  1. As for Wigan, they stay in the bottom three - they've lost ground on Southampton today and are now one point from safety.

  2. 90+3

    There's the final whistle - Everton win 2-1 and it's another three points in their battle for a top-four spot. They are back into fourth for now.

  3. Caldwell the latest to be booked. He went into Heitinga with a boot high. Luckily there didn't appear to be contact but it was dangerous. Fair decision.

  4. 90+2

    Wigan bang it long via Figueroa but it''s overhit and the ball runs out for a goal kick.

  5. 90+1

    McCarthy lashes a shot over the top from the edge of the box, right of centre. is that the last chance?

  6. 90

    Beausejour crosses well from the left. It's nodded down for Di Santo who is adjudged to bring the ball under control with his arm. Correct decision.

  7. 90

    Figueroa has a shot blocked on the edge of the box as Wigan push for the equaliser.

  8. 89

    Jelavic joins Figueroa in the book.

  9. 89

    Figueroa is booked for catching Naismith late. No difference in that challenge to some that went unpunished earlier.

  10. 88

    Oviedo nicks the ball from Gomez to end Wigan's latest attack down the right.

  11. 87

    A dangerous delivery from Baines is well dealt with by Wigan in their own six-yard box.

  12. 86

    Naismith is stopped by a good challenge in the Wigan box. The ball goes out for a corner.

  13. 85

    Worth mentioning there was a hint of handball about that Kone goal as the ball looped towards him.

  14. 84

    Gomez tries a shot from outside the box. It deflects up off a defender and Howard is able to grab. This is going to be a nervy finish for the home side and their fans.

  15. 82

    GOAL - KONE. Wigan back in it as Kone pokes home after Everton fail to deal with a a looping ball. Maloney's shot flew up into the air. Jagielka and Baines both failed to clear and Kone nudged it past Howard. Another game without a clean sheet for the Toffees who could now panic.

  16. 79

    Jordi Gomez comes on for Wigan, replacing Stam. Wigan must attack now.

  17. 78

    Everton should see it through from here but you never know!

  18. 77

    GOAL - JAGIELKA. Neville swings in a good cross from the right and Jagielka, still up from the corner, nets with a fine header which goes in off the underside of the crossbar.

  19. 76

    Naismith flicks a header down the line to Jelavic. He races down the right before trying to pick out Naismith. However, Boyce's excellent tackle denies the Scot.

  20. 74

    Di Santo gets up for a header but sends it wide under pressure from a home defender. He wants a corner but isn't getting one.
