Without a vociferous home crowd to cheer them on due to the coronavirus crisis, the Terriers found themselves on the receiving end of a thoroughly professional away performance from the visitors.

The result saw Paul Cook's men move above Town in the relegation scrap at the bottom of the Championship table.

Jamal Lowe handed the Latics a first-half lead and Anthony Pilkington's deflected effort made it 2-0 shortly after the interval.

Despite plenty of huff and puff, Town rarely threatened David Marshall in the visitors' goal.

"The performance was disappointing," said Cowley.

"It was really short of the levels that we have reached in our preparation games that we have had and also in training.

"I've no excuses. We played three preparation games in similar circumstances to the one today and we played well.

"We knew what today was going to be. We had practised for it, we rehearsed for it."

In a game of very few chances, Cowell was disappointed with the two goals his side conceded.

"I have seen the goals back, the first one was a deflected cross and Jamal Lowe reacts the quickest.

"I thought we could have put pressure on them higher up the pitch.

"The second goal, we gave the ball away and they have countered on us and scored."
