The Right Result Verdict - Wigan v Man City

WIGAN ATHLETIC v MANCHESTER CITY - Richard done

Sunday 28 September 2008

Controversy reigned at the JJB Stadium as Wigan Athletic prevailed against Manchester City via a penalty gained with an overly threatrical fall by Wilson Palacios. However, evidence suggested that there was some contact so the Right Result spotlight is turned to the other end of the pitch. With City 1-2 behind just before the break, centre-back Richard Dunne was tripped in the area by Emile Heskey. Strangely, despite the absence of any other obvious offence, referee Steve Bennett awarded a free-kick to the Latics when it should have been a City penalty.

The Right Result is a 2-2 draw.

This aticle hasn't been posted by anyone here at vital latics. my personal opinion is that Kompany and Richards could have both been sent off for two yellows and therefore we could have won by more. Hypothetical as Kirkland has a good record of saving penalties so there is go guarentee that it would have gone in the net. Can't see the point of this article myself other than to wind people up
