match report

Ten-man Nottingham Forest were beaten 3-2 by Oldham in the FA Cup third round at the City Ground to leave Alex McLeish still waiting for his first win as manager.

Forest defender Danny Collins was sent off after an hour as Oldham struck three times in the second half, twice from Robbie Simpson, to give Paul Dickov's outfit a deserved victory.

The home side took the lead after 13 minutes when Andy Reid crossed from the right and Oldham striker Matt Smith put through his own goal from just six yards.

And on the half hour it was only a top-drawer save from Dean Bouzanis that kept the scoreline down, the Latics goalkeeper denying Dexter Blackstock whose effort from 12 yards looked destined for the net.

Reid had taken a knock in the first half and eight minutes from the break he was replaced by Lewis McGugan.

And within a minute of entering the action, the midfielder had a chance of increasing Forest's tally after Cliff Byrne's foul on Simon Cox gave the hosts a free-kick 35 yards out. McGugan struck the ball well enough but his effort hit the defensive wall and the Latics cleared the danger.

Oldham's Jose Baxter fashioned two opportunities at the start of the second half but missed the target on both occasions.

It was nevertheless a spirited start to the second period for Dickov's side who were encouraged to push back their Championship hosts.

And when the lively Simpson equalised from 25 yards after 54 minutes, it was no more than they deserved.

Simpson then added his second four minutes later when he headed home a Dean Furman cross, and it was game over when Collins received his marching orders for a professional foul on Smith and Baxter rifled home the resulting free-kick from 20 yards for Oldham's third goal in seven minutes.

Billy Sharp's added-time effort for Forest was too little, too late.
