  • Latics now without a win in 11 matches
  • Oxford could and should have win by a far wider margin
  • Thelo Aasgaard heads home his first senior goal in the last minute, but it’s too little, too late

Goal 1-0 Oxford, Matty Taylor, hammers the ball home from close range.

Curtis Tilt is back on and giving it a go.

Curtis Tilt limps off and is now being assessed as to whether he can come back on. Latics at the moment down to 10.

What. A Chance. Long free-kick from James is dropped by the goalie and Joseph slides the ball towards goal...and inches wide of an empty net. Came at him in a flash but glorious opportunity. Still 0-0.

Is now under way.

HT Latics 0 Oxford 0.

Kyle Joseph heads off the Wigan line right on half-time, and the visitors probably deserve the lead on the opening 45. Not much from Latics and indebted to Jamie Jones for some good saves. On course for only a second clean sheet in 17 games this term.

Kyle Joseph heads off the Wigan line as James Henry gets his head to a corner. Let-off for Latics right on half-time.

Great save from Jamie Jones to deny Jordan Obita, with James Henry firing the rebound just over.

That is never, ever, ever a foul against Kyle Joseph as he bears down on goal past the last defender...poor decision costs Latics there.

Free header for Taylor again, can’t direct it on target.
