Alfie McCalmont bagged a goal for Oldham Athletic in an impressive 5-2 victory over Colchester United on Friday night.

The midfielder has made 31 League Two appearances this season, scoring seven goals and bagging five assists.

McCalmont's strike caused headlines this weekend for a bizarre free-kick routine in the build-up.

The 21-year-old stepped up to hit the set piece home off the inside of the post, but beforehand four of his team-mates huddled in the six-yard box and comically jumped around in front of goal.

Oldham's players then rushed back to where the wall stood as McCalmont struck his effort.

Remember Whites set piece coach Gianni Vio? Apparently it was inspired by his fleeting employment at Leeds.

"I'd like to take all the credit for it but I can't," Latics boss Keith Curle said post-match.

"It's Paul Butler's one. He had an international set-piece specialist come over and he did it when he was at Leeds and he said it worked, so he put it on at the training ground. And I've got to say I was sceptical to say the least.

"I'd like to take the credit, but I won't do. That one's down to Paul."

Oldham are 16th in League Two, safely in mid-table.

Robbie Gotts - Salford City

Robbie Gotts completed 78 minutes of Salford City's 2-1 win over Stevenage in League Two.

He has made 16 appearances for the Ammies since joining in January, scoring two times and notching one assist.

Salford are ninth in League Two, chasing a play-off spot.

Ryan Edmondson - Northampton Town

Ryan Edmondson featured for 63 minutes of Northampton Town's 1-1 draw with Bristol Rovers in League One.

The 19-year-old has made 19 appearances since joining on loan in the winter window, scoring once and bagging an assist.

Northampton are 19th in League One and sit two points above the drop zone.

Jordan Stevens - Bradford City

Jordan Stevens was an unused substitute in Bradford City's 1-0 win over Grimsby Town in League Two.

The 21-year-old has made one start and 13 appearances from the bench since moving to Valley Parade in January.

The Bantams are 11th in League Two, chasing a play-off spot.

Bryce Hosannah - Bradford City

Bryce Hosannah has unfortunately returned to Leeds United after season-ending surgery.

The 22-year-old was spending the campaign on loan with Bradford City but suffered a hamstring issue in mid-December.

Hosannah failed to appear again for the Bantams and has now been ruled out until next season following the decision to operate.

He is currently undergoing his rehab at Thorp Arch.

Mateusz Bogusz - UD Logrones

Mateusz Bogusz was an unused substitute for UD Logrones in a 1-0 win over Mirandes.

Las Palmas sit 10th in Spain's second division.
