  1. That's it, Wigan win thanks to two goals from Arouna Kone and one from Maynor Figueroa. They coasted home after Pogrebnyak's red card on 55 minutes. Thanks for looking in.

  2. 90+1

    Wigan are comfortably winding down the clock, and as it stands will move out of the drop zone with Villa losing at Arsenal.

  3. 89

    McCleary fouls McArthur as three minutes are flashed up on the board - three too many probably for most Reading fans.

  4. 88

    This will be a real blow for Reading, who had found an improved vein for form of late.

  5. 87

    Wigan have a habit of climbing out of trouble late in the season, and this may kick start another great escape.

  6. 85

    The third goal gave Wigan breathing space, and the sending off of Pogrebnyak made it all too easy.

  7. 84

    Lots of blue seats can be seen as some home fans make for the exits.

  8. 82

    Alcaraz replaces Boyce.

  9. 80

    Kone goes for his hat trick, but his shot from 25 yards out, dead centre, shapes a long way wide of Federici's left post.

  10. 79

    Another good save from Federici, Gomez stabbing the ball from the edge of the box and the Reading keeper diving to his right to push it away.

  11. 77

    Some Reading fans are already drifting away with their side seemingly headed for defeat.

  12. 76

    Figueroa forces a good save from Federici, lashing a shot from 25 yards with his left foot that the Aussie palms away high to his right.

  13. 75

    Di Santo fires just over from a tight angle, and is then replaced by Jordi Gomez.

  14. 74

    Ali Al Habsi has not had a serious save to make yet, which tells a story in itself.

  15. 73

    With Villa drawing at Arsenal, Wigan will remain in the bottom three if it stays like this.

  16. 72

    Le Fondre has hardly seen the ball since coming on, and a cross towards the substitute is easily cut out.

  17. 71

    Wigan are looking very compsed, playing it out of defence and playing keep-ball.

  18. 70

    Garath McCleary replaces Karacan.

  19. 68

    The numerical advantage is really beginning to tell as Wigan repel a rare Reading attack.

  20. 67

    Reading just cannot get out of their half as Wigan keep their foot on the gas.
