Notts County 0-2 Wigan
Andy Liddell celebrates scoring against Notts County
Liddell scored twice for top-of-the-table Wigan

Two goals from striker Andy Liddell fired Wigan to a deserved win away to Notts County that maintained their perfect start to the season.

County were rarely in contention as Paul Jewell's in-form side continued the excellent form which has established the club as early title contenders.

Latics goalkeeper John Filan was forced into a brilliant early save by Marcel Cas.

But Wigan were soon in control and grabbed the lead after 63 minutes with an exquisite chip from Liddell.

With 16 minutes to go Liddell curled a right-foot shot past keeper Stuart Garden to complete an impressive victory that keeps the Latics top of Division Two.


Notts County: Garden, Stone, Fenton, Ireland, Nicholson, Cas, Bolland, Caskey, Baraclough, Allsopp, Stallard. Subs: Mildenhall, Richardson, Liburd, Ramsden, Heffernan.

Wigan: Filan, Jackson, De Vos, Breckin, McMillan, Green, Dinning, Flynn, McCulloch, Liddell, Ellington. Subs: Yeomans, Roberts, Brannan, Jarrett, Teale.

Referee: M Riley (W Yorkshire)
