Dayton ends away-day blues

James Dayton ended Latics' away-day blues with a late equaliser in their 1-1 draw at Bristol City in Sky Bet League 1.

The wide man's second goal of the season cancelled out a first-half strike from Jay Emmanuel-Thomas as Latics ended a run of six successive away league defeats.

Latics, 1-0 down at the break, thought they had won a penalty early in the second half.

Referee Andrew Madley deemed differently and booked Jonson Clarke-Harris for diving.

James Tarkowski, returning after serving a one-match ban, was booked for a sixth time this season  following a foul on Scott Wagstaff.

Dayton (pictured) let fly from 25 yard and his shot whistled past the upright as Latics pressed for an equaliser.

Latics made their first substitution with 20 minutes left when Adam Rooney made way for Cristian Montano.

Latics finally found a route to goal as they equalised in the 77th minute after a neat build up.

Dayton cut in from the right and unleashed a corker from the edge of the box which flew low to the left of keeper Elliot Parish.

Latics made a second switch in the 83rd minute when Dayton was replaced by Sidney Schmeltz.

And that was soon followed by Anton Rodgers coming on for James Wesolowski, the third and final change as they looked to find a winning goal.

Full-time: Bristol City 1, Latics 1.
