Late joy for Latics

WIGAN ATHLETIC 2 BIRMINGHAM CITY 1

CARL MARKHAM

Defender Maynor Figueroa was Wigan's unlikely saviour as he smashed home a late winner to ignite his side's survival battle in the Premier League.





His side appeared to have been frustrated in their bid for victory despite throwing everything at the visitors in the latter stages of the second half after Tom Cleverley tapped in to equalise Liam Ridgewell's disputed sixth-minute opener in the 25th minute.

But when the impressive Cleverley rolled the ball back from the byline in the second of five minutes of added time the left-back switched it on to his weaker right foot before smashing a shot past goalkeeper Ben Foster.
