Fulham and Wigan play out 0-0 draw on a sunny afternoon at the DW Stadium.

Fulham were looking to avoid defeat in order to carry on their longest unbeaten run against a single opponent. A draw or win would see that figure move up to 16 games.

Slaviša Jokanović made one change to the side that drew with Burton Albion on Tuesday night with Jozabed replacing the injured Sone Aluko.

The visitors started brightly and Neeskens Kebano came close to putting his side ahead early on when his fierce shot on goal forced a save from Adam Bogdan.

Minutes later the hosts had their own golden chance when Will Grigg burst through the Whites defence but David Button was in a good position to watch him smash his opportunity in to the side netting.

Michael Jacobs had an opportunity to put the Latics ahead in the 20th minute but like his teammate prior to him, he could only get as close as the side netting.

Chris Martin had an amazing chance to get his first goal in Fulham colours when Jozabed placed a cross on to his head from the right wing, but somehow the Scotland international couldn’t convert and the ball was safely collected by Bogdan.

Ragnar Sigurdsson had a great chance to breaking the deadlock five minutes before the break when he managed to get on to Denis Odoi’s well taken cross from the right wing but was unfortunately denied in doing so.

The first real chance of the second half came on the hour mark when Kebano crossed towards Martin whose audacious attempt at a bicycle kick sailed wide of the post.

With 25 minutes to go Jokanović attempted to change things up and made a double substitution with Cauley Woodrow and Matt Smith replacing Jozabed and Martin.

Wigan had another chance when the ever-present Yanic Wildschut ran almost half the pitch with the ball and was extremely unlucky to see his attempt at goal wide.

The home side were looking for their first win since August 13th and kept pushing. With seven minutes to go the Latics had a great chance when Max Power played a beautiful through ball to the feet of Michael Jacobs but his effort was well saved by Button.

However, Fulham were keen of a goal of their own and almost got one. Odoi played a nice pass towards Ryan Tunnicliffe in the Wigan penalty area and somehow kept it on yet Smith struggled to convert his low cross.

Wigan had another great opportunity to go ahead when Nick Powell shot just over the bar from just outside of the area as the clock hit 90 minutes.

Despite pushing to get a late winner in stoppage time, the Whites couldn’t convert their chances and the result saw them leave Wigan with a point.
