Oldham had shocked Saints 36-6 at Knowsley Road in the previous round and were looking to add the scalp of Wigan in this Lancashire Cup Semi Final at Watersheddings. Things started great for Oldham with two errors from Steve Hampson allowing John Fieldhouse and Keith Newton to build up a 10-0 lead. Wigan kicked a penalty goal but Mike Ford's drop goal put Oldham 11-2 in front. A second goal from Edwards brought it back to 11-4 before good work from Ged Byrne and Andy Platt got Phil Blake over for a try. That made it 11-8 by half time. Then Wigan took the lead with Bobbie Goulding sending Shaun Edwards over for a 14-11 lead but a try from Mike Ford brought the lead back Oldham's way at 17-14. Wigan again came back themselves with an Andy Platt try making it 18-17 but Gary Hyde's 76th Minute penalty goal won the match for Oldham. Time still remained enough for Shaun Edwards to be sent off for a trip on Karl Fairbank.
