Wigan manager Roberto Martinez hailed the performance of striker Victor Moses after he celebrated his 21st birthday 48 hours early with a crucial role in the 2-1 win at West Brom.

Moses scored his first goal for 13 months to cancel out the opener from Steven Reid's free-kick and then won the penalty converted by Jordi Gomez for the winner.

Martinez said: "I don't think Victor has had a bad spell this season. He has been very consistent. He is only 20, he had a great birthday present, on Monday he is 21 and the first goal was as good a finish as you are going to get in this league."
