FT Latics 1 Pompey 0.

Wasn’t a classic, and Latics struggled to hit their straps for the majority. But Callum Lang’s goal sends them fourth in the table, two points off the top. With so many gears to find.

Gwion Edwards for Callum Lang.

Gavin Massey for Tom Pearce, 83 gone.

1-0 Latics and it’s Callum Lang! Cool finish from 10 yards.

Still not happening for Latics, who are looking every inch a side that’s been thrown together in the last couple of months. Which of course they are. Early (deserved) results probably covered up what a huge task it is. This is still a work in progress, as Leam keeps saying.

Good chance for Pompey, overlap down the right, cross comes in and Ronan Curtis heads over.

Twice Pompey have taken advantage of lapses and driven forward...twice denied by perfectly-executed sliding challenges in the nick of by Tom Naylor and one by Jack Whatmough.

James McClean is on...for Jordan Jones...53 minutes gone.

James McClean is already warming up...
