HARRY Kewell has challenged Dylan Bahamboula to make wonder strikes like his one at Tranmere a familiar sight for Latics fans.

The fans’ favourite scored a goal out of nothing 12 minutes from time to seal a point for 10-man Oldham in the 2-2 draw at Prenton Park – unleashing an unstoppable shot beyond a motionless Scott Davies from 25 yards.

It was a fourth Latics goal for ‘Moyo’ with the 25-year-old’s bag of tricks having been a real highlight of the season so far at Boundary Park.

Now Kewell wants to see moments of magic like that week in, week out, from the Congo international.

“He’s got to release it,” the Latics boss told The Oldham Times.

“There’s no point doing it for 30 minutes here or there, to be a top footballer you’ve got to release it every single game.

“That’s something we’ve been asking for. He’s been producing it in training and this is what we expect.

“He’s capable of dragging players, turning players, getting shots off.

“I’m glad he did it today, hopefully it gives him confidence to go out there and produce it again.

“Sometimes some players they just relax into it and you’ve got to dig a little bit deeper and find out exactly how to get them up there.”

Latics were grateful for Bahamboula’s highlight-reel intervention, Sido Jombati having been sent off early in the second half as things unravelled for the visitors after Davis Keillor-Dunn’s early goal.

The in-form midfielder was allowed to carry the ball half the length of the field before slotting home his fourth goal in six games to give Oldham a flying start on the Wirral.

Keillor-Dunn’s increasing influence as the season has progressed has not shocked his manager who has seen plenty of signs away from the cameras that the former Wrexham man would come good.

“It was no surprise, it was just a great move and he knows now what he’s capable of doing,” said Kewell.

“He’s been doing that recently and for the last couple of months in training. We’ve just wanted him to do it more out there on a Saturday and a Tuesday.”
