Attendance: 150 approx

Referee:

A match that can be summed up in seven phrases.
They score
They miss a penalty
We miss a penalty
They have a man sent off
They have another man sent off
We have a man sent off
We equilise in the last minute of added time.

And that was about it really. Sunderland were the dominant side in the first half but created very few clear cut chances agaisnt a Latics side who have conceeded ten goals in the last two games.

Latics defence was caught out several times last week against Man United when trying to play an offside trap and once again it was a forward catching the Wigan dfence napping who burst onto a ball through the middle and slotted the ball past Nicholls in the Wigan net.

Latics offered vcery little going forwarded and were hampered by the early loss of Tomas Cwkya up front replaced by Mc Manaman.

Sunderland nearly made it two on the stroke of half time when a flicked on header just whizzed past the post.

The second half was in much the same vein but came to life, when Nicholls rose unchallenged to take a cross and promptly spilled the ball. In the melee that followed a WIgan defender was adjudged to have brought down a Subderland player.
Nicholls redeemed himself with a good save from the penalty.
Shortly after, Colgan in the Sunderland goal was deemed to have brought down a Wigan striker, whose dive was theatrical to say the least.
Breeze stepped up and blasted the ball agaisnt the bar, the ball was played back in and Colgan saved the shot.

Sunderland then had two players sent off and Latics one as the game descended into a farce but in the dying seconds of the third minute of time added on Mc Manamen flicked the ball past Colgan for an equiliser

Star Player

Erik Edman, showed his quality in another bid to get match fit. WOuld surely have earned the attention of the watching scouts.
