Despite the scoreline, Albion were playaing some super stuff - and the crowd were getting behind them.

Wigan had not offered much apart from the goal!
But they were close to a carbon copy when Waghorn curled left footed past the top corner.
Then Bruno delivered a superb cross which Wigan scrambed away for a corner.
When that was cleared, Bruno worked a clever one-two with David Lopez and drove the ball in low from the byline but there was no home player to get a touch.

David Lopez was looking full of confidence and ideas.
He angled a pass into the path of Ulloa from the right touchline but the striker's control let hom down and Wigan shielded the ball back to Al Habsi.

Albion almost levelled quickly but Stpehens hit the underside of the bar running on to Ward's low cross.

Rodriguez showed good pace as he turned away from a defender and got in a low cross to the near post, but Greer - still up in the goalmouth following a corner -*shot straight at Al Habsi.
Albion were on top - but they were on for a shock.
Wigan launched a counter attack and supplied McARTHUR to cut inside and curl a terrific finish across Kuszczak.

Then Albion worked a nice move down the left which brought back memories of the winning goal against Doncaster as Ward hung up a cross from near the corner flag. This time Stephens, rather than Ulloa,*meet it with a header which glanced wide.
As the hosts continued to press, Ince's run behind the defence was found but his cutback failed to pick out a team mate.

Then Albion stitched together a lovely move which saw David Lopez pick out Ulloa with a chipped, angled apss. The striker controlled on his chest and let fly with a low right foot volley which Al Habsi held well diving towards his right hand post.

David Lopez replied with a lovely little pass which got Stephens breaking forward to the right of goal - but his low cross could not quite pick out the run of David Rodriguez.

Updates will also be a little shorter than*I would like to offer you but let's hope for a return to normal soon.
Wigan were attacking the North Stand and offered immediate threat as McClean got past the stumbling Bruno and crossed low. But Albion cleared for a corner which was dealt with capably.

Here we go.
Eighth v seventh
No tweets I'm afraid due to ongoing software issues but I'll keep you informed on what should be an interesting tussle at the Amex.*
