Oldham climbed out of the League One relegation zone with victory at Scunthorpe with two goals in the final 12 minutes.They had been on the back foot for most of the match, but never looked back after substitute Patrick McEleney marked his debut with a fortunate strike in the 78th minute.Then the other substitute Eoin Doyle doubled Latics lead four minutes later.Neither side had been able to find any fluency to their attacking play in a scrappy opening 45 minutes, with Scunthorpe creating the best two chances from which Hakeeb Adelakun was denied by Johny Placide and Josh Morris headed against the bar.A welcome victory for Oldham.
