Thanks Nick, we hope to give every Latics fan the match day experience no matter where they are.
Brilliant performance so far from Marc.
24mins: CHANCE! Latics eventually work a throw in into the area, Fortune tees up Powell who skips beyond Upson to get the ball out of his feet, but his left footed shot is held by Kuszczak.
Superb stuff from Marc Albrighton, he ran half the length of the pitch then, taking on two defenders before winning a throw in a great position.
22mins: Brighton on top right now, putting pressure on the defence with crosses, but Latics should have had a free kick on the edge of their own box as Watson was wrestled to the ground, nothing given.
20mins: CLOSE! Brighton almost take the lead as David Lopez skips into the box down the right, Nicholls closes the angle forcing the midfielder to play the ball back into the box, but a combination of Watson and Boyce get the ball clear.
20mins: Brighton attempting to take Latics' bite away now as they pass the ball around at the back.
19mins: I count that as the second shot off target in the last few minutes from Brighton. Forster Caskey allowed space but luckily for Latics he dragged his effort and Nicholls saw it easily past his post.
18mins: The free kick is lobbed into the box by Watson towards Boyce, but he's out-muscled by Upson who lets the ball go out for a goal kick.
Latics looking good though so far, Fortune looking to get involved all of the time, great to see. Wins a free kick from Greer's foul just inside the Brighton half.
16mins: Nick Powell making a couple of strange decisions lately, first he shot from all of 40 yards out wide on the left, and then he tried to flick the ball away over his head but gave away possession.
Hi BrazilianTic! Yes Powell is behind Fortune, with Albrighton right and McManaman left.
Thank Brian! We still in the baby steps right now, by next time we're hoping to have some nice little icons for each piece of commentary!
Brighton now on the offensive deep into Latics' half.
13mins: CHANCE! Another attack by Latics, Fortune holds the ball up in the right corner and tries to dribble into the box, a half clearance from Brighton falls to McManaman in the area, but he scuffs his effort wide.

11mins: CHANCE! Lovely football from Latics, Perch spreads it left for Albrighton who jinks past his man and plays the ball right across the pitch for Watson on the right. Watson and Fortune interchange inside the area, with Watson firing just wide with the outside of his right foot.
10mins: CHANCE! Fortune great work on the wing, low cross to Powell at the front post, his flick towards goal is blocked and Ince panics to clear behind for a corner.
Marc Albrighton certainly the most active attacking player for Latics, looks very sharp.
8mins: SAVE! Great stop by Lee Nicholls as Bruno Salter is allowed all sorts of space to shoot in the area, Nicholls reacts the push the ball away, it drops to the feet of Barnes in the six yard box but he is offside. Latics living dangerously there.
6mins: CLOSE! Good stuff from Latics as Albrighton stands a cross up high in the area, McCann heads back of the area towards Kuszczak who flaps at the ball. It drops in the area for Fortune who tees up Boyce on the edge, his shot is scuffed but headed on by Powell trying to catch the keeper out, easy catch in the end.
Hi Tana! It's Nick here as usual, we're just using a different service now!
Corner comes to nothing as Watson takes low to the front post and Barnett knocks behind.
5mins: CLOSE! Great work from Albrighton down the right wing, looks like he's been backed into a corner, but gets a cross into the area that almost drifts under the cross bar, Greer cleared for a corner.
4mins: Latics' fans have kicked into action their the now customary FA Cup champions chant.

3mins: A noisy travelling bunch from Brighton, let's hope Owen Coyle's men can get an early advantage to calm them down.
We're underway at the DW, possession very back and forth in the opening 3 minutes, neither team seems to be able to control it on the ground.
The players are in the tunnel, the excitement is building inside the DW Stadium as Latics look to extend their unbeaten home run.
