Wigan Athletic are through to the next round of the Papa John’s Trophy after seeing off Accrington Stanley last night.
The game finished 1-1 before the Latics won on penalties.
Harry Pell opened the scoring for Accrington on 18 minutes before Stephen Humphrys levelled for the visitors in the second-half.
Wigan brought on youngster Baba Adeeko during the game and his performance went down very well with their fans.
The midfielder has been catching the eye playing for their Under-23s and was handed a chance by Leam Richardson yesterday.
He has already made a couple of first-team appearances so far this season in the cup and has further enhanced his reputation now.
The teenager has risen up through the youth ranks of the North West club and looks poised for a bright future.
Wigan fans will be pleased to know he signed a contract over the summer.
Here is how their fans reacted to Adeeko’s performance against Accrington last night-
Adeeko is a baller #wafc

Deserved to go through! Thought #wafc were solid defensively and Stanleys only real chance came from a GK error. With our chances created we could've scored 5 on another night. Adeeko impressive! 5 cracking pens and great save by Jones to put right his earlier misjudgment. UTFT!
