Wigan and Bolton share spoils

Published Add your comment

Wigan and Bolton both extended their unbeaten Barclays Premier League runs as they had to settle for a 1-1 draw in Saturday afternoon's derby at the DW Stadium.

After a first half notable mainly for a serious-looking injury to James McCarthy, it was the hosts who took the lead with 59 minutes gone as a lovely move involving Charles N'Zogbia and Franco Di Santo ended with Hugo Rodallega beating Jussi Jaaskelainen.

But Bolton took only seven minutes to get back on level terms, Johan Elmander netting his fifth goal of the season, as the Trotters made it five games unbeaten and Wigan four.
