Wigan recorded a shock victory at Leeds United on Saturday in a result that lifted them to within two points of safety.
The goal came in the second-half when a Latics corner was turned into his own net by Leeds winger Pablo Hernandez. Goalkeeper Kiko Casilla completely missed his punch as Wigan took advantage of a set-piece and saw the game out extremely well.
Paul Cook’s side achieved the same result last season at Elland Road, and it seems to have become a common theme and his Latics side surprise Marcelo Bielsa’s high-flying Leeds outfit.
Wigan now look ahead to two successive home games when they take on both Preston and Middlesbrough at the DW Stadium next week and picking up such a big win will have given them confidence and momentum going into those fixtures.
Here’s how Latics supporters reacted to the incredible away victory at Leeds…
