DANNY Rowe insists it is important for Oldham Athletic to end the season on a high on the field.

Latics put their off-the-field issues to one side to hammer Newport County 5-0 at Boundary Park last time out.

Rowe’s brace took his tally to three since his January move from AFC Fylde with a trip to Crawley next up for Dino Maamria’s men on Saturday, 24 hours after the club could be placed into administration pending the outcome of a court case in Manchester.

"We've got a really good team,” said Rowe, whose goals helped move Latics up to 17th in the League Two table.

“We'll be the first to admit we've been a bit hit and miss at times.

"Some games at Boundary Park we've absolutely battered teams and then had poor results elsewhere.

"It's slightly disappointing in that respect but it's all about getting that consistency now the new faces have settled in and are playing together more.

"I think it'll all come together once we start doing that.

"Winning as many games towards the end of the season now is our aim to keep us focused and it will help us going into next season with some excitement."

Rowe believes he has settled well with Latics, forming a partnership with Zak Dearnley that is only getting better, the former Manchester United trainee having scored four goals in his last four games.

The pair are among a number of new faces brought in by Maamria who has made no secret about how he wants to overhaul things at Boundary Park.

For Rowe, who gained legendary status for his goalscoring exploits at his previous club, it is a case of so far, so good on the playing side.

He said: "As a striker my main aim is to score and it gives you confidence all the time.

"A few of the lads like Tom Hamer have been onto me lately telling and asking me when I'm going to score.

"It does help, if you're scoring it helps give everyone a lift.

"I have settled in really well, I've got to know all of the lads really quickly.

"It was quite hard at first when you don't know how certain players play but I've got used to that now and where to make my movements so I can get on the ball in dangerous positions.”
