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

Robshaw tour place under threat
