The Massimo Luongo of sheffield Wednesday indicated his first league start for the club with the only goal in a 1-0 victory at home.
The international, who joined Wednesday by QPR for a documented #1m charge at the start of the season, was included at the line-up after creating a range of appearances as a replacement.
Luongo put an attempt and Steven Fletcher also taken wide.
Wigan had a excellent opportunity to score with a quarter of an hour after Josh Windass broke loose and progressed into the left-hand of the 28, gone. Windass squared to Gavin Massey, whose poor attempt was saved by Keiren Westwood and Jamal Lowe, following up, also saw his shot blocked until Massey terminated wide.
After meeting with a Kadeem Harris cross at the far 19, fletcher failed to make appropriate contact the volley.
At the latter phases of the halfof the Barry Bannan hit the angle of bar and post.
After the restart, the Wigans Charlie Mulgrew swung above a dangerous free-kick that was headed clear by a guardian.
The breakthrough goal came soon before the hour-mark. A Harris cross posed problems for the defence and Adam Reach pulled back the ball to Luongo, who found the net with a shot inside the region.
The ball floated wide as Wednesday travelled in search of another goal.
When his header was tipped onto the bar by Westwood following a Mulgrew free-kick wigan replacement Kieffer Moore went close to equalising a few minutes after joining the activity. It was a nice save from the Wednesdaykeeper, that had been largely untested throughout the match.
The hosts had the ball at the web for another period when the goal was struck by Fletcher, but an offside flag cut on their parties .
Wigan manager Paul Cook sent on Joe Gelhardt and Anthony Pilkington to try and spark a revival but, apart from the attempt of Moore, the visitors never threatened to get back to level terms.
The result usually means that Wigans miserable away form continues, winning only once in their last 28 games on the street.
Wednesdays improved shape under Garry Monk goes on, placing them one of the chasing pack in the Championship.
