Wigan boss Roberto Martinez has received an apology from referees' chief Mike Riley following his side's controversial defeat at Chelsea on Saturday.

Martinez claimed his relegation-threatened side were "robbed" as Chelsea struck twice from apparently offside positions to secure a 2-1 Barclays Premier League win at Stamford Bridge.

He has since spoken to Riley, of the Professional Game Match Officials Board, over the matter and says the body accept mistakes were made. "He just said he understands that at the level of refereeing in this league, they should get that call right," the Spaniard said.
