Oldham's win over Liverpool up there with the best for Dickov

Oldham Athletic manager Paul Dickov suggests Sunday's 3-2 FA Cup fourth round victory over Liverpool was one of the best moments of his career.

The League One Latics progressed to the last 16 of the famous cup competition thanks to a first-half brace from Matt Smith and a second-half goal from the on-loan Reece Wabara and the result was one that Dickov is clearly proud of.

During his playing days, the 40-year old won the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup with Arsenal in 1994 as well as being involved in some big matches but feels this win over Liverpool is right up there with those moments.

"I'm proud of the players and the performance they put in," he said after the triumph.

"To put that in against a team of world-class players was fantastic.

"I know what they are capable of. I just thought the desire they had to win the game was the reason we won it.

"I've won a European medal, I was involved in FA Cup finals, played for my country, scored at Wembley but after everything that has gone on recently that was right up there at the top."
