Wigan were playing Oldham for the second Saturday in a row and took the lead 2-0 with a fourth minute penalty goal from Fred Griffiths. That lead held all the way to half time with Oldham having failed with three shots at goal. Sims, the Oldham goal kicker, eventually landed one on 55 minutes to level the scores at 2-2. Then on 63 minutes, Griffiths kicked a goal to re-establish a Wigan lead at 4-2 after Smethurst had been caught offside. The match was sealed by Wigan with a 72nd Minute try from Geoff Bootle.
