Antolin Alcaraz's late header salvaged a point for Wigan in a 1-1 draw after debutant Asamoah Gyan had opened the scoring for 10-man Sunderland at the DW Stadium.

The Wearsiders had their captain Lee Cattermole - a former Latics player - sent off in the first half but took the lead in the 66th minute when substitute Gyan converted Jordan Henderson's cross.

The hosts came away with a point though thanks to Alcaraz, whose effort three minutes from time caught Black Cats goalkeeper Simon Mignolet cold.
