What a superb free kick and Power gets the equalising goal! He swings it in superbly and it goes all the way through into the back of the net

GOAL! BLACKBURN 2-1 WIGAN (Jacobs, 63)
And just like that, Wigan are back in the game!
A superb ball into the box is headed down for Grigg by Vaughan, but the striker slips in the six yard box and his shot is blocked before the rebound falls to Jacobs.
He hits home on the volley and it takes a few small deflections on the way through, but not enough to take the goal away from being his. Game on!
