League One outfit Oldham have decided against extending Scott Golbourne's loan spell at the club.

The 21-year-old now heads back to his parent club Reading.

He had spent the last two months with the Latics, but does not figure in Joe Royle's plans at Boundary Park.

"Full-back is not a hot-spot for us at the moment, we are well covered with a number of players able to play there," Royle told Oldham's official website.

"Scott obviously has promise and I liked what I saw, but Daniel Jones is doing well enough to keep hold of the shirt at the moment."
