United boss Chris Wilder said: “I was pleased with the second half, not so much the first half.

"It was a pretty slow start and I thought we were a bit fortunate to go in at half-time 1-0 up.

"They obviously missed a great chance that maybe affected them a little bit. Then we get the goal and we don't look back.

"What Wigan are going through now, when things aren't going for you, is similar to what went through last year.

"You're just looking for something to give you a lift, but thankfully for us it didn't come today."
