Josh Windass scored the only goal of the game as Wigan continued their fine home unbeaten run in the Sky Bet Championship with a 1-0 win over West Bromwich Albion on Saturday afternoon.
Windass, who worked tirelessly all afternoon, finished coolly on 74 minutes to give Latics a first win since their 1-0 victory over Bristol City prior to the international break.
Christian Doidge’s first goal in Bolton colours earned Wanderers a share of the spoils away at Rotherham United on Saturday afternoon.
The Whites squandered a glorious opportunity to take the lead early in the second half when Josh Magennis was fouled in the area and proceeded to take the resulting spot-kick which was saved by Marek Rodak.
The home side then took the lead through Will Vaulks’ free-kick – a goal which appeared to have earned them maximum points.
But substitute Doidge popped up with five minutes remaining to fire home from just inside the area to ensure that the Trotters took a point back home with them.
A pair of Ian Henderson penalties secured a 2-0 victory for Rochdale over Bradford City at the Northern Commercials Stadium.

He doubled his tally and made sure of all three points, when he sent the goalkeeper the wrong way after Stephen Dooley had been brought down the home goalkeeper.
