  1. Thanks for joining us

    FT: Wigan Athletic 1-0 Bristol City

    That's it from us tonight, as last season's League One champions Wigan climb up to third in the Championship thanks to Nick Powell's header.

    Do join us again tomorrow for a full Saturday football schedule. Until then, have a good night.

  2. Post update

    FT: Wigan Athletic 1-0 Bristol City

    It's four wins in the space of six league games now for Paul Cook's Wigan, who remain unbeaten at home in all competitions since March.

    In contrast, it's a long way home to Bristol on a Friday night from the DW Stadium...

  3. Cook hails 'special player' Powell

    FT: Wigan Athletic 1-0 Bristol City

    Wigan boss Paul Cook tells Sky Sports:

    "Both teams looked like they were cancelling each other out in the first half. it wasn't a great game.

    "A draw probably on the night would have been a fair result but that one moment of magic won it.

    "We had a little bit of luck at the end but, while things are going for us, we're delighted.

    "Nick Powell is a very special player and has the ability to change games like tonight when there's nothing in the match."

    FT: Wigan Athletic 1-0 Bristol City

    So it's a third league defeat of the season for Lee Johnson's Bristol City, while Wigan now have five wins from eight.

    After a run of four wins in a row, the Robins have lost twice away from home in four days, having gone down 4-2 at West Brom on Tuesday.

  5. Wigan up to third

    FT: Wigan Athletic 1-0 Bristol City

    Top six

    Here's what tonight's result has done to the Championship's top six, as things stand...

  6. 'Moment of magic' won the game

    FT: Wigan Athletic 1-0 Bristol City

    Wigan's Sam Morsy tells Sky Sports: "They're a really good side who will be pushing for the play-offs. We knew we had to dig in.

    "It was a moment of magic for the goal."

  7. FT: Wigan Athletic 1-0 Bristol City

    Nick Powell's second-half header - Wigan's only effort on target tonight - is enough to win the game for the home side.

    Bristol City slip down a place but stay in the top six.

  8. FULL-TIME

    Wigan Athletic 1-0 Bristol City

    Paul Cook

    Wigan have another three points and they're up to third in the Championship!

  9. Post update

    Wigan Athletic 1-0 Bristol City

    Bristol City concede a free-kick in their own half - beyond the allotted six minutes of added time - and that will surely be that.

  10. Post update

    Wigan Athletic 1-0 Bristol City

    Bristol City are launching balls in to the Wigan box. It's now or never.

  11. CLOSE!

    Wigan Athletic 1-0 Bristol City

    He had to score! Bristol City's record signing Famara Diedhiou has a free header from a free-kick and he glances it straight at the keeper from a few yards out!

    That's a huge chance.

  12. Post update

    Wigan Athletic 1-0 Bristol City

    After a run of four straight wins, Bristol City are now moments away from a second successive defeat.

  13. SUBSTITUTION (Wigan)

    Wigan Athletic 1-0 Bristol City

    Michael Jacobs goes off as Wigan make their final change. On comes Kai Naismith.

    We're in to six minutes of added time.

  14. Post update

    Wigan Athletic 1-0 Bristol City

    Oh dear! Bristol City waste a glorious chance because centre-back Adam Webster hesitates for too long in the area.

    He couldn't decide whether to square it or shoot. In the end, he did neither! Chance gone.

  15. Post update

    Wigan Athletic 1-0 Bristol City

    Andreas Weimann

    Wigan haven't really looked like letting their lead slip since going 1-0 up.

    They have the ball where they want it, at this late stage, deep in the Bristol City half.

  16. CLOSE!

    Wigan Athletic 1-0 Bristol City

    Lloyd Kelly's fizzing, low cross from the left is flicked on by Andreas Weimann in the middle but there's no one on the end of it for Bristol City.

  17. Post update

    Wigan Athletic 1-0 Bristol City

    Sam Morsy, who has had a really decent game for Wigan tonight, laces a diagonal effort wide of the target.

  18. YELLOW CARD (Bristol City)

    Wigan Athletic 1-0 Bristol City

    City's Marlon Pack is booked for a late tackle as the referee goes back to it after initially playing an advantage.

    Time is running out for Lee Johnson's side.

  19. Post update

    Wigan Athletic 1-0 Bristol City

    The Latics' only effort on target tonight remains Nick Powell's 52nd-minute goal.

    At the other end, Bristol City have had just two attempts on target.

    Trying to change that, the visitors' right-back Jack Hunt sends over a cross towards Famara Diedhiou but the striker can't quite get his foot on it in the box.

  20. Post update

    Wigan Athletic 1-0 Bristol City

    As it stands then, Wigan are heading third in the Championship with what would be a second consecutive win, thanks to Nick Powell's header.
