Wigan held to third successive home stalemate by Peterborough

Posted Sunday, January 14, 2018 by PA

Wigan Athletic extended their lead at the top of Sky Bet League One to three points but had to settle for a 0-0 draw against Peterborough - their third home stalemate in a row.

Despite throwing on new signing James Vaughan 24 hours after his arrival from Championship strugglers Sunderland in the second half, the Latics were unable to break down a resolute Posh rearguard.

Vaughan had a couple of half-chances in the final quarter, but Posh goalkeeper Jonathan Bond was equal to his efforts.

Centre-back Dan Burn - voted the League One player of the month for December - got himself forward only to see a shot blocked, with Nick Powell seeing another goal-bound strike headed to safety by Steven Taylor.

At the other end, Posh remained a real threat on the counter, with Jack Marriott forcing a couple of decent saves from Christian Walton - keeping his seventh league clean sheet in a row.

And when Walton was eventually beaten by Marriott in stoppage-time, the flag had long been up on the near side and the effort was chalked off.
