Wigan 0-0 Leicester

Wigan winless run now stands at three games as the woodwork denied them victory over a spirited Leicester City.

Lee McCulloch’s header cannoned off the crossbar from Nathan Ellington’s cross with 19 minutes remaining.

Leicester had a few chances:

  • Keith Gillespie crossing for James Scowcroft to head over.
  • Lilian Nalis forcing a fine save from John Filan.

Levein said:

We are getting our defensive play sorted out now but we will need to concentrate on creating and scoring at the other end if we are to make a real go of a promotion challenge.

Any side can beat anyone in this division and if you can string three or four wins together then you find yourself right up there in the thick of things.
