  • Wigan cling on for a 1-0 victory which sees them consolidate fifth place. Leeds gave everything in the second half but failed to make the breakthrough. Thanks for following the game with me. Stay here for report and reaction from the DW Stadium.

  • Byram gets back to deny Fortune a clear run on goal following a Wigan break. The Leeds defender is hurt but Leeds have no time to put the ball out.

  • Byram delivers from the right but Boyce slices clear.

  • Wigan allow Wooton's long ball to bounce in the box but Ramis eventually clears as Poleon threatened to shoot.

  • Four added minutes to be played.

  • Wigan look to retain possession the Leeds half to run down the clock. Fortune finds space on the right and pulls the ball back to the penalty spot, from where Gomez slices wide. Great opportunity.

  • Pearce dinks a cross from the left to the far post but Smith is penalised for climbing all over Ramis.

  • Warnock's high cross to the far post earns a corner. Warnock delivers again towards Pearce but his header is too high.

  • Smith tees up McCormack on the edge of the box before the Leeds skipper attempts a chip which drifts agonisingly wide of the far post. Fine effort.

  • Boyce tangles with Warnock, who is thrown to the ground, but Leeds receive no free-kick.

  • Wigan enjoy a spell of possession around the Leeds box but Fortune carelessly gives it away. Wigan look nervous.

  • Lees meets the free-kick but his header at the far post loops over the bar.

  • Poleon's pace causes grief for Boyce and Ramis, who eventually concedes a free-kick on the right of the box. The Wigan defender escapes a second caution.

  • Brown recreates what he thought was a dive from Gomez, but the referee doesn't agree. A scrappy period in midfield is giving the Wigan back four a breather.

  • McCormack tries to pick out Smith at the far post but the floated delivery is marginally too high for the tall striker. Boyce also looked to grab a handful of Smith's jersey, but the referee did not have a good view.

  • Leeds make their first change: Poleon replaces Hunt.

  • Third and final change for Wigan: Goalscorer Waghorn makes way for Fortune.

  • Butland denies McClean again, this time by gathering a low shot after the winger and created some space on the edge of the box.

  • Butland comes to the right edge of his box to gather as McClean chased a long ball.

  • Tonge shoots from 25 yards but a deflection takes the power off the ball and Al Habsi collects.
