Wigan still bottom of EPL, Swans win again

Wigan Athletic manager Roberto Martinez insisted his side can still survive despite a 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion on Saturday that kept his side rooted to the bottom of the English Premier League.

James McArthur put the home side ahead on 54 minutes but Paul Scharner equalised 11 minutes later to clinch a point.

Swansea City moved into the top half of the table after a 3-0 win at Fulham in Saturday's other game.

Wigan's draw made them level on points with Wolves and QPR but still propping up the standings.

Wigan dominated the match but were left to rue a host of missed opportunities.

"It's a really frustrating feeling and you feel it is a football injustice but today I really enjoyed the performance," Martinez said.

"At the moment it is not going our way. To finish that first half 0-0 was tough to take but in the second half we started on the front foot, we earned the goal ... then they had two corners and they scored.

"We need a scrappy win to build a little bit of confidence and belief. In football terms it is impossible to explain with that performance how we didn't end up with three points.

"I'm really proud of the players because if we carry on playing like that lady luck will come to the DW Stadium.

"I feel this squad is too strong not to carry on performing in that manner and if we do we'll get the points, I've got no doubts about that."

Wigan could have been 4-0 up at half-time but were made to pay for squandering a hatful of chances.

McArthur scrambled the ball home to break the deadlock but former Wigan man Scharner equalised for West Brom and the home side could not find a winner.

In the other match, Swansea's loan signing Gylfi Sigurdsson scored the first two goals and Joe Allen grabbed the other to lift the Welsh side to eighth after a third win on the bounce.

The performance left manager Brendan Rodgers singing his side's praises.

"It was a phenomenal performance," he said.

"I felt this was our biggest game of the season and I said that to the players beforehand.

"After the high of last week in terms of the result and the performance against Manchester City, I didn't want us to just be a team that raises their performance for the big games.

"We've consistently done very well and got good results against the big teams.

"Our improvement has been continual as the season has gone on and I knew Fulham's record at home has been incredible really.

"But I thought we put on a real clinic today of what we are about."

Manchester United will be out to extend their lead over Manchester City to four points by winning at Wolves on Sunday.
