The two Egypt internationals started the game and played the full 90 minutes, with Morsy picking up an early yellow card for a foul on Tyrone Mears.

The first-half saw Wigan coming close to scoring a couple of times through Josh Windass, Nick Powell, and Gary Roberts, but they couldn’t find the net.

Both teams had chances to score in the second-half, but the only goal of the game came through Josh Windass in the 74th minute after running past Hegazi before firing home past Johnstone.

The game witnessed a red card with five minutes left as West Brom’s Jake Livermore was sent off for a second yellow card for a foul on Windass.
