Wigan Athletic (4-2-3-1):

David Marshall: 7 - A virtual spectator for 90 minutes...but showed his concentration levels - and quality - with two fabulous stops in stoppage-time to preserve his clean sheet.

Nathan Byrne: 7 - Far more like it from the right-back, by far his most assured performance of the campaign.

* Chey Dunkley: 9 - 'Ain't Chey Dunkley' sung the fans, and was absolutely immense both in attack and defence for his team. *

Charlie Mulgrew: 7 - Brought a reassuring presence to the backline since his introduction, and his dead-ball skills add an extra dimension.

Antonee Robinson: 8 - Like the Duracell bunny on speed...literally never stopped running, producing several lung-busting charges into enemy territory to add weight to the attack.

Joe Williams: 8 - Best game for the club, didn't give an inch in the physical battle and also used the ball intelligently as well. Looks a shrewd capture already.

Sam Morsy: 8 - Regulation display from the skipper...tigerish in the tackle, kept it simple in possession, booked.

Gavin Massey: 6 - Still yet to hit his straps this season after injury-plagued campaign last time, but will get there.

Jamal Lowe: 7 - Lively display and worked the channels intelligently as well as probing in the No.10 position.

Michael Jacobs: 6 - Again worked his socks off without reward, but crucial to the lay-out of the side.

Kieffer Moore: 8 - Another selfless display by the lone frontman, received no protection whatsoever from the official but continued to be a glutton for punishment.


Kal Naismith (for Massey, 69): 6 - Slotted in with minimum fuss as usual.

Lee Evans (for Lowe, 70): 6 - Got some decent balls into the box in the last quarter.

Joe Garner (for Moore, 84)): 6 - Involved in an altercation within 15 seconds of his arrival - surely a new record for the master of outhousery.
