Gelhardt 90 (pen)

Latics continued their excellent start to the 2018/19 EFL Youth Alliance campaign on Saturday lunch time with a hard-fought 1-0 victory away to Walsall courtesy of a late Joe Gelhardt penalty.

The England youth international ensured Latics made it two wins from two following last week's 4-2 victory against Preston North End, with Gelhardt on target from the penalty spot in the 90th minute.

Victory means Latics are now without defeat in 13 games in the league, stretching back into the 2017/18 season.

Latics are early front runners in the Youth Alliance and go into next weekend's home clash with Wrexham full of confidence and in search of a third consecutive victory.

Latics: Jones, Maffeo, Roberts, Obi, Long, McGuffie, Culshaw, Weir, C.Jolley (Capt), Gelhardt, Baningime
Subs: McGaughey, O'Neil, H.Jolley, Robinson, Joseph
