Bournemouth had the chance to equalise instantly when Eunan O'Kane played Wes Thomas in, though the striker couldn't get his shot away.

Thomas and O'Kane linked up well again on 43 minutes, resulting in the Northern Irishman hitting his shot off the post.

O'Kane found himself in on goal after some confusion in the Latics' defence, though Roberto Martinez's side recovered well.

Josh McQuoid almost brought the sides level, putting his effort inches wide from a long throw.

Harry Arter forced a fine save after 68 minutes, cannoning the ball at Ali Al-Habsi.
