Returned to the starting line-up in place of Sorensen but had precious little to do in the first half, where he seldom touched the ball. More involved in the second, making a fine save from an offside Rodallega before preventing Sammon from range and Cleverley from close quarters. Could do nothing about the Colombian's goal.
With Rodallega lining up directly against him the defender had to put in a disciplined shift and rarely bombed on in support of Pennant.
Totally untroubled at left-back in the first period but was turned a few times by N'Zogbia in the second.
Marshalled young Sammon with ease but struggled against the trickier, quicker Rodallega. Put in a terrific tackle to stop N'Zogbia from running through on goal.
A rare start for the Welshman, who has lost his regular role at left-back to Wilson, in the middle as Huth and Faye were both absent. Allowed Rodallega to jump above him for the goal.
A thorn in Figueroa's side throughout, the winger looked lively and forced Al-Habsi into making a decent stop.
The man who limped off at Wembley returned but did not look sharp at all and rarely got to use the afterburners. Hauled off for Whitehead.
Wasted a decent chance to strike from distance by skewing wide when he had the chance to steady himself for a full throttle attempt on the half volley. Kept it neat and tidy and almost hit a stunning equaliser with a free-kick that went only narrowly over.
Delivered plenty of dangerous throw-ins, his side's primary source of danger in the first 45, but also spread the ball with his feet with style at times.
Fought for every high challenge but should have done better when gifted with the chance to open the scoring from a loose ball in the box. Missed a free header in the second that he really should have turned in. Taken off for Carew.
Tirelessly tracked down the ball and competed in the air and down the flanks, but the striker was short of accuracy with his chances and final touches.
Ali Al Habsi
Commanded his area and dealt with the high ball well on a windy afternoon, making some important, if not demanding, stops.
Expertly read a loose ball to position himself on the line and force Jones's effort away from goal.
The man who scored from inside his own half at this stadium last year carelessly gave away possession too often in the first half, appearing uncomfortable on the ball throughout. Made a critic tackle to prevent Walters from stroking home in the second half.
Much more composed than his defensive partner, the captain looked calm all afternoon.
Made a mess of a simple backpass in the early stages and fortunate that Al-Habsi was on hand to collect as Jones looked to pounce. Saw yellow for a petulant first-half foul but rarely troubled in the second.
Hustled well in the early stages but rarely stamped his mark on the game.
The man who netted twice against West Ham struggled to get going and failed to step up to the plate in the first half. A mazy run won a corner after the break but otherwise quiet from the Frenchman.
Had Wigan's first chance of the game after winning the ball and charging forward, but the Senegalese midfeilder's shot screwed well wide of goal. Had an effort in the second half but it was his playmaking skills that proved decisive as he burst down the left and clipped in for Rodallega to nod home.
The Irishman, believed to be wanted by Arsenal and Liverpool, was quiet in the first half other than for a meaty challenge on Jones that left both players writhing in pain. Saw yellow in the second half.
Handed a start after scoring the equaliser against West Ham, but the Irishman hardly had a kick. He stepped up in the second half and won the ball from Shawcross before drilling it at goal, only to be denied by Begovic. Taken off for Cleverley.
Scored the goal that kept Wigan up. Invisible in the first half but irrepressible in the second. The Colombian was dynamic and caused WIlkinson problems before rising to head home from close range. Limped off to be replaced by Di Santo.
