Yeovil Town went down to their heaviest away defeat of the 2018-19 season on Tuesday night, as Oldham Athletic's new manager Paul Scholes got off to a dream start. The 4-1 win was kickstarted during first half injury time as Jose Baxter was fed by wide ball into the box. Six minutes into the half, Callum Lang headed home to double their lead, but Yeovil threatened a quick comeback as Bevis Mugabi converted from a Carl Dickinson free kick. Oldham then grabbed late goals from Mohammed Maouche and Christopher Missilou to put a bit of gloss on their scoreline as Yeovil remain just two points off the drop, having now played a game more than many of their rivals.
