Smith equaliser earns Oldham tidy windfall for Everton Cup replay

Oldham Athletic have earned a financial lifeline after securing an FA Cup replay at Everton.

The significance of Matt Smith's equaliser goes way beyond football, with Oldham's owner, Simon Corney, having to cope with losses of £1million a year and the Boundary Park ground in urgent need of repair.

A match at Everton could be worth more than £500,000 in gate receipts and TV money in addition to what the club have already earned in their Cup run.
