You can get more reaction from Owen Coyle soon on Latics Player and wiganathletic.com.
OC - "Lee Nicholls was superb again today and I can't praise him enough. Lee didn't deserve to be on the losing side today."
OC - "We're hoping to extend the stay of Marc Albrighton on loan, we're just waiting for an answer from Aston Villa."
Thank you for following the game here on Latics Wall with me. I'll be back on Thursday evening for the Europa League visit of Zulte Waregem here at the DW. Hope to see you all again on Thursday.
Full time at the DW Stadium, Latics 0 Brighton 1. One goal in it as Andrew Crofts scores moments after Grant Holt had the chance to put Latics ahead one-on-one.
Last chance dies down as Gomez gets into the area down the left, he tries to cross it back and the ball falls in front of Kuszczak who just manages to dive onto the ball.
It's headed away for a throw.
One last chance now to get the ball into the area as Watson lines up a free kick.
Free kick is whipped in by Watson right into the danger zone, four players, two either side go flying to the floor and the ball goes out for a goal kick.
90+3mins: Brighton make another change as Lopez departs and El-Abd comes on.
90mins: As does Nick Powell who sprints forwards with the ball and is hacked down. he gets straight back up to offer Gomez an option, but the referee calls it back to book the Brighton man.
McClean the biggest threat since coming on. Looks so determined.
Four minutes of added time and the supporters give a huge cheer to push the team on.
Consecutive corners come in for Latics but Brighton are hanging on.
89mins: CHANCE! Great work by McClean again wide left, he finds the head of Holt in the area but Kuzsczak tips the ball away from his bottom corner.
James McClean has been Latics main threat in the last few minutes, he's so desperate to get Latics level. Dribbles really well down the left, cuts inside onto his right but a goal bound effort is blocked.
Two minutes plus stoppage time to go.
Nothing comes of the pressure and Owen Coyle seems visibly frustrated on the touchline.
Possession deep into Brighton's half.
85mins: Onto the head of Powell back post by Watson, it's back across the box to Barnett, but there isn't enough power on his effort and Brighton half clear. Latics still pressing.
85mins: McClean earns a corner down the left, he looks desperate to get Latics level.
