For now, all that's left is for me to remind you that there is FA Cup fourth-round action online and on BBC One tomorrow, with Leicester hosting Derby in a replay.

Thanks for joining me tonight. Until next time, goodbye.

Elsewhere in the EFL

In League One, MK Dons left it very late to beat struggling Oldham, with Nicky Maynard scoring the only goal of the game in the 96th minute.

Meanwhile in League two, Paul Mullin scored for Morecambe in their 1-0 win at Leyton Orient, while Blackpool played out a goalless draw with Crawley.

Unfortunately, that result probably doesn't do either side much good, as Norwich miss out on the chance to move into the top six, while Wigan are still five points adrift of safety.

The Latics might be the happier of the two teams, as Omar Bogle's second-half performance suggests they might at long last have found the solution to their struggles in front of goal.

FULL-TIME: Wigan 2-2 Norwich

What a game.

Wigan fought back brilliantly from a goal down to lead 2-1 after two goals from Omar Bogle, but Mitchell Dijks' header drew Norwich level.

The Canaries might be disappointed not to have won it after dominating the first half, but a draw seems the right result for both sides in the end.

Wigan 2-2 Norwich

Half-hearted appeals for a penalty from Michael Jacobs as he goes down inside the box, nothing given.

Norwich break quickly down the other end, but Nelson Oliveira sends a shot some distance wide from the edge of the box.

Wigan 2-2 Norwich

Four minutes of added time will be played - I'd be happy with double that, because this has been wonderful entertainment.

Nelson Oliveira tries to wriggle free on the edge of the Wigan box, but the Latics clear their lines.

Wigan 2-2 Norwich

Another chance, this time Nelson Oliveira sending a free-kick just a yard or so over the bar.

And now Cameron Jerome wins a free-kick, which Wigan just about manage to scramble behind for a corner.

Wigan 2-2 Norwich

Omar Bogle was quiet in the first half, but he has been outstanding since the break.

After scoring two goals, he wins his side a corner, which ends up with Norwich keeper John Ruddy saving brilliantly from Jake Buxton's attempt on goal.

Both managers might want to do a little more work defending set-pieces on the training ground after their efforts tonight.

Wigan 2-2 Norwich

Into the last ten minutes, and Norwich look to the substitutes' bench to try to get back on top.

Jacob Murphy comes on for the final stages, with Alex Pritchard - who created both of the Canaries' goals - taken off.

Wigan 2-2 Norwich

Omar Bogle
Rex Features

Those two Omar Bogle goals have sparked this game to life, and it's impossible to know who will win from here.

Michael Jacobs drives forward once more for Wigan, picking out Sam Morsy to get a shot away.

His first is blocked, before his second effort is palmed behind by John Ruddy.

Norwich clear it quickly, and Josh Murphy charges down the other end to get a strike on goal, which Jakob Hougaard has to spring low to save.

It is turning into a really exciting game for the neutral.

GOAL: Wigan 2-2 Norwich

Mitchell Dijks

And just like that, Norwich are level.

It's another set-piece that does the damage, with Alex Pritchard's corner met by on-loan Ajax defender Mitchell Dijks for his first Norwich goal.

Wigan keeper Jakob Haugaard had raced out looking for the ball, but Dijks stole in in front of him for an easy finish. 

GOAL: Wigan 2-1 Norwich

Omar Bogle

Omar Bogle
Rex Features

Incredible. Just incredible.

After a long, long delay, Omar Bogle steps up to take the free-kick, and he curls the ball up, over the wall and into the far corner.

Norwich keeper John Ruddy was completely wrong-footed, sliding to his left as the ball sailed past him to his right.

'Wigan on top now'

Wigan 1-1 Norwich

Mark Rivers

Former Norwich City forward on BBC Radio Norfolk

Wigan weren't showing much in the game but they have really sprung to life! They're on top now.

Wigan 1-1 Norwich

Omar Bogle might not be a big name to many football fans, but his goalscoring record is pretty impressive.

