Wigan Athletic 3-0 Scunthorpe United

Wigan picked up their first league win of the season with a dominant display against an out-of-sorts Scunthorpe.

Will Grigg's penalty put the Latics in front after he was pulled back by Jack King, his first league goal since a summer move from Brentford.

Donervon Daniels doubled the hosts' lead by turning in Craig Davies' flick before Michael Jacobs hit the bar.

Grigg released Davies to slot in a Wigan third as the Iron failed to truly test home keeper Richard O'Donnell.

Scunthorpe United manager Mark Robins told BBC Radio Humberside:

Robins on Wigan v Scunthorpe

"We were beaten by the better side. We gave them, I think, too much space and certainly too much time on the ball. We were miles off - miles off it and miles off them.

"We played against a good side, we conceded early doors another penalty and we've gifted them a goal.

"It was a disappointing night and again it's one of those that we've got to take on the chin and learn from, and learn from quickly."
