Latics fell to their first Development Squad defeat of the season on Tuesday afternoon after a flurry of second half goals settled the contest, which in truth was a harsh score line for Nick Chadwick's side.
Joe Piggott scored a stunning long range effort to level following Ricky Miller's opening penalty, but three goals in seven second half minutes saw Latics unstuck, with Scott Quigley on target twice and Louis Dodds rounding off the scoring for the hosts at Vale Park.
