Roberto Martinez: Wigan boss was delighted with his team against Tottenham

Martinez was disappointed at seeing two points slip away from his team in the dying stages at the DW Stadium, but took several pluses from the game.

He signalled out James McCarthy, Jordi Gomez and James McArthur for their efforts along with Callum McManaman, who was involved in both Wigan goals.

"He looked a real threat," Martinez said. "He wins the corner, and then obviously the goal that he scores from open play is of a real, real talent.

"I think you saw an incredible lesson of tactical awareness from James McCarthy, James McArthur and Jordi Gomez.

"I asked them to do something very difficult and they mastered it. I couldn't be prouder."

irst Townsend, now Chiles. What next ITV? Comedy that you can actually watch without vomiting up your own spleen? I'll be sad to see Matt Smith go though. I actually quite like him. Plus, he was good in Doctor Who.

wful, awful pundit. He was crap on BBC, and offered a little more analysis than Robbie Savage - apart from the delivery of banality in a sexy accent. Also, as I'm Irish he'll never be more then a slimy, hand-balling f**ker in my eyes.
