  • Bad day at the office for Latics
  • Goalkeeper Jamie Jones prevented his side being on the wrong end of a rout
  • Olly Crankshaw saw a late ‘goal’ disallowed for offside

Charlie Jolley for Will Keane.

Former Latics striker Mikael Mandron is replaced by Wigan-born Chris Porter, still going at 36...! Lee Evans' shot is off target but is superbly turned in by Olly Crankshaw, but flag was up for offside. Must have been close. Still 3-0.

Gavin Massey fires inches wide of the far post from the edge of the box.

Goal 3-0 Crewe...Jamie Jones makes two saves but Mikael Mandron makes it third time lucky, reacted quicker than any of the Latics cover.

Dan Gardner and Olly Crankshaw for Chris Merrie and Alex Perry.

Curling effort from Lee Evans, always starting off too wide, didn’t curl enough to challenge the goal.

HT Crewe 2 Latics 0.

And if anything the scoreline flatters Latics...after a decent opening 10 it's been all Crewe, and the only positive is the game's not already gone.

First real shooting chance for Will Keane, but swings his left foot at it and it flies wide.

Wonderful cross from Kal Naismith from the left, and it rolls all the way through the box for a goal-kick. Just needed a touch.
