Highlights of the Sky Bet League One match between Wigan Athletic and Fleetwood Town.

Wigan secured a thoroughly deserved 3-0 victory over struggling 10-man Fleetwood at the DW Stadium.

The home side went ahead inside four minutes when Tom Pearce supplied Jordan Jones, who cut in from the flank and fired the ball past Jay Lynch.

It was 2-0 to Wigan just past the half-hour mark when Stephen Humphrys worked a short corner well and crossed for Sean Clare to bundle the ball home off goalkeeper Lynch.

Only brilliant goalkeeping from Lynch prevented Jones scoring his second goal after an incisive Wigan move.

But the game was effectively over as a contest in first-half stoppage time when Fleetwood's Joshua Earl picked up a second booking for simulation in the box, leaving his side down to 10 men.

Wigan added the third goal their dominance warranted just after the hour, Pearce curling a lovely free-kick into the roof of the net after on-loan Fulham forward Martial Godo had been fouled on the edge of the box.
