The Midlands side had taken the lead in the 44th minute through David Davis' rebound from Clayton Donaldson's missed penalty. 

Birmingham had been under the cosh for large parts of the game with Wigan having 71% possession and far more attempted shots on goal. 

In the end, the pressure told and the Latics managed a deserved equaliser, with striker Craig Davies finding the back of the net in 90th minute to send the Wigan faithful into a state of euphoria.

Despite being second best for large parts of the game, the Blues had as many if not more golden chances than their opponents, with Donaldson and David Cotterill both hitting the woodwork. 

Whilst in the wider scheme of things they will be pleased to have taken home a point from a match in which the opposition controlled proceedings comprehensively, manager Gary Rowett said in a post-match interview on Twitter that he was disappointed to concede so late on.

He said: "We switched off for a couple of seconds. [It was] pleasing, but it could have been even better."

Blues fans took to Twitter after the game to discuss the match with many focusing on the negativity of the performance, even though they are yet to lose a Championship game. 

The Blues host Wolves at St Andrew's on Saturday afternoon. Both sides lie towards the top of the table and both have five points after their first three games. Both sides will be fighting to continue their unbeaten records.
