Wigan v Doncaster
Wigan goalkeeper Richard O'Donnell blocks James Coppinger's effort for Doncaster

Wigan secured their first point since relegation to League One with a goalless draw at home to Doncaster.

Harry Forrester almost put Rovers ahead after just two minutes but his shot from Andy Williams' lay-off snuck wide.

The hosts went close when Michael Jacobs' free-kick flicked the bar, before Latics keeper Richard O'Donnell denied Williams and Forrester.

Wigan midfielder David Perkins then cleared a header from Gary MacKenzie off his line as it ended 0-0.
