  1. 95

    That's it. Sunderland win 3-2 at the DW Stadium. Wigan without a win at home since 24th November and that will have to chance very soon if they are going to survive.

  2. 94

    Larsson running the clock down in the Wigan half.

  3. 94

    McCarthy into Boselli but it's easy for Mignolet.

  4. 93

    Sunderland sub. Vaughan off for El Mohamady

  5. 93

    One attack after another at the moment. Sunderland hanging on. Caldwell is joining in the attacks now for Wigan. Gomez eventually fires over.

  6. 90

    5 minutes of injury time. That's given the crowd a lift.

  7. 89

    McCarthy has a strike but it's blocked again

  8. 88

    The ball is played into the Sunderland box again and it's fantastic defending by Colback who heads it away from Henriquez who was hovering.

  9. 87

    Figueroa over hits a pass and it provides Sunderland with the chance to have a rest.... for now.

  10. 85

    McArthur gets his legs in a tangle and can't deliver into the box. It was packed full of Wigan players.

  11. 84

    Bardsley comes on for Sessegnon to give the Sunderland defence some help.

  12. 83

    Henriquez scores and receives a yellow for a late tackle.

  13. 81

    Figueroa with a thunderous strike from 25 yards but it's just wide. The crowd are really singing now.

  14. 80

    Maloney is the man who can make things happen for Wigan. He breaks into the box but is stopped by Bramble.

  15. 80

    It's a debut goal for Wigan sub Henriquez. Maloney with a great little cross and the 18 year old heads in. 10 minutes left.

  16. 78

    I said Di santo has been poor. Boselli is on in his place.

  17. The earlier yellow card was for Boyce and not Caldwell. Boyce has since been taken off.

  18. 76

    McClean comes on for the impressive Johnson.

  19. 75

    Wigan waste yet another corner. Martinez is going mad on the touchline.

  20. 72

    Maloney's free kick beats Mignolet but clips the outside of the post.

  21. 71

    Boyce off for on loan Man United player Henriquez.

  22. 71

    Yellow for Bramble. Late on Gomez.

  23. 70

    At the other end Fletcher sets Sessegnon up beautifully. He's one on one but wants far too much time and a combination of Al Habsi and the Wigan defence clear. Will Sunderland be made to play?

  24. 67

    Gomez takes the free kick and it flicks off Fletcher and onto the top of the Sunderland bar

  25. 64

    Colback fouls Maloney on the right hand side of the box.

  26. 64

    A rare touch of the ball for Di Santo in the box but he gives it away. He's had a poor afternoon so far.

  27. 63

    Maloney with another chance but his strike bends wide. Wigan getting closer and dominating.

  28. 62

    Wigan want a handball but it's not given. Di Santo is convinced it's a penalty but the ref waves the players away.

  29. 62

    Confusion in the Sunderland box. O'Shea and Mignolet all over the place but the Irishman clears.

  30. 61

    Maloney can't quite find a way in behind the Sunderland defence. Excellent defending again.

  31. 60

    Wigan have been camped in the Sunderland half for the last two or three minutes.

  32. 59

    Beausejour with a great ball in from the left but O'Shea is there to head away.

  33. 57

    Johnson weaves his way into the box and it takes 2 Wigan defenders to stop him. He's really enjoying himself out there today.

  34. 56

    Good defending by Johnson helping out at the back as well as pushing on.

  35. 55

    N'Diaye is everywhere, runs the ball out of play on this occasion.

  36. 53

    Wigan really trying to have a go. Space left at the back. McArthur goes down in the box but no penalty.

  37. 51

    Fletcher the creator this time. Crosses in for N'Diaye but Caldwell blocks.

  38. 50

    Larsson through on the left but he drags his shot wide. Great start to the second period.

  39. 48

    Great save by Mignolet. Maloney found space on the edge of the box but the Sunderland stopper was more than equal to it.

  40. 48

    Sunderland looking to catch Wigan on the break. Vaughan this time can't quite release Fletcher though.

  41. 47

    Wigan, as you would expect, with plenty of the ball so far.

  42. 46

    McArthur with a quick strike at goal but it's comfortable for Mignolet.

  43. 45

    It's a Premier League debut for Espinoza. Sunderland get the second half going.

  44. 45

    Espinoza on for Stam for Wigan.

  45. The sides are back out at the DW Stadium. Martin O'Neill will be looking for more of the same from his side. Can Roberto Martinez's Wigan grab the next goal and really make a game of it?

  46. Do you think Wigan can pull this back? If so, why not head over to Sky Bet. They can offer you 6/1 for a 3-3 draw.

  47. 48

    Sunderland roar back to take a 3-1 half time lead at the DW Stadium.

  48. 48

    Set piece wasted and the Wigan fans groans can be heard.

  49. 48

    Maloney and Stam combine but Mignolet palms away for another corner.

  50. 47

    The corner was cleared but when Stam's cross falls to Figueroa to head at goal it's easily gathered by Mignolet.

