George Moncur enjoyed a goalscoring debut for his loan club Colchester United on Saturday, coming off the bench to net the U's equaliser in a pulsating 2-2 draw with Oldham Athletic in Sky Bet League One.

The midfielder, who signed for the Essex club on a half-season loan last week, powered home following a Freddie Sears rebound, after Oldham Athletic cancelled out Magnus Okuonghae's opener with two goals of their own from Jonathan Forte before the interval.

Elsewhere, Sean Maguire started as Sligo Rovers moved up to fifth place in the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division with a 2-1 victory over Athlone Town on Saturday.

Young Swiss goalkeeper Raphael Spiegel, meanwhile, was an unused substitute for Crawley Town as they opened their Sky Bet League One campaign with a 1-0 win at Barnsley.
