Wigan Athletic 0-0 Fulham

Wigan v Fulham


Chris Martin’s attempted overhead kick was one of very few half-chances

Wigan avoided a fifth-straight Championship defeat with a forgettable stalemate against Fulham, who remain unbeaten on their travels.

The visitors had the better of the first half, Neeskens Kebano’s drive was pushed clear by keeper Adam Bogdan.

Gary Caldwell’s side went close when Yanic Wildschut cut inside and found Michael Jacobs, but his shot went wide.

Fulham keeper David Button was forced into action at the death, tipping Nick Powell’s effort over the crossbar.

The game was marred by a serious-looking injury to Wigan midfielder Alex Gilbey, who was stretchered off in the first half with his leg strapped.

The draw moves the Latics up a place, but they remain in the relegation zone, while Fulham drop out of the top six.

Wigan have now failed to beat the Whites in their last 16 meetings – their longest winless run against an opponent and Fulham’s longest unbeaten run against a side in their league history.
