Wasteful Wigan blow chance to move clear

Wigan Athletic missed the chance to move out of the relegation zone last night, twice giving up the lead as they lost 3-2 to Swansea. Roger Espinoza and James McCarthy twice put Roberto Martinez's side ahead at the DW Stadium, only for equalisers from Angel Rangel and Itay Shechter, above, and then a third from Dwight Tiendalli to leave Wigan three points adrift of safety with two games remaining.

With the FA Cup final against Manchester City on Saturday, Wigan enjoyed the better of the opening exchanges but were let down by some poor defending, allowing the visitors to capitalise. Swansea goalkeeper Michel Vorm was stretchered off late on. MORE

Dzeko strike enough for City

Edin Dzeko scored the only goal of the game as Manchester City warmed up for the FA Cup final with a 1-0 victory over West Bromwich Albion. The Bosnian struck with 10 minutes of the first-half left at the Etihad, as both sides hit the bar in an entertaining match. MORE

Rashid helps tip Ballance for Yorks

Robshaw tour place under threat

Chris Robshaw's place in the England squad could be in doubt, with Stuart Lancaster thinking of omitting the captain from the squad for next month's trip to Argentina. A number of uncapped players are expected to be promoted. MORE

Lions apologise for offensive tweets

The British and Irish Lions have apologised for any offence caused by "recent and inappropriate tweets" on their Twitter account. Two tweets have been removed, including one featuring a picture of an injured animal. The Lions tour Australia this summer.

Wiggins slips as Italy lead the way
