Luke Robinson in action for Latics against Ipswich

Latics enjoyed the better of the encounter, but couldn't quite force home the winner that would have lifted them above the dreaded 'dotted line' in the table with nine matches remaining.

Callum Lang looked as though he might have won it in the final quarter but, after weaving into the box, he was denied by the 6'9 frame of Holy.

Ipswich threatened for perhaps the only time with 10 minutes to go, when Andre Dozzell nipped in and stabbed goalwards, only for Jamie Jones to divert the ball away.
