Wigan Athletic beat Yeovil Town 1-0 in their Championship match this afternoon, thanks to a late goal from Marc-Antoine Fortune.

Wigan Athletic have beaten Yeovil Town 1-0 in their Championship match at Huish Park this afternoon.

The home side started strongly and Yeovil came close to scoring when Joe Edwards saw his strike blocked by Ryan Shotton.

They came close again when Madden fired a free kick into the wall, and from the rebound Edwards forced Nicholls to tip away his powerful drive.

Yeovil were dominating the proceedings and Madden should have done better when he was played through, but he put his strike wide of the post.

After being under pressure for most of the half, Wigan came close to taking the lead on the stroke of half time.

Connor McManaman weaved his way past two defenders, before seeing his left-footed drive cleared off the line.

In the second half, Marcus Albrighton was denied after Wayne Hennessey pushed his effort round the post, before Shotton had a header cleared off the line.

Joe Ralls had a good chance to score for the hosts, but Nicholls did well to push his effort away.

The visitors were on top and made their pressure count when Marc-Antoine Fortune slid in at the back post to fire home Grant Holt's cross.
