Johnson hails big Yeovil victory
Oldham’s FA Cup hero Reece Wabara is on his way to Blackpool

pigeons in the top seven or eight.
“We’re getting closer to where we want to be. Of course I wanted
the game on as we’re the home team, but to be fair, Karl Robinson
also wanted it on.
“The referee quite rightly waited a little while to check it was
safe, but we all decided to start it and credit to both sets of
players. If you walk out there now the pitch looks
“It’s absolutely great to have Paddy Madden around – he is an
infectious runner, he has a bit of Irish blood in him, and is a
great finisher. He shows that week in, week out for us.”
