Wigan and Bolton will have to do it all over again after this FA Cup Fourth Round tie failed to produce a winner at the Reebok Stadium.
This was the third time this season the two sides have met with the previous two encounters both ending in a stalemate so it came as little surprise that this game finished with the same outcome.
Robero Martinez made a total of eight changes to the side that started against Aston Villa in mid week with only Emmerson Boyce, Maynor Figueroa and James McCarthy surviving from Tuesday evening.
Al Habsi was unavailable for selection so Mike Pollitt made his first start of the campaign having only made one substitute appearance after Chris Kirkland took a knock at the same ground just over three weeks ago.
Callum McManaman was once again chosen to spearhead the attack in this competition as he continued his progress in the first team and once again impressed with a polised performance that will have had his manager smiling.
Wigan were bouyed by the inclusion of Victor Moses whose pace caused the Bolton defence no ends of problems.
However it was the home side that almost got off to a dream start when captain Kevin Davies played in Johan Elmander but the Sweden international striker’s effort was deflected over the bar by Pollitt.
Wigan’s responded with Victor Moses intercepting a backpass from Matthew Taylor but the 20-year-old could only send his shot into the side netting from a tight angle after rounding Jaaskelainen in the Bolton goal.
Moses then looked to get on the end of a Jordi Gomez through ball but was caught offside as he continued to frustrate the Wanderers rearguard.
He was then denied by a block from David Wheater, making his Bolton debut following his move from Middlesbrough.
Gomez tried his luck from outside the area on three occasions but failed to beat Jaaskelainen
Martin Petrov went close for Owen Coyle’s side with his first attempt flying inches wide of the post and another blocked by Ben Watson.
End to end action from the opening 45 minutes but no breakthrough from either side and the second half proved to be much of the same.
Watson forced a corner 10 minutes after the restart when his free kick was pushed behind by Jaaskelainen.
Substitute Robbie Blake had his effort from distance cut out by Gary Caldwell and the Wigan defender was then on hand to block an Elmander shot moments later.
McManaman went close to adding to his goal against Hull City in the previous round but was thwarted by a fine save from Jaaskelainen in the final exchanges and then Wheater almost grabbed it for Bolton but his shot went narrowily wide of the upright.
So both sides will have to try again in a fortnight by which time they will know who their opponents in the Fifth Round will be should they be victorious at the DW Stadium.
In the meantime Latics will be switching their attention to a tough trip to the West Midlands and an encounter with West Brom who have had the weekend off thanks to their Third Round exit at Reading.
