South Coast stalemate
It was a case of Latics and Bournemouth cancelling out each other in the opening half of their npower League One match at the Goldsands Stadium.
Though there were chances at both ends, neither goalkeeper had a save to make in the first 45 minutes.
Jonathan Grounds (pictured) was booked early on for a late challenge on Josh McQuoid.
It was his fifth yellow card of the campaign while rules him out of a return to his native North East on Tuesday when Latics play Hartlepool.
Youssouf M'Changama had a couple of long-range attempts at goal, but both flew well wide while a drive from Jose Baxter cleared the crossbar
Marc Pugh and Lewis Grabban both had shots at goal for the Cherries, but both flew high over the bar and a drive from Lee Barnard dipped just over.
Half-time: Bournemouth 0, Latics 0.
