  • Latics hoping to arrest a 13-match winless sequence
  • Lee Evans returns to the side after lengthy injury lay-off
  • Will Grigg and Max Power both in Sunderland starting XI

SECOND HALF

is five minutes old and following the pattern of the first period so far…Sunderland in possession but Latics keeping them at arm’s length.

HT Sunderland 0 Latics 1.

Kyle Joseph’s strike the difference at the break, his first senior goal, and the visitors have stood up to everything Sunderland have thrown at them so far.

PENALTY SHOUT

Kal Naismith takes a tumble as he tries to latch on to Kyle Joseph’s through ball, but Trevor Kettle is unmoved.

Chris Maguire weaves his way into the box for Sunderland, but fires way over the top.

THE MONEY SHOT

Latics break and Max Power just gets a toe in to prevent Thelo Aasgaard getting to Kal Naismith’s through ball.

Aiden McGeady with the opportunity, but he can’t hit the target from the left channel.

OFF THE MARK

Kyle Joseph FINALLY gets the goal his play in recent weeks has deserved, chuffed for him.

Nice build-up, and wonderful left-foot strike from Kyle Joseph into the bottom corner, first senior goal…what a moment for him…1-0 to Latics!

GOAL 1-0 LATICS!

KYLE JOSEPH WITH A BEAUTY!!!

Lee Evans is back on the field after treatment, giving it a go.

Lee Evans down already, less than 10 minutes into his comeback from injury…not a good look this…

…at the Stadium of Light, and Sunderland doing the early pressing…
