Full time: Wigan 3-0 MK Dons

One to forget, that’s for sure. Never at the races all afternoon. Down to 16th in the table.

84 mins: Another one off the woodwork

It’s coming all too late for Dons, but Fraser cracks one against the bar from range. The ball stays in play, and Surman eventually fires wide.

That puts the bow on an utterly disastrous showing here. Fisher’s pass was loose, it’s three on two, Solomon-Otabor pulls it back for Dodoo, Darling can do nothing to block it on the line.

MK Dons well out of this now (they probably were before too but...)

65 mins: Wigan double the lead

It’s their first sniff of goal in this half, but they’re 2-0 up. Scott Fraser is robbed of the ball about 30 yards out, it’s worked wide to Massey, who whips the ball into Callum Lang to head into the top corner.

60 mins: A third change

Joe Mason’s running for the afternoon is over, Cameron Jerome replaces him up front.

55 mins: A much better go of it from MK Dons

Already, in this opening 10 minutes of the second half, it’s a significant step from Dons. Surman is running the show, starting a bit deeper than Houghton was and sparking things forwards. The passing is better, the space is opening up more too. They just need to get a bit braver in front of goal and have a few shots.

47 mins: Close from Mason

A close call for Mason as he finds space on the edge of the box for Laird’s cut-back but his effort is just wide of the post, with Jones pinned to the spot.

Wigan restart the game, ahead 1-0.
