Published Add your comment

James McArthur boosted Wigan's survival hopes with a dramatic goal which handed the Latics a 2-1 win over fellow Barclays Premier League strugglers Bolton at the Reebok Stadium.

McArthur followed up a 75th-minute drive by Victor Moses which struck home keeper Adam Bogdan and rebounded to the Scot who could miss from six yards.

Gary Caldwell headed the visitors into a 43rd-minute lead before Mark Davies lashed an equaliser on 67. Bolton's Ryo Miyaichi was denied by Ali Al Habsi late on.
