Nick Powell’s first-half goal earned Wigan Athletic a winning start to their League One campaign with a 1-0 victory at MK Dons in which both teams had a player sent off.Powell latched onto a through-ball from Michael Jacobs shortly before half-time and tucked the ball past Dons goalkeeper Lee Nicholls for the only goal of the game.The Latics had chances before the opener through Ivan Toney and Gavin Massey, while MK Dons midfielder Gboly Ariyibi had a free-kick go close.

George Williams was hacked down on the cusp of the break, a challenge which saw Callum Elder dismissed for the visitors but Scott Wootten’s red card after the break for hauling down Jacobs evened things up.Both sides had further chances, with Toney, Ariyibi and former Dons striker Will Grigg all involved, but there was no further score in an even contest just edged by Paul Cook’s side.Line-upsMatch StatsLive TextLine-upsMK Dons1Nicholls2GB WilliamsBooked at 5mins5WoottonBooked at 58mins19Ebanks-Landell3Lewington6UpsonSubstituted forMuirheadat 81’minutesBooked at 83mins8Cissé20Tshibola14AgardSubstituted forThomas-Asanteat 81’minutes15SeagerSubstituted forPawlettat 63’minutes7AriyibiSubstitutes11Pawlett13Sietsma16Muirhead17Downing18McGrandles25Brittain31Thomas-AsanteWigan1Walton2Byrne22Dunkley33Burn3ElderBooked at 44mins8Evans5MorsyBooked at 22mins11MasseyBooked at 72minsSubstituted forColcloughat 79’minutes25PowellSubstituted forThomasat 45’minutesBooked at 71mins17Jacobs10ToneySubstituted forGriggat 67’minutesSubstitutes4Perkins7Gilbey9Grigg21Thomas24Hunt27Colclough40EvansReferee:Kevin JohnsonAttendance:9,164Match StatsHome TeamMK DonsAway TeamWiganPossessionHome54%Away46%ShotsHome6Away14Shots on TargetHome1Away6CornersHome2Away2FoulsHome12Away12Live TextPosted at Match ends, MK Dons 0, Wigan Athletic 1.Full TimePosted at 90’+6′ Second Half ends, MK Dons 0, Wigan Athletic 1.Posted at 90’+3′ Robbie Muirhead (MK Dons) wins a free kick in the attacking half.Posted at 90’+3′ Foul by Lee Evans (Wigan Athletic).Posted at 90’+2′ Attempt blocked.
