Despite the Latics seeing Jordan Jones’ penalty saved, Bolton’s Kieran Lee also failed to score.

Goalkeeper Jamie Jones rifled home his spot-kick and a miss by Nathan Delfouneso sent the home side through to the next round.

On the penalty shoot-out win, Wigan boss Leam Richardson said: "It's something we've missed over the last couple of years , that kind of atmosphere...11 and a half thousand on a Tuesday night against a team down the road in a big derby.

"The buzz in the ground was fantastic, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

"The only downside was we weren't lucky enough to be out there with the players and enjoying it from the middle!”
