It’s always enjoyable when a team go out on a limb with a mad free-kick routine, because it’s either going to be amazingly brilliant or hilariously awful.
Oldham can count this one in the brilliant category tonight as a few players did all they could to disrupt the keeper before it was taken, before a pinpoint strike found it’s way in off the post:

Perhaps they did just enough to disrupt the positioning of the wall and it allowed the space for the shot to be taken, but it’s definitely an unusual one.
