Leam Richardson’s side were heading for a 0-0 stalemate at the DW Stadium until a Max Power free-kick saw Will Keane grab the winner in the 95th minute.

Wigan were deserved winners after bossing the pitch with 62 per cent possession overall.

Keane was delighted to get on the scoresheet and get off the mark for the season.

“It was very dramatic, we didn’t mean for it to pan out that way,” He said.

“I was thankful to have that chance at the end to stick it in.

“What an incredible feeling to score in front of the fans and to have them back, it’s exactly what we have been missing. It was nice to give them that moment.

“It was nice to cap off a tough game with a first win, we want to build momentum at home and it was a good way to start.”
