  2. FULL-TIME: Sunderland remain unbeaten this season, but they record their first victory of the Premier League campaign thanks to Steven Fletcher's fifth goal in four games. It was the hosts first win at the Stadium of Light since March and was also Wigan's third successive defeat.

  3. 90+4

    Moments after Arouna Kone put the ball out for a throw with a poor pass, he concedes a soft free-kick.

  4. 90+3

    Larsson crossfield pass to Stephane Sessegnon is a beauty, but he can't quite find James McClean as a Wigan defender clears.

  5. 90+1

    The home supporters were clearly not happy after seeing that board go with showing five minutes. Time for Wigan to try and get a last-gasp equaliser perhaps!

  6. 90

    Gary Caldwell and Steven Fletcher come together once again and Sunderladn are awarded the free-kick as the board goes up with five minutes of stoppage time to be added on.

  7. 88

    Steven Fletcher and Seb Larsson are down and the game is so stretched at the moment as Wigan pile men forward looking to get the equaliser.

  8. 87

    YELLOW CARD: Maynor Figueroa is booked for a very late challenge which is spotted by Howard Webb.

  9. 85

    SUBSTITUTIONS: Double change for Wigan as Callum McManaman and Ryo Miyaichi replace James McArthur and Emmerson Boyce. They're going for broke!

  10. 83

    James McClean is given a barracking from his own fans for not continuing his run.

  11. 82

    YELLOW CARD: Franco Di Santo clatters into the back of Danny Rose, shoving his opponent into the advertising hoardings. A show of frustration from the striker!

  12. 81

    Come to think of it, Robert Martinez's side have drawn just one away game in 2012 in the Premier League (W5 D1 L5).

  13. 80

    And remember, Sunderland have won none of their last five home games in the Premier League, but have lost just one in that run.

  14. 79

    Wigan tend to score goals, just two of their last 16 games have ended without them scoring in the top flight.

  15. 78

    SUBSTITUTION: David Vaughan replaces Adam Johnson, who has done well in his first game back. The best is yet to come for Johnson surely!

  16. 77

    The inswinger from Adam Johnson is straight into the hands of Ali Al-Habsi though.

  17. 76

    Gary Caldwell hacks Steven Fletcher to the floor and now Sunderland win a free-kick in a position of real promise.

  18. 75

    As the clock ticks, so will those nerves from the passionate home supporters the longer it stays at one-nil.

  19. 74

    Jean Beausejour takes the free-kick on the right edge of the area and looks for Franco Di Santo, but the striker lofts the ball over the crossbar.

  20. 72

    YELLOW CARD: James McClean is booked for bringing down James McCarthy right on the edge of the box. That was close to being a penalty!
