FT Sunderland 2 Latics 1.And no real complaints based on the 90 minutes. Report and reaction to come.

added minutes.

Jordan Cousins for Tom Naylor, three minutes to go.

Crowd here is 31,549, with 2k from Wigan.

Humphrys for Edwards

Stephen Humphrys imminent. 13 minutes to go.

Good chance for Latics, Edwards elects not to play in Wyke, and his shot from 20 yards is parried away to safety. Might feel he should have played the pass.

First change for Latics, Jordan Jones for Will Keane.

Wow what a let-off for Latics...Lynden Gooch’s shot hits the stanchion and away to safety. Is that the turning point?

Goal 2-1 Sunderland, corner from the right and it’s a free header for Ross Stewart from close range, it’s such a poor goal to give away. Leam will be livid.
