Paul Kendrick runs the rule over the Wigan Athletic side that overcame Rotherham United 1-0 and delivers his report card.
Wigan Athletic (4-2-3-1)
Christian Walton: 7 - Didn’t have a lot to do but there when required to pull a couple of fine saves at vital times.
Reece James: 8 - Hard to believe this lad is only 18, plays with the maturity and presence of a seasoned performer.
Chey Dunkley: 8 - The senior figure in this new-look defence but leading by example and made an impact in both boxes.
Cedric Kipre: 8 - Arguably his best game for the club, stood strong when required but also impressed with timely interventions on the deck in a frantic finale.
Antonee Robinson: 8 - Has to be up there with the fastest players ever to play for Latics, can turn defence to attack in seconds, two players in one.
Sam Morsy: 7 - Typical performance from the skipper, kept it simple, available at all times, set the tempo and conducted the orchestra.
Lee Evans: 7 - On another day his set-pieces would have reaped greater rewards, a tailor-made companion for Morsy in the engine room.
Josh Windass: 7 - First home start and looked busy to impress from the off, not afraid to shoot and promising signs for the future.
Callum Connolly: 7 - Given the nod in his most advanced role yet with Jacobs and Massey out, and proved his versatility once again.
Nick Powell: 6 - Not his day for once, put himself about and refused to be bullied but hooked on the hour mark.
Will Grigg: 6 - Like Powell, worked tirelessly without joy, one delicious cross from Robinson had ‘goal’ written all over it before being cut out, summed up his day.
Callum McManaman (for Powell, 60): 7 - Latics desperately needed creativity and he provided it, laying on the winning goal and coming close on another occasion.
James Vaughan (for Grigg, 60): 7 - Right place at the right time and a nudge to the manager for future inclusion.
Joe Garner (for Windass, 90): Not sure if he touched the ball but great to see him finally on the field.
