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

David Marshall: 7 - Best game in a Latics shirt, made several fine saves and gave the backline confidence with his handling.

Nathan Byrne: 6 - Not able to get forward as much as he'd have liked after the red card but stuck manfully to his task.

Chey Dunkley: 6 - Recalled to the league starting XI and stood up to be counted against a fine attacking unit.

Danny Fox: 6 - Recovered from a back injury, and a far more reassuring presence than at Preston last weekend.

Antonee Robinson: 7 - Pace and energy became even more valuable after the red card and got up and down with his usual enthusiasm.

Joe Williams: 2 - Brought into the side to provide bite but got totally carried away on debut, completely losing his head and costing his team any chance of getting anything.

Sam Morsy: 7 - Welcome return to the engine room, showed Williams how to provide bite and tenacity while staying the right side of the disciplinary line.

Gavin Massey: 6 - Sadly unable to repeat the heroics of his last meeting with Leeds, but got valuable match minutes under his belt.

Lee Evans: 7 - Had Wigan's best sights of goal with his long-range free-kicks, and slotted in well to a more advanced role while getting stuck in.

Michael Jacobs: 7 - Another who toiled without much reward, but gave Robinson the necessary protection down the left.

Kieffer Moore: 8 - Thankless task of ploughing the lone furrow made even more impossible after the red card, but didn't give the Leeds defence a moment's rest.


Jamal Lowe (for Massey, 65): 6 - Again showed some promising signs.

Bright Enobakhare (for Jacobs, 65): 6 - Struggled to get as involved as he did in midweek.

Kal Naismith (for Moore, 83): Brought on to save the legs of Moore and shore up the midfield.
