HARRY Kewell was not getting carried away after Oldham’s 3-0 win over Carlisle United in the Carabao Cup.

Latics progressed to the second round of the competition for the first time since 2016/17 after goals from new signings Ben Garrity, Bobby Grant and Conor McAleny rounded off an impressive victory in what was Kewell’s first competitive game in charge.

But despite a dominant first performance at Boundary Park, the 41-year-old was quick to stress that his focus will now shift to next Saturday’s League Two opener against Leyton Orient.

“It’s different because it’s a cup game and you can throw people forward, so we knew it was going to be a challenge but I felt the players did rather well,” he said.

“We had to adapt, at the start of the game we played our way but we know in League Two you can bombard people with high balls and crosses and I felt Carlisle came out in the second half and threw everything at it.

“When you do win, everyone’s happy, but we can’t look too much into the future, we’ve got to take each game as it comes.

“It’s a fantastic result and we want to be part of the Carabao Cup into the next round and we’ve achieved that today but now we reset ourselves and look forward to playing next weekend.”

Kewell also revealed that the club are still looking at a number of potential transfer targets, with a month to go before the window closes on October 5.

Latics have already brought in 11 new signings since his appointment at the start of last month but the Australian believes that there is still room for more.

“I think it’s important if the window is still open that we still look (at potential signings),” he added.

“We know how ruthless this league can be and if you have one or two injuries you can find yourself down to the bare bones.

“We have one or two players that we have got our eye on and we’re always looking.”

The draw for the second and third rounds of the Carabao Cup takes place tomorrow after Brentford’s meeting with Wycombe on Sky Sports.
