No escape for spitting Alcaraz

Wigan captain Antolin Alcaraz has accepted an Football Association charge for spitting at an opponent during Sunday's 3-1 defeat at Wolves.

The 29-year-old Paraguay centre-back will serve a three-match suspension after TV cameras caught him spitting at Wolves' Richard Stearman.
