  • Zulte-Waregem 0 Wigan 0. Honours even in Belgium and the points are shared. The Latics will be delighted to take something on their European bow.

  • Not a great delivery from Watson, as he floats the ball over, and Boyce is pulled up for a foul at the back post. Wigan forced to race back into position. McCann with another important clearance, before Dicko hacks to safety.

  • De Fauw takes a chance and ends up having to muscle Watson to the deck. Opportunity to load the box and maybe steal a dramatic winner. Coyle sends plenty forward.

  • D'Haene challenging again, but can't trouble the target on this occasion. Wigan able to go long to Fortune. He needs support, and it doesn't arrive quickly enough. All about holding on now for the Latics.

  • Boyce breaks forward, and is then caught out of position. The ball won't fall kindly for Caceres and then Conte is unable to force a cross from the dead-ball line past Carson. Corner to Zulte.

  • Kums with a shot from a long way out which is easily blocked. Ball returned to the box and two Zulte players go down. Malanda wants a spot-kick, but he was tripped by a team-mate.

  • Another corner is fed in, but dealt with. Wigan can't clear their lines and Hazard fires goalwards inside the box. More handball shouts, but again nothing given. Survival mode at the moment for the Latics.

  • Hazard has to put the corner flag back in before taking the set-piece. More pushing and shoving. The delivery bounces inside the box and D'Haene is denied buy a fantastic block from McCann.

  • Another nice touch from Hazard, but he is forced away from goal. The ball ends up breaking to the edge of the box for Skulason, who sees a shot deflected behind.

  • Caceres popping up wide on the right again, and winning another throw. Patient build-up from the hosts, but no way through. Conte then skips past a couple of tackles and finds Naessens, who slips inside the box just as he was about to pull the trigger.

  • Final change for Wigan sees Powell replaced by Dicko.

  • Fortune all alone in the Zulte half of the field for Wigan. He is penalised while trying to run around Malanda. Watson questions the decision, but there was a shirt tug in there.

  • Space opening up for Powell for a moment, as he skips inside from the right wing. Again the ball runs away from him and the opportunity to get a shot away is gone. Bossut able to gather.

  • McClean working hard to get the ball back, but to no avail. Zulte running out of ideas as they lump long into the box. Wigan can't get out of their own half.

  • Zulte seeing plenty of the ball. A lot of probing going on from the hosts, but not a lot of penetration. They have been restricted to half chance or efforts from distance.

  • Still not happening for Powell as another pass aimed in his direction is allowed to run away from him. Conte threatens again at the other end of the field, but Boyce is there to hack clear.

  • Caceres wins a throw. He is prepared to drift wide and pull defenders with him. Wigan still holding form at the back.

  • Unfortunate for Fortune as he looks to slip past Duplus, but sees the ball bobble through his legs and out of play for a throw. Wigan supporters raise the noise level again. They have enjoyed their evening. They would like something to shout about on the field thought!

  • Malanda allowed to run the ball out. Wigan sitting deep. They have looked dangerous on the counter but can't slip too far into their shell. De Fauw allowed to drift a long way forward before skidding a 20-yard drive well wide.

  • De Fauw puts his head down to deal with a ball down the left, McClean puts his foot up, decision goes with the hosts. Fortune then pulled up for tugging at D'Haene's shirt.
