A LATE goal from Marc-Antoine Fortune gave Wigan Athletic their first away win of the campaign since the opening day of the season at Yeovil.

It looked like Latics would extend their scoreless sequence away from the DW to 10 matches as the home side dug in.

The visitors saw four efforts cleared off the line, before they eventually broke through with 12 minutes remaining.

Substitute Grant Holt created the danger with his first touch, and Fortune was on hand at the far post to send the away end into raptures.
