Matt Smith scored twice to earn League One Oldham a shock FA Cup win over Liverpool

Matt Smith's double earned League One Oldham a shock victory over Liverpool in a classic FA Cup fourth-round tie.

The hosts went ahead when Smith headed in Youssouf M'Changama's cross, reports the BBC.

Liverpool skipper Luis Suarez was allowed to run at the Oldham defence as he squeezed in an equaliser.

But Smith took advantage of Brad Jones's error and Reece Wabara scored a delightful back-post header as Oldham restored their advantage although Joe Allen's volley ensured a tense finish.

Steven Gerrard, who was brought on from the substitutes bench in attempt to turn the game around, hit the bar as nerves frayed at a wet and windy Boundary Park.

And yet it was a superb result for Paul Dickov's side on a weekend when Football League sides have caused upsets on all three days of the FA Cup fourth round.