The 24-year-old scored 19 goals in 30 games for League Two side Grimsby this season, and now he has a goal on his first Wigan start.

His side are looking to press on now, as they win a free-kick just outside the Norwich box.

GOAL: Wigan 1-1 Norwich

Omar Bogle

Omar Bogle

Simple as you like, Wigan are level.

Michael Jacobs swings a corner into the six yard box, and Norwich's struggles defending set-pieces from earlier this season are back to haunt them again here.

Omar Bogle is the beneficiary, leaping like a salmon to power in a header at the back post. That's the former Grimsby man's first goal for his new club.

Wigan 0-1 Norwich

Better from Wigan, much better, as Will Grigg beats Timm Klose for pace and drills a cross into the box, forcing John Ruddy to put the ball behind.

Midfielder Max Power then has a shot blocked away, before Omar Bogle has a header stopped by a Norwich defender in the six-yard box.

That one-goal Norwich lead looks a little less secure now.

Wigan 0-1 Norwich

Norwich have started the second half as they played much of the first, looking completely in command.

Wigan do eventually get a cross into the Norwich box at long last, but Will Grigg's header is lacking in power and accuracy, going harmlessly wide of the post.

Wigan 0-1 Norwich

Warren Joyce
Rex Features

Probably not the impact Warren Joyce was hoping for from Will Grigg, as the Northern Ireland striker confronts a couple of Norwich players and gets shown a yellow card. 

A Norwich player goes into the book as well, although it's not entirely clear whether that card was meant for Russell Martin or Ivo Pinto. 

No real chances just yet for either side.

Wigan 0-1 Norwich

Warren Joyce makes an attacking change at half-time, as striker Will Grigg coems on in place of midfielder James Weir.

Can Grigg snap his goalless streak and fire Wigan back into this match? 

HT: Wigan 0-1 Norwich

If Wigan are to somehow get back into this game, they are going to have to find a way to improve on a miserable record in front of goal, having scored a league-worst 24 goals this campaign.

Will Grigg, left on the bench tonight, has found the net just seven times so far - 22 fewer goals than he managed last season.

On a positive note, the Latics had the ninth best defensive record in the Championship heading into this match, so if they can start firing up front, they might yet steer clear of the drop.

EFL latest

Leyton Orient v Morecambe
Rex Features

Four games in the EFL tonight, but only one goal. Not ideal viewing on a chilly Tuesday evening.

In League One, MK Dons and Oldham have managed just one shot on target between them, while it's much the same story in the League Two games between Leyton Orient and Morecambe, and Blackpool v Crawley.

Monk and Wagner charged by FA

Huddersfield 2-1 Leeds
Rex Features

Fortunately, Nelson Oliveira's goal was not greeted by the same scenes which met Michael Hefele's late winner for Huddersfield against Leeds on Sunday.

Hefele's goal saw the teams and coaching staff clash on the sidelines, with Huddersfield head coach David Wagner and Leeds boss Garry Monk sent to the stands.

Both Monk and Wagner have been charged with improper conduct by the FA following the incident, while both clubs have been charged with failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion.

HALF-TIME: Wigan 0-1 Norwich

The end of a first half which Norwich have completely dominated.

It could have been very different had Omar Bogle not been denied by Canaries keeper John Ruddy when through on goal earlier on, but Wigan have hardly threatened since.

This will have to be a big half-time talk from Warren Joyce in the Latics dressing room.

Wigan 0-1 Norwich

Alex Neil

Alex Neil was a man on the hotseat after nine defeats in 14 games - things are looking much rosier now for the Norwich boss.

Wigan try to respond, with Stephen Warnock allowed space to get a cross away, but Ivo Pitno recovers quickly to block it behind.

The corner is easily cleared by Norwich, who are very good value for their lead.

GOAL: Wigan 0-1 Norwich

Nelson Oliveira

Finally, Norwich get their reward.

