Dickov: Aggrieved at dropped points
Oldham boss Paul Dickov was unhappy after his side had an injury-time goal ruled out in the 1-1 draw with Scunthorpe.
Matt Derbyshire, on loan from Nottingham Forest, cancelled out Leon Clarke's early strike for the visitors and Robbie Simpson thought he had stolen the points for Oldham in added time, only for the referee to award a foul on visiting goalkeeper Sam Slocombe instead.
Dickov said: "I've looked at the disallowed goal and it wasn't a foul. Their keeper came out, dropped the ball on to our player and then fell over him.
"On Saturday [in a 2-2 draw with Notts County] we had a late goal disallowed for offside when it was actually onside by two yards.
"It's very frustrating and we are unlucky not to be talking about six points instead of two. That doesn't mean I'll forget about the first 30 minutes because they weren't good enough.
"We weren't at the races, we were too open and we were too stretched as a team. Once we put that right we played some of our best stuff in my time at the club. At times it was magnificent."
