That was fantastic from McDonald. Great tackle to win the ball and great finish.
Just what we needed before HT.

Well at least we’re level especially after the penalty miss. They still look dangerous but defensively they are no more than average so it’s a winnable game.

I don't think we have been terrible but conceding so early against a counter attacking side always makes life difficult. We have been bogged down at times and we have missed Kahn's width on the right.

Need to keep the back door closed now, and hopefully go on and win it.

Hopefully see something of Nugent and possibly CBT as could do with some more pace up there

I felt Rovers were incredibly sloppy in the early stages of the game, giving the ball away, free run if for the goal. Oldham were a lot more organised than expected and we haven't really tested their vulnerability at crosses. We have got back into things more as the half went on, good work for the saved penalty and great finish from Calum to level it. We've had a few half-chances, but could go either way. I think both Morris and O'Connor have played quite well so far. Ref seems a bit card-happy so got to be careful defensively.

An early boost for rovers as Jam-buttie gets a second yellow and is off.

Get Vaughan off free kicks. Give McDonald or Feeney a go

Got to learn the lessons of previous games against ten men and kill things off now.

Defensively, they are pretty poor, if we continue to run at them, we could score a few more.

As you would except against us their 10 men have had a decent spell! Can’t be giving any silly set pieces away as they only need one chance. Let’s go and get a third to kill the game off

Think we should make some changes soon to try and kill the game off. We have another tough game on Tuesday so let’s freshen it up

Nugent on for Vaughan but he needs service

It's the other one who does my head in banging on about a Rovers win as Oldham mount an attack.

Will be interesting to see how Nugent shapes up.
