Oldham boss Dave Penney admits his side are still haunted by the fear of relegation after they slumped to a 3-2 home loss against Brentford.

The Latics created plenty of openings and scored twice through Pawel Abbott but defeat means they remain in a dangerous position just above the drop zone.

Brentford made it 10 points from their last four games as Charlie MacDonald hit a classy double and Pim Balkestein also got on the scoresheet.

"I was looking for us to push on after going in front but we sat back and did not seem to believe we could win," Penney said "Brentford equalised and then we conceded two poor goals in the space of a few minutes."

He added: "We had a real go after that but it was too late and we have to start winning games. It was a better performance and you cannot fault the players' effort but it's obvious we need points."
