Stephy Mavididi sinks struggling Oldham on his Charlton return

Arsenal loanee Stephy Mavididi's strike secured Charlton their first victory in nine Sky Bet League One games - 1-0 over strugglers Oldham.
Ricky Holmes almost fired the Addicks into a stunning early lead with a shot from 30 yards which cannoned off the crossbar.
The game then became rather lacklustre until it sprung into life after 27 minutes as Charlton broke the deadlock.
Mavididi picked up possession on the left and ran into the area, cutting inside an Oldaham defender before drilling a low shot past Johny Placide from eight yards.
Rob Hunt almost had the visitors back on level terms moments later with an effort that flew just over the crossbar.
Goalkeeper Ben Amos had to be alert five minutes after the break to keep out Oldham striker Aaron Holloway, while Holmes' curling shot was tipped behind at the opposite end by Placide on the hour.
Oldham upped the tempo and Holloway was once again denied by Amos, who stuck out a leg to block the attempt at the expense of a corner as the Latics pushed for a leveller.
But substitute Karlan Ahearne-Grant should have wrapped it up late on for the hosts, instead placing his shot straight at Placide.
