Leon Balogun made his first start for Wigan Athletic in their 2-2 draw against Cardiff City on Saturday.

The outing marked the Nigeria international's second appearance in the Championship since he joined Paul Cook's side on loan until the remainder of the season.

Balogun paired Cedric Kipre at the centre of the Latics' defence after Cheyenne Dunkley was sent off in Wednesday's draw against Middlesbrough.

The Super Eagles centre-back was on parade for 90 minutes as Wigan settled for a point at the Cardiff City Stadium which left them in the relegation zone with 31 points after 33 matches.

Next Saturday, the 31-year-old will be hoping to play a part when Paul Cook's side host Millwall at the DW Stadium.
