Wigan's survival hopes received an unexpected boost as they beat a flailing - and rapidly failing - Liverpool 2-1 on Merseyside.

Unlike in recent weeks when the Latics have been unable to hold on to good positions they bounced back from Luis Suarez's equaliser to claim a vital victory.

Shaun Maloney's penalty gave the visitors a half-time lead and despite being pegged back just two minutes after the break Gary Caldwell secured Wigan's first win at Anfield.
