Six minutes remaining for Latics to salvage something from this game.
82mins: Latics looking frustrated at the moment.
81mins: McClean trying his hardest down the left side, he avoids the challenges of Bruno, but his cross is caught by Kuszczak at the front post.
80mins: Brighton will be more than happy to sit back and soak up now. Latics need to take the game to their opponents now.
78mins: Nicholls really couldn't have done anything else for the goal. The header at close range was straight at him, giving him just a moment to react, it should have been cleared when it was pushed up into the air though, as the defenders had the chance to challenge.
77mins: Change for Brighton as Rohan Ince is replaced by Liam Bridcutt.
76' Final change for Latics, Jordi Gomez on for Callum McManaman.
Still 15 minutes for Latics to turn this one around.
Jordi Gomez getting ready to come on.
That really was the big turning point in this game. Before the goal Brighton had hardly had a chance worthy of noting.
Latics behind after Holt could have given them the lead moments earlier.
72mins: Goal! Latics 0 Brighton 1. Andrew Crofts gives the visitors the lead. A close range header from Conway is saved excellently by Nicholls, but the ball flings up into the air and Crofts simply drops the ball in over Nicholls with a header.
70mins: CHANCE! How has Grant Holt missed the target! What a great moment for the big man to give Latics the lead. He steals the ball off the last defender Greer and is in one-on-one, he opens his body up to aim for the far corner but side foots his effort wide.
Today's attendance at the DW Stadium is 14,057.
70mins: Things not going Latics' way. The game has gone a bit flat.
68mins: Brighton seem to be springing into life a little in the last few moments, Latics need to be careful.
67mins: YELLOW! Grant Holt in the book for an aerial collision. A bit unlucky for him really, it was just a coming together.
66mins: Stoppage in play now as Emmerson Boyce receives treatment for a head injury. He's being told to change his shirt and then he'll be okay to carry on.
Another like for like swap in wingers this time. McManaman now operating on the right with McClean over on the left.
65' Second change for Latics, Marc Albrighton off for James McClean.
64mins: The game is getting a little scrappy in the last few minutes, Latics just need a break.
63mins: Latics really need to take advantage when they have the ball. Brighton don't look to be creating much so far.
Watson wasted a free kick by going short from his own half way line with every other player in the box. Luckily it came to nothing in terms of a Brighton breakaway. Latics need to make set piece opportunities count.
61mins: Straight swap and Holt is already involved in the aerial battles.
60' First change for Latics as Fortune is replaced by Grant Holt.
58mins: It's just not coming off in the final third. Great drive forwards with the ball from midfield by McCann, but his pass in front of Fortune is poorly controlled and eventually the striker is crowded out.
56mins: Brighton just started to look threatening then, but a very wayward pass from Andrew Crofts has Conway beating the air in frustration.
Danger averted at the front post as McCann heads simply clear.
56mins: Danger for Latics now as Brighton win a corner.
54mins: The fans are right behind Latics now as they try to throw men forward and unsettle Brighton. A strong challenge by McCann in the centre of the pitch gets both sets of supporters on their feet, fair challenge says the referee.
Powell looking to drop deep at every opportunity to try and start up forward movement, something he does very well.
52mins: Good stuff from Latics so far, but the cutting edge needs to be there.
