  • Own goal and Mitchell Culshaw strike in the second-half earn Latics a point

Wigan Athletic's development squad came from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Grimsby Town on Saturday afternoon.

Two down at the break, Latics got their first back on the stroke of half-time when a Leo Da Silva Lopes corner was diverted into his own net by a Grimsby defender.

After spurning one chance presented to him by Chris Merrie, Mitchell Culshaw did get Latics' leveller just after the hour mark as Da Silva Lopes did superbly on the right before cutting back for Culshaw to finish.

Latics were the better side in the closing stages and had chances to win the game but had to settle for just another point in their Central League campaign.

New signings Denzel Williams and Alex Perry were both involved.

Latics: Evans; Golden, Long, Williams, Galvin; MacDonald, Merrie, Baningime, (Smith 80), Lopes, Trialist (Perry 61); Jolley (Culshaw 45.)
Subs: Perrin, Obi.
