Tuesday 29 December 2020 20:40, UK

Will Keane’s 83rd-minute winner secured three precious points for Wigan in a 4-3 victory at bottom-side Burton after Kyle Joseph’s hat-trick had brought the Latics level on three occasions.

A frantic start to the game saw four goals in the first 28 minutes.

Albion went in front after 13 minutes with John-Joe O’Toole powering home a header from a short corner routine.

Wigan equalised six minutes later from their own set piece, Joseph diverting the ball past Kieran O’Hara using his thigh.

John Brayford headed home a close-range effort from Joe Powell’s left-wing free-kick but Albion’s lead lasted barely three minutes as Joseph netted for a second time, smartly converting Olly Crankshaw’s cross.


Burton moved back in front for a third time when Kane Hemmings pounced on a loose ball to fire home after 72 minutes only for Joseph to complete his hat-trick a minute later as he superbly guided Tom Pearce’s cross inside the post.

Keane rounded off a breathless game by heading home Chris Merrie’s cross.
