Wigan Athletic 1 Rubin Kazan 1 match report: Nick Powell keeps Latics in Europa League chase
Thursday 24 October 2013
On-loan midfielder Nick Powell scored for the second successive Europa League match to maintain Wigan's unbeaten record in the competition. The teenager fired home just before half-time to cancel out Aleksandr Prudinikov's opener in a 1-1 draw at home to Rubin Kazan.
That goal kept the Latics in second place in Group D, two points behind last season's quarter-finalists, but more importantly two ahead of Maribor, who registered their first win against Belgium's Zulte Waregem.
Powell, on loan from Manchester United, grasped the responsibility after Wigan had fallen behind in the 15th minute. The Russian club held the lead for 25 minutes until Powell fired a low shot home.
