Wigan boss Roberto Martinez felt his side suffered a 'footballing injustice' as they were held to a 1-1 draw by West Brom at the DW Stadium.
Latics' old boy Paul Scharner put another dent in their Premier League survival hopes with a 65th-minute equaliser to earn the West Midlands outfit a point.
Wigan dominated the first half but had to wait until nine minutes after the break before equalising through James McArthur but Athletic's poor home form of just one victory this season was again exposed when Scharner came back to haunt his former side.
The result moved Wigan to equal points with fellow strugglers QPR and Wolves but they remain bottom on goal difference and Martinez was left frustrated.
He told Sky Sports News: "In many ways you share the feeling of a footballing injustice at least because I thought the performance was dominant.
"We created chance after chance and we could have finished the game by winning by a margin of three or four goals in the end. That's how dominant we were.
"Unfortunately, it's been too many times this season that the good play doesn't reflect in the scoreline and that's been the frustration that we end up in the game.
"I thought we defended really, really well and then just a couple of corners which unfortunately that fear of having something to lose really cost us.
"But in terms of the performance, we opened West Brom up and we all know that they're a very good defensive unit. It's just a matter of getting the rewards that the performance deserved.
"If you take the Swansea game away, we've been very consistent and we need to continue this way for the rest of the season. I'm sure lady luck in football will give you back something that you deserve."
