Oldham Athletic picked up their first win since the appointment of Keith Curle as the club’s manager on Tuesday night, beating Exeter City 2-1 at Boundary Park.
After Kyle Jameson has given the Latics the lead before half time, Alfie McCalmont doubled that advantage ten minutes into the second half, with Jack Sparkes’ midway through the second period not enough to get Exeter back into the game.
That goal from McCalmont was his fifth in 26 league appearances for Oldham this season, with the midfielder currently on loan having joined the League Two side on loan from Leeds United during the summer transfer window.
Can you get 20/20 on this quiz of Oldham's season so far?
Indeed, that strike on Tuesday was particularly impressive, with the 20-year-old volleying in off the under side of the crossbar from the edge of the area, for what would prove to be the matchwinner.
Perhaps not surprisingly therefore, plenty of Oldham fans were keen to pay tribute to McCalmont as they took to Twitter to give their thoughts on the game.
Here, we take a look at what some of those Latics supporters had to say about the Leeds loanee.
That was some strike 💥

#oafc Lawlor out for the season. 3 left footed centre backs playing together must be a rarity. McCalmont will be a cracking Championship player in time

Backs to the wall sort of stuff but we showed resilience. What a strike by McCalmont, superb technique. #oafc

Rode our luck but got the 3pts. McCalmont MOTM for me. Good performances from Jameson & Walker #oafc
