Wigan Athletic 2-2 Millwall

Will Grigg
Wigan striker Will Grigg scored his third goal of the season.

Striker Will Grigg scored a dramatic equaliser in stoppage time for Wigan Athletic to deny Millwall their third straight away league victory.

Michael Jacobs gave the Latics the lead after the break when he linked up with Francisco Junior to fire the ball home.

Fred Onyedinma levelled by rifling in Jimmy Abdou's blocked effort before Mark Beevers headed Millwall in front.

But, after Lions keeper Jordan Archer was caught out of position, Grigg poked home Tim Chow's cross to seal a point.

Millwall boss Neal Harris told BBC London 94.9:

Neil Harris on Wigan v Millwall

"The desire by the boys was outstanding and shows the team has real confidence to come to a place like this and go behind and really go on like they were going to win the game.

"Glass half-full definitely, really proud of the players, we could have won the game in the end.

"Fair play to my group of players, there's honesty, there's desire, hunger to want to play, in a small tight squad."
