General Game Stats Chart

Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +3 Aston Villa continue to flood the box with crosses as they chase a late consolation but Wigan continue to defend valiantly.
90' +2 Into the second minute of three minutes of stoppage time.
90' +1 Guzan denies McManaman at the near post with his feet. It won't matter much to the scoreline, but after conceding 15 goals in his late three games I am sure the American is just pleased to keep the ball out of his net.
90' A. Weimann gets yellow.
Andi Weimann is booked for Aston Villa as the Villains' woes continue.
88' With Kone due to depart on African Cup of Nations duty it's yet to be seen how big a miss he'll be for Wigan Athletic. Judging on today's performance it could ultimately decide Wigan's Premier League fate at the end of the season.
87' C. McManaman enters the game and replaces A. Koné.
Wigan sub: Kone OFF McManaman ON
86' Weimann fires in a shot that drifts just wide from the edge of the area. Al-Habsi had it covered though as Aston Villa fans continue to pile out of Villa Park.
85' Caldwell concedes a corner. Villa take it quickly but Wigan get it away.
83' I can't recall Al-Habsi being forced into making any saves so far this afternoon. Wigan have dealt with a limited Villa attack superbly, and have taken their chances at the other hand to deservedly lead 3-0 without even having to perform at their best.
80' M. Lowton gets yellow.
That change sees Wigan change from 5-3-2 to 4-4-2 as they try to preserve what would be a rare clean sheet for the Latics. If they continue to frustrate Villa it will be their second clean sheet in 18 matches.
Lowton is booked for Aston Villa as he dives in on Figueroa in middle of the park.
