Wigan Athletic earned a tough draw away to Birmingham City last weekend. The Blues scored early with Lukas Jutkiewicz slotting past Wigan keeper Jamie Jones. However, the Latics responded quickly by hitting the posts midway into the half and also saw a good chance blocked on the line by Wes Harding.
Wigan continued to pile the pressure and finally got their reward on the stroke of halftime as star player Nick Powell scored via a deflection from outside the 18. The second half saw chances few and far between as both clubs were content to hold out for a draw.
