we will do so.

“The passing today was one of the best we have seen and that is the way it is looking like we are going to be playing so we are enjoying it.”

The first half had been a tight affair until Jose Baxter opened the scoring for the hosts in stoppage time.

Lang doubled their advantage just after the break but Bevis Mugabi pulled one back for Yeovil a few minutes later.

Mohamed Maouche fired in close to the end and Christopher Missilou made it 4-1 with a fine strike.

Lang feels the performance was a good start for the new manager.

“The gaffer told us in the changing room he wants to be clinical so we went out and did that,” he said. “Everyone knows who he is.

“He was obviously one of the best players in the world and every player, every person speaks so highly of him.

“I wasn’t a United fan but you appreciate a good player when you see one and when he came into training he is still a top player and we’ve got to learn off him.”

Scholes and Latics will face Crewe Alexandra at Boundary Park on Saturday, who are six games without defeat in the league since losing to Bury on New Year’s Day.
