LIVE BLOG: FT Sunderland 2 Wigan Athletic 1

Last updated: Saturday, 07 August, 2021, 17:11

HT Sunderland 1 Latics 1.

Max Power booked by referee Bobby Madley, for trying to take a free kick too quickly.

Sunderland corner finds Luke O’Nien, but this time it’s Darikwa with the brilliant block.

Big chance for Sunderland, McGeady cross, Embleton heads over.

Great chance for Latics, Max Power with the shot, deflected over the bar, given as a goal kick...not quite sure how, it’s either hit a Wigan man on the way over or it deflected back off him...but didn’t see either...

Wow what a block from Tom Pearce, to divert a goalbound effort away, with Amos on the deck. Home side pushing here.

Within seconds of Latics taking the lead, Darikwa is penalised for a foul in the box, and Aiden McGeady converts the spot kick.

1-0 Latics, Will Keane fires against a post and Gwion Edwards smashes home from close range.

Triple chance for Latics in a mad scramble...Darkiwa, Edwards and then Power having shots blocked in the space of five seconds, ball eventually booted clear.
