Daniel Ayala equalised for the Championship club in the 89th minute, however, Wigan’s lead was restored four minutes into stoppage time when Thelo Aasgard curled in from range past Aynsley Pears in the Blackburn goal.
Chipping in with two assists and a goal from distance, Power was excellent for the Latics against their Championship opposition.
The 28-year-old covered a lot of distance himself, whilst keeping the ball well and switching the play to help his side get on the front foot.
Power has been brilliant all season, and he is set to be a crucial figure as Wigan look for a way back to the Championship.
