Aston Villa striker Emile Heskey was fortunate not to be sent off after making contact with referee Mike Jones as relegation-threatened Wigan earned a precious point from a 1-1 draw in the battle for survival.

Heskey appeared to lose all self control after not winning a free-kick and barged into the official but he escaped with a yellow card before being substituted at half-time.

Charles N'Zogbia gave the Latics the lead but Ashley Young levelled for the home side with his ninth goal of the campaign.
