Latics' under-18s lost a scrappy affair against Morecambe on Saturday.
Mitchell Culshaw was Latics' biggest threat in the first-half but a direct game didn't suit Latics and both sides struggled to make inroads.
Charlie Jolley had a late headed saved before Joe Downey and Jamie Cotter looked to work a short free-kick on the edge of the box but the ball was slightly overhit.
Morecambe's winner had come just after the hour mark when goalkeeper Jordan Perrin spilled a free-kick and the rebound header couldn't be cleared off the line by defender Tom Hilton.
Latics: Perrin, Golden (McGuffie 68), B. Roberts (Baningme 55), Long, Hilton, Plant, Downey, Cotter, Malumo, Jolley, Culshaw.
