LATICS secured a dramatic last-gasp victory over Charlton with two goals in the last two minutes.

All three substitutes combined to help Latics recover from the disappointment of falling behind to Marvin Sordell’s third-minute strike.

With 88 minutes on the clock, Josh McEachran slipped an inviting ball through for Marc-Antoine Fortune to level the scores.

And two minutes later Jordi Gomez curled a beautiful free-kick round the wall and into the net.