  51. 46

    Corner for Wigan. Can they pinch one before half time?

  52. 45

    3 minutes of injury time added on.

  53. 44

    Sunderland again with plenty of the ball but N'Diaye can't release Fletcher this time.

  54. 42

    Fletcher gets his second. He wins the intial ball into the box by flicking it onto Johnson. Johnson immediately sets him back up and Fletchers finish is emphatic.

  55. 39

    Sunderland defending their 18 yard box well. Wigan pushing on more now. Stam a threat from the right.

  56. 37

    Wigan get corner number two. The ball falls nicely for Caldwell but he elects to pass rather than shoot and the danger is cleared.

  57. 36

    N'Diaye shrugs two Wigan midfielders off and releases Johnson. N'Diaye is having a terrific game.

  58. 35

    Ten minutes till the break....

  59. 34

    More good play by Sunderland down the right between Sessegnon and Vaughan and when the ball breaks to Vaughan again he hooks his shot wide. Should have done better.

  60. 33

    Vaughan breaks again but there is only Fletcher in the box this time.

  61. 32

    Figueroa with time but his delivery is rushed and Sunderland clear. Strangely for Martinez's side they are struggling to get into their passing stride.

  62. 31

    Johnson continues to get the better of Stam. N'Diaye in the meantime has a cross shot which Wigan stab clear.

  63. 29

    Gomez with a strike from distance but it's easy for Mignolet.

  64. 28

    Di Santo has hardly had a kick thus far for Wigan. First corner of the game goes to Wigan though but O'Shea clears.

  65. 26

    Beausejour with a cross that hits Gardner on the arm and it's a Wigan free kick. Cleared.

  66. 24

    Good play by Vaughan, Fletcher and Johnson but Wigan manage to clear the danger this time.

  67. Other than the opening 5 minutes Sunderland have been by far the better side.

  68. 21

    Good play down the left by Johnson and N'Diaye. N'Diaye with the cross and Fletcher forces the ball in. No more than Sunderland deserve.

  69. 20

    Vaughan with a neat run but his shot lacked power from 18 yards. Good move involving N'Diaye.

  70. It was a costly foul from Boyce. Sunderland fans making plenty of noise now.

  71. 17

    Gardner makes no mistake from the spot. Al Habsi dived to his left Gardner placed it to the right.

  72. 16

    Larsson with a free kick 23 yards out and it hits a Wigan arm in the wall...

  73. 15

    Yellow for Boyce for a foul on Johnson.

  74. 14

    Johnson picks the ball up on the left and his early ball just beats Fletcher at full stretch.

  75. 13

    Sessegnon plays a quick ball over the top but Johnson can't keep the ball in play. Sunderland fans will expect more from these two men.

  76. 12

    Wigan enjoying a spell of possession in the Sunderland half.

  77. 11

    Maloney and Beausejour combine again but the flag is up for offside.

  78. 9

    Stam gives away another free kick. Larsson takes it again. O'Shea meets it and it creeps just wide. Good response from Sunderland.

  79. 6

    Sunderland try to hit back with a free kick. Larsson whips in a great ball and the new boy N'Diaye has a great chance 6 yards out but it goes over. Big chance.

  80. The last time Sunderland won an away game after going a goal behind? 4 years ago...

  81. 4

    Superb work down the left by Beausejour who picks Stam out but his shot is deflected in via Vaughan. Messy but Wigan have the lead.

  82. 3

    Bramble hits it long but it goes through to Al Habsi.

  83. Wigan have never failed to score in a home Premier League game against Sunderland.

  84. 2

    Stam injured on the right and we will re start with a Sunderland throw in.

  85. 1

    N'Diaye involved straight away winning the ball off Maloney.

  86. Wigan it is to kick off and away we go.

  87. Couple of pre match photographs and we are ready to go.

  88. Out come the teams....

  89. Wigan outside the bottom three on goal difference. Roberto Martinez's men could really do with a result today. They normally hit their stride at this stage of the season....

  90. You can get involved on Twitter too. Send your thoughts on the game to me @OfficialTMCD1 and I will try and get a few on over the course of the 90 minutes.

  91. If you fancy a flutter why not head over to our friends at Sky Bet. They have Wigan down to win at 23/20 the draw at 12/5 and a Sunderland win at 9/4.

  92. It's a first Sunderland start for N'Diaye today as well so the travelling fans will hope to see a good performance from their side.

  93. Sunderland have lost just one of their last six league matches against Wigan and there has not been a goalless draw in the last 16 games between the two sides in all competitions.

  94. Wigan are without a win at home since 24th November. Can they claim all three points today?

  95. Sunderland Subs: Westwood, Wickham, McFadden, Kilgallon, McClean, El Mohamady, Bardsley.

  96. Sunderland team to face Wigan: Mignolet, N'Diaye, Larsson, Gardner, Colback, Vaughan, O'Shea, Bramble, Johnson, Fletcher, Sessegnon.
