GALLERY | Wigan Athletic 2 Rovers 1

12 September 2021

The best photos from Rovers' narrow 2-1 away defeat at Wigan Athletic.

Rovers started the match well, defending resolutely, tracking runners and using the ball when they had it. The home side created plenty of half-chances but Callum Lang’s early effort from distance caused Pontus Dahlberg no trouble.

Joe Dodoo’s hopeful hooked ball into the box bounced once and then twice before Rowe – arriving from deep – connected to send the ball beyond Latics keeper Ben Amos.

The lead lasted just two minutes with Will Keane equalising as he headed in from a free kick.

Dahlberg made good saves to deny Kell Watts either side of half time before Keane got a second on the 52nd minute. The Wigan front man looked offside when Lang headed the ball to him, but the assistant referee’s flag stayed down and Keane had a simple task to slot into the net and seal the points for his side.
