Wigan manager Roberto Martinez looks set to appeal a Football Association charge for comments he made after the Barclays Premier League game against Manchester United on September 15.

Wigan lost 4-0 at Old Trafford during which the Latics boss was unhappy about a penalty awarded to the hosts, as well as a Danny Welbeck challenge on Franco di Santo which he felt warranted a red card.

Martinez has until 4pm on Thursday to contest the charge against him for comments he believes were "rational".
