Allowed a Hazard shot to slip out of his grasp for a disastrous ending to the first half, allowing Zulte-Waregem to level. Remained composed but could do nothing about Malanda's excellent late goal.
Had the chance to put his side ahead inside the first minute but could not generate enough power to beat Bossut and headed wide after a good run at the end of the opening half.
Offered plenty of energy and endeavour for Wigan from left-back, looking to get forward and provide crosses.
Afforded little chance to get forward and had to stay in a defensive position to nullify the likes of Conte and Hazard. Ventured into the opposition box on the overlap once in the second half but saw his cross blocked.
Showed control and composure to slot the ball beyond Bossut for a well-taken opening goal. Marauded forward regularly despite playing in defence.
Sat deep in the first half but moved further forward following the introduction of Fortune during the second period.
Squandered a counterattack by opting to shoot when the better option might have been to pass and saw his effort tipped wide. Was a constant threat on the left wing, had the beating of De Fauw but was booked for kicking the ball away.
His early free kick should have brought the opening goal but went unconverted by a team-mate, before an excellent corner was headed wide by Rogne. Plenty of quality in his delivery but played a gear lower than those around him and was replaced by Fortune after an hour.
More subdued than the likes of McClean, McManaman and Powell but nearly made the telling contribution, only to fire wide having beaten his man. Replaced in stoppage time by Holt.
Launched the counter with a clever pass which should have been returned to him by McClean. Picked up a cheap yellow card for dissent against the assistant referee in the first half. Saw a powerful effort kept out by Bossut.
Saw his pass into the box converted by Barnett after beating his man with some neat footwork and was denied a goal minutes later by Bossut. Lively, though his influence diminished slightly in the second half and was eventually replaced by Espinoza.
Well beaten early on by Barnett, but recovered to deny McManaman with an excellent save from close range and forced a McClean shot wide, before keeping out Powell in the second half.
Nearly turned into his own net from a Barnett header, only for his side to score on the break moments later. Entered into an entertaining battle with McManaman and enjoyed his fair share of success after shakey start.
Made a mess of an attempted clearance and was lucky to go unpunished as Bossut saved from Powell.
D. De Fauw
Caught on the hop at times by the physicality and pace of McClean along with the additional threat of Crainey from deep.
A decent perofrmance from the defender who made no glaring errors in a fast-paced and open game.
Embarrassed by McArthur who dummied him into a tackle before shooting just wide. Tired as the game drew on and came off for N'Diaye.
Beaten all ends up by McManaman as the forward crossed for Wigan to open the scoring but showed some class in midfield during the second half as the Belgians grew into the game. Replaced late on by Caceres.
One of the Belgian side's more creative players. Offered an outlet on the right hand side as the visitors threatened several times on the counter, but was replaced by Sylla.
B. Malanda Adje
Booked in the second half for hacking down McClean from behind, but scored the winner with a wonderful curling effort.
A powerful shot from Chelsea star Eden's younger brother saw Nicholls bundle into his own net as the visitors levelled.
Had the visitors' first shot at goal but scuffed it wide. Launched plenty of the visitors' counter-attacks.
