Wigan manager Roberto Martinez is considering whether to appeal against his £10,000 fine for criticising a referee.

Martinez was this week found guilty of misconduct by the Football Association over comments which suggested Michael Oliver was biased after his side's 4-0 defeat at Manchester United last month.

On his punishment, Martinez said: "We have had the hearing and now we are waiting (to see) if we can appeal the decision because it is something I don't agree with. At the moment it is one of those situations you have to accept but we will look into the written outcome and see if we can appeal it."
