Wigan Athletic rescued a late point through Craig Davies to deny Birmingham City a second consecutive victory.

The visitors had led in the first half when David Davis reacted fastest to tuck in the rebound after Adam Bogdan saved Clayton Donaldson’s penalty.

Earlier, Donaldson had hit the post for Blues, and David Cotterill nearly made it 2-0 after half-time but hit the bar.

Wigan went close through Nick Powell before Davies turned in from close range, but the Blues remain unbeaten.
