Stoke came from behind twice to earn a 2-2 draw at home to Wigan but had goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen to thank for saving an 89th-minute Hugo Rodallega penalty.
Emmerson Boyce's early header was cancelled out by Tuncay Sanli's first goal for the Potters before the interval.
Maynor Figueroa scored one of the goals of the season with a 72nd-minute free-kick from inside his own half but Ryan Shawcross equalised with a header and then Sorensen saved from Rodallega's spot-kick.