Alex Pritchard drifts a free-kick into the box from just inside the Wigan half, and Nelson Oliveira is there to loop the ball into the top corner of the goal.

It looks like it might have come off his shoulder, but Norwich won't mind that one bit.

Wigan 0-0 Norwich

Yanic Wildschut with a chance to silence the crowd...misses.

He was close though, volleying just wide of the Wigan goal after being picked out by a lovely cross from Ivo Pinto.

Moments later, Timm Klose is denied by a brave block from Stephen Warnock - the holes are starting to open up now in that Latics defence.

Wigan 0-0 Norwich

Wigan break forward quickly after another sustained period of Norwich pressure, with Omar Bogle carrying the ball forward.

Bogle, arguably Wigan's most threatening player so far, has the ball stolen before he can get a shot away.

That break might worry Norwich, who despite their dominance, have failed to test the Wigan goal with any regularity.

Wigan 0-0 Norwich

Wigan finally get hold of the ball, but they're forced out of the Norwich half, and Jake Buxton then passes the ball out of play as he feels pressure from a Canaries defender.

The hosts will be delighted if it's still 0-0 at half-time.

'Like Premier League v League Two'

Wigan 0-0 Norwich

Mark Rivers

Former Norwich City forward on BBC Radio Norfolk

Norwich are head and shoulders above Wigan here. It is like a Premier League team playing a League Two side!


Wigan 0-0 Norwich

Wigan's Dan Burn jumps
Rex Features

Wigan are struggling to keep hold of the ball at the DW Stadium, with Norwich having over 60% of the possession in the opening 25 minutes.

Finally, the Canaries turn their dominance into a chance, as Jonny Howson smashes the ball against the bar from 25 yards out.

Russell Martin heads the rebound in, but the flag is up for offside.

Elsewhere in the EFL

If Wigan and Norwich aren't to your tastes, there's also football league action in League One tonight, where MK Dons are playing struggling Oldham.

In League Two, Blackpool host Crawley, while Leyton Orient are at home to Morecambe.

It's still 0-0 in all those games, but we'll bring you any goals as they come up.

Wigan 0-0 Norwich

Lovely work from Nelson Oliveira, who swings a tempting ball into the box for his strike partner Cameron Jerome to try to latch onto.

The ball is inches too far in front of Jerome, and Wigan survive for now.

'Canaries need composure'

Wigan 0-0 Norwich

Mark Rivers

Former Norwich City forward on BBC Radio Norfolk

Norwich just need to calm down a bit. They need a little bit of composure, more than anything.

When they've got the ball and are passing it around, they're looking like a lot better team than Wigan.

Wigan 0-0 Norwich

Big chance for Wigan!

Omar Bogle is through on goal and looks destined for his first Wigan goal, only to be denied by a great save from the onrushing John Ruddy.

Wigan 0-0 Norwich

Another corner for Norwich after good work down the left from Mitchell Dijks ends up in another Youssouf Mulumbu shot being blocked. I'm starting to sense a pattern here.

Norwich are growing into this game now after a scrappy start.

Wigan 0-0 Norwich

This has been a pretty decent start from the hosts, as they craft the first half-chance of the game.

Former England left-back Stephen Warnock whips a cross in from the left flank, and Norwich keeper John Ruddy has to race off his line to prevent the ball from reaching Omar Bogle.

At the other end, Norwich win their first corner of the match, but Youssouf Mulumbu's shot is blocked away.

Wigan 0-0 Norwich

Wigan win an early free-kick, but Youssouf Mulumbu is there to head the ball clear.

Yanic Wildschut gets his first chance to run at the Wigan defence - no luck this time, as a defender gets across quickly to dispossess the Dutchman.

Wigan get us started

Wigan 0-0 Norwich

The teams take to the pitch, with Yanic Wildschut's name loudly booed by the Wigan fans.

It's the hosts who get this game under way.
