The striker netted for the 23rd time this season in the 57th minute to secure the three points for the Latics at the DW Stadium.

Conor McLaughlin’s final-minute header rescued an important point for Fleetwood Town at Southend United.

The Cod Army had been in front at Roots Hall thanks to Bobby Grant’s opener but goals from Adam Barrett and Jack Payne put the hosts in the lead.

However, McLaughlin pounced late on to secure a valuable draw for Steven Pressley’s side.

Chesterfield dented Barnsley’s play-off hopes and increased their own chances of survival with a 2-1 win at Oakwell.

Lee Novak put the Spireites ahead before Adam Hammill brought the hosts level. Ollie Banks then bagged the winner in the 81st minute to send the visitors home happy.
