Live Commentary

  • Final whistle has gone here and it has finished goalless. Wigan will be the happier of the two sides as the look to avoid relegation, Tottenham clearly lacked the attacking threat of Gareth Bale.
  • 90' + 3'
    Free-kick to Wigan on the edge of the Tottenham area taken by Ben Watson though it sails harmlessly over.
  • 90'
    Four minutes of time added on here a goal now will surely guarantee all three points for either side!
  • 87'
    Connor Sammon with a chance for Wigan! A rare venture forward for Wigan from Cleverly found Sammon in the area but his shot was disappointing.
  • 86'
    SubstitutionLuka Modric Niko Kranjcar
  • 85'
    SubstitutionHugo Rodallega Mohamed Diame
  • 85'
    SubstitutionCharles N'Zogbia Franco Di Santo
  • 84'
    Tottenham seem to have run out of ideas while Wigan look very comfortable, this looks like it is going to finish goalless.
  • 80'
    Spurs continuing to push forward but Wigan have everyone behind the ball. Lennon found room before crossing but Al Habsi dealt with it comfortably.
  • 78'
    Wigan are rarely venturing forward, you get the impression they will be happy with a point today
  • 77'
    Yellow Card Sandro
  • 74'
    Great chance for Peter Crouch to break the deadlock. Very patient build-up play by Tottenham before lofting a ball in the air Crouch could only head over.
  • 71'
    Penalty appeal for Tottenham turned down. Deep cross well taken down by Crouch whose shot hit Boyce on the arm but the defender could do little to get out of the way.
  • 70'
    Yellow Card Gary Caldwell
  • 68'
    SubstitutionRafael van der Vaart Aaron Lennon
  • 67'
    Lennon now on for Spurs hopefully this change will bring a goal for either side.
  • 66'
    SubstitutionVictor Moses Conor Sammon
  • 63'
    This game is calling out for Aaron Lennon or Gareth Bale on the pitch, it is very narrow with neither team able to create a clear chance.
  • 59'
    Tottenham have really struggled to get going this half, hard to see either team scoring at the moment, it has gone very flat.
  • 57'
    SubstitutionJermain Defoe Peter Crouch
  • 54'
    Good work from Tom Cleverly wide left, he cut in and put in a good cross that Gomes just got fingertips to which diverted the ball out of Rodallega's path.
  • 51'
    Great work from N'Zogbia again as he continues to torment Assou-Ekotto, the Frenchmen fired in a low cross which Gomes couldn't reach and with Rodallega set to tap in Bassong puts in a fantastic last ditch block.
  • 50'
    Wigan start the half on the front foot with a early test for Gomes. N'Zogbia works his way into the Tottenham area before trying to catch Gomes out at his near post but the keeper was equal to it.
  • 49'
    Wigan to get the second half underway with the game goalless.
  • Half-time here at the DW Stadium in a game full of quality but short on chances, Tottenham came on strong towards the end of the first-half though.
  • 45' + 1'
    Both teams looking for a goal before the end of the half, Tottenham have looked the more likely in the last ten minutes.
  • 42'
    Tottenham have had a good spell of possession in the last five minutes, keeping Wigan camped into their own half
  • 39'
    Van Der Vaart with another chance this time he hits the target though it is dealt with comfortably by Al Habsi in the Wigan goal
  • 35'
    Nice play between Tottenham's front three but Van Der Vaart wastes the chance by firing over when he had options to his left
  • 33'
    Lovely football from Wigan. Great work by Figueroa before switching play to Cleverley out wide who put in a dangerous cross that was headed clear by Tottenham, which was picked up by James McCarthy who couldn't hit his volley on target
  • 29'
    Another chance for Wigan and Moses after some great work from N'Zogbia. The Frenchmen worked his way into the Spurs area before pulling it back to Moses who could not test Gomes in goal.
  • 27'
    Best chance so far for Wigan from Victor Moses on the edge of the area. The Nigerian picked up the clearance from a corner before finding room for the shot though he fired over.
  • 23'
    First real chance of the game falls to Jenas of Tottenham. The England man fired in a volley from the edge of the area that Al Habsi in the Wigan goal took a couple of attempts to hold on to.
  • 20'
    Tottenham starting to come into the game more now. Some good build up and a good cross in looked dealt with by the Wigan defence but the header clear took a deflection but was just out of reach for Pavlyuchenko
  • 17'
    Wigan are knocking the ball around with real zip and confidence, ball played through for Rodallega but the striker was offside
  • 12'
    Wigan take a quick free kick that takes Spurs by surprise but N'Zogbia drags his shot well wide
