Championship strugglers Wigan and Barnsley played out a goalless draw at the DW Stadium in a game that will not live long in the memory for those in attendance.
In a cagey affair, neither side showed much in terms of quality or flair.
In a first half with few clear-cut chances to speak of, it was Wigan who started brighter.
With just four minutes on the clock, Nathan Byrne's cross veered towards goal but was cleared after scraping the underside of the crossbar.
The visitors started to get on the ball as the half progressed, with Conor Chaplin asking questions of the Wigan defence.
The forward will rue not taking full advantage of Chey Dunkley's poor clearance, though, when he found himself with the ball on the edge of the six-yard box. The Wigan defender quickly recovered to block Chaplin's goal-bound strike.
While the first half was relatively even, it was the visitors who raised the tempo after the break.
Left back Williams showed great intent to get forward and battle his way inside the box but fired his effort across the face of goal.
Luke Thomas and Chaplin then linked up superbly but the latter's effort was scuffed wide.
Wigan goalkeeper David Marshall then had to pull off two fine saves to keep the scores level.
The first came when he tipped behind a thunderous effort from Tykes captain Mike Bahre. The Scottish stopper was then on hand to somehow keep out Luke Thomas' sweet volley from the resulting corner.
The game started to come alive in the final quarter with both sides pushing forward to find a winner.
Barnsley came close again when Schmidt was inches away from converting Williams' cross.
