The Latics secured a last-gasp point at the DW Stadium thanks to Shaun Maloney's strike, following second-half strikes from Rickie Lambert and Morgan Schneiderlin

    Ali Al Habsi

    A steady afternoon for the Oman shot-stopper, who did not have too many saves to make, mainly due to the poor finishing from the Saints. Could do little about either strike.

  • Gary Caldwell

    Gary Caldwell

    Grabbed the goal to put his side in the ascendancy and was commanding throughout at the back. Looked slightly sloppy in possession from time to time, though.

  • Ronnie Stam

    Ronnie Stam

    Provided a constant attacking option for the Latics down the right-hand side but his defending left a lot to be desired at times.

  • Maynor Figueroa

    Maynor Figueroa

    Another impressive showing from the Honduran who showed a calmness in possession and a desire to support the attack when possible.

  • James McCarthy

    James McCarthy

    A typically neat performance from Wigan's Mr Reliable, who sprayed the ball around the pitch, but also showed good off-the-ball discipline.

  • James McArthur

    James McArthur

    Another good performance from the Scot who got stuck in and kept his side ticking over with the ball.

  • R. Espinoza

    2.50

    R. Espinoza

    An effective performance from the Honduran midfielder but he was often guilty of over-playing when on the ball, costing the Latics possession of the ball.

  • Jean Beausejour
    1

    3.00

    Jean Beausejour

    The Chilean wing-back put in a tremendous shift and set up Caldwell's opener as well as teeing up Di Santo for a chance in the opening period.

  • Paul Scharner

    Paul Scharner

    The Latics icon may take some time to get back into the pace of this league once again, looked sluggish at times on his second debut. Set up Maloney for the equaliser.

  • Franco Di Santo

    Franco Di Santo Flop of the Match

    Tried hard but never looked likely of repeating his midweek goalscoring heroics. Went close in the first half and ran the Saints' defence into the ground but offered very little quality-wise.

  • Shaun Maloney

    3.50

    Shaun Maloney

    Tricky and unpredictable performance from the Scot who looked to get at the visitors' backline at every opportunity. Secured what could be a vital point with an instinctive strike at the back post.

Substitutions

  • Jordi Gómez

    Jordi Gómez

    Brought on to get Wigan going in possession once again but was strangely a passenger throughout most of the second period.

  • Ángelo Henríquez

    Ángelo Henríquez

    Had little impact during time on the pitch.

  • Callum McManaman

    2.50

    Callum McManaman

    Ran the flanks but was also guilty of giving away possession.

  • Artur Boruc

    3.00

    Artur Boruc

    Steady presence in the Saints' goal and had no chance with Caldwell's header or Maloney's strike. Dealt with everything else effectively.

  • Nathaniel Clyne
    2
    1
    2.50

    Nathaniel Clyne

    The right-back was unable to make some of his trademark marauding runs as he was pegged back by Beausejour. Often caught out of position but stuck to his guns.

  • Maya Yoshida

    2.50

    Maya Yoshida

    The Japanese centre-half still looks nervous defensively at this level and was tested by the pace of Di Santo and Maloney.

  • Jos Hooiveld

    3.00

    Jos Hooiveld

    Calm performance from the experienced centre-half who rarely gave Di Santo a sniff and was effective aerially.

  • Luke Shaw

    3.50

    Luke Shaw Top of the Match

    Another impressive display from the highly coveted left-back, who never allowed Stam the freedom of the right flank and got forward to aid his side's attacks too.

  • Morgan Schneiderlin
    1

    3.50

    Morgan Schneiderlin

    A steady afternoon's work for the combative midfield man, who was never afraid to stick a foot in or receive a pass to relieve the pressure on his defence.

  • G. Ramírez
    1
    0
    3.00

    G. Ramírez

    A constant thorn in the Latics' defence with his clever movement and tricky footwork but blazed over a gilt-edged chance which he should have buried. Was hauled off at the break.

  • Jack Cork

    0
    3.00

    Jack Cork

    Alongside Schneiderlin, the young midfielder showed good positional awareness and was a steady influence in possession throughout. Provided a lovely cross for the equaliser.

  • Jason Puncheon

    2.50

    Jason Puncheon

    Quiet afternoon for the winger, who failed to get the better of his marker Figueroa and did not track back to help his full-back in either half.

  • Rickie Lambert

    3.00

    Rickie Lambert

    Not the industrious striker's best performance in a Southampton shirt. Was bullied at times by Scharner and Caldwell in the air but when he lost the Scot, he was able to head past Al-Habsi for the equaliser.

  • Jay Rodriguez
    2
    0
    3.00

    Jay Rodriguez

    A disappointing display from a striker who, understandably, looks frustrated at having to play on the wing. Recovered to set up what looked to be the winner for Schneiderlin.

Substitutions

  • Steven Davis

    3.00

    Steven Davis

    Introduced at the break and provided a steady influence in possession as he sought to get his side on top in the second half.

  • James Ward-Prowse

    James Ward-Prowse

    Freed Rodriguez to set up the goal which put the Saints back in front late on.

  • Adam Lallana

    2.50

    Adam Lallana

    Did little during his time on the pitch as Pochettino sought to gain control in the game once more.
