Ritchie attacks a ball in the Wigan box but he's unable to direct his header on target. In fact he's claiming a corner but the ref says otherwise.
Ritchie's left-footed shot from 30 yards deflects off Benson leaving Al-Habsi with no chance! Suggestions of off-side there.
Maloney tries to find McManaman with a thoughtful through-ball but his teammate is a touch slow off the mark.
Magera should add some much-need aerial presence to Swindon's attack. There is certainly no shortage of quality crosses, with Ritchie in particular catching the eye in that department.
Swindon's Raffaele De Vita tries his luck from range but the Italian's effort is comfortably off target.
At the other end, McManaman shows a good touch before forcing Foderingham into a save at the near post.
Ritchie seeing plenty of the ball down the right for the Reds. He's certainly a dangerous prospect going forward.
Connell goes down in the box after tangling with Gary Caldwell, but the referee Peter Walton is having none of it.
Kennedy breaks at pace but the heavily marked Connell is unable to turn in the former's cross from the left.
Ritchie works his way out of trouble on the right flank with some nifty footwork with Watson in close attendance.
Wigan link up with some incisive passing before Maloney's heavy touch surrenders possession in the final third.
Murray fires just over the cross bar with a decent effort from range. There will be one minute of optional time.
Gotta say that goal was well deserved, Swindon were applying all sorts of pressure since going one down.
Smith disappoints again as he lobs a ball aimlessly forward towards Wigan keeper Al-Habsi. He puts his hand up to his teammates.
Jonathan Smith scuffs his shot from the edge of the area. The Swindon man didn't get hold of that at all.
Swindon's Connell carves some space for himself on the right but his cross is weak and easily dealt with.
Ritchie does brilliantly to break up a Wigan attack down the left but possession is lost going forward.
Wigan's Franco Di Santo, with four goals this term, drags his effort off target. Was a difficult angle for the Argentine.
Swindon's Callum Kennedy squeezes a left-footed effort just wide of the target from distance. He got decent purchase on that.
At the other end a cross from the right causes similar indecision among Al-Habsi and his defence, but again no one is at hand to capitalise.
Swindon skipper Paul Caddis is having some harsh words with his keeper as both hesitated on a cross that came in from the right.
No team has really taken control yet. One gets the sense a goal either side could dictate proceedings.
Hendry Thomas blasts his effort harmlessly over from the edge of the area after good work by Callum McManaman down the left flank. McManaman has looked lively for the Latics early on.
Ronan Murray nearly punishes a loose pass by Adrian Lopez but his dipping shot is just about dealt with by Wigan keeper Ali Al-Habsi.
Swindon appear content to sit back until the Latics cross the half-way line. Plenty of bodies behind the ball at all times.
Wigan's James McCarthy earns a free-kick after coming off second best in a crunching challenge from Matt Ritchie.
The Latics are starting to enjoy a shade more possession but they're struggling to make much use of it.
Wigan win back possession and build from the back, with Emmerson Boyce showing some juggling skills on the right before cutting inside and spreading play. Swindon, however, are doing well to cut down the space in midfield.
It's a bright start by the home team as Alan Connell finds space down the right before swinging in a useful cross, which is headed clear.
Hopefully Wigan can get some confidence after the result against Sunderland last week. We don't deserve to be in the bottom three and have found some form until the Sunderland game. Hopefully a win today and show some depth in the squad! - Jack Evans

To give a bit of perspective, Wigan - second-bottom in the Premier League - are 53 places better off than their opponents, who are fourth in League Two.
Latics boss Roberto Martinez welcomes back his skipper Gary Caldwell from suspension. Emmerson Boyce is also available after recovering from a hamstring problem, but winger Albert Crusat is out with a back complaint.
Hosting manager Paolo di Canio has no fresh injury concerns but striker Mehdi Kerrouche remains on the sidelines.
