It was another incredible away day on Tuesday night as Latics edged out Peterborough 3-2 in a dramatic finale at the ABAX Stadium.

Wigan had let a two goal lead slip and were in danger of losing when Max Power cut through the Posh defence and produced a sublime finish to secure all three points.

Recent away days at Chesterfield, Port Vale, Oldham, Crewe, Bury and Peterborough have all produced great entertainment for the travelling fans.

These away games have been characterised by great attacking play and poor defending. As a former defender, his team’s defending will frustrate Gary Caldwell, but it certainly ups the excitement quotient.

Latics fans have gone through the whole range of emotions during these games; there have been some desperate lows and some amazing highs.

You certainly get great value for money watching the side on the road.

Next up is another away day at Bradford City, and don’t forget to hold onto your seats – it could be another roller-coaster ride.
