Attendance - 10,430 (937)
All over here at the DW Stadium, a harsh defeat on Latics, but they've got to be more ruthless.
90+3' Comes to nothing, and that looks like it's the game over.
90+3' LATE CHANCE! Jacobs wriggling through, but Bong knocks it behind for a corner. Bogdan up.
90+1' Yellow! Le Fondre seemingly steals the ball from Duffy's toe coming in round the side, goes down in the area, but instead of a penalty, he's booked for simulation. Without a replay I can't be sure how genuine it was.
90' A minimum of THREE minutes added time! COME ON LATICS!!
90' Yellow! Stephens booked for a clear pull back on MacDonald's shirt.
89' Yellow! Max Power goes into the book, poorly timed challenged on the left touchline.
89' Craig Davies bundled over from behind on the edge of the area as he went up to challenge, nothing given.
88' Latics finding it really tough to get anywhere near Brighton's goal, the visitors slowing the game down at every opportunity.
85' Great block by Nathan Byrne to deny Steve Sidwell following in a low cross, Sidwell's sliding effort ricocheted off Byrne and away to safety.
84' The sting well and truly taken out of the game since Brighton's goal and even more from the final change. Latics nowhere near the amount of the ball they'd had before going behind.
81' SUB: Final change for Brighton, striker Baldock off, left back Pocognoli on.
80' Into the final 10 and a corner for Latics to defend, Burn stopping Murphy from getting a cross in.
78' Since going two up front we've hardly had a chance to get it to them, sort of evidences that if you take a man out of midfield to go up front you lose the edge over the opposition, something which in midfield we've had today. Only time will tell I suppose.
