Everton's Leighton Baines lashed home an 88th minute penalty to deny his former club Wigan their first home win of the new Barclays Premier League season after an all-action 2-2 encounter at the DW Stadium.

Baines kept his nerve after Kevin Mirallas was pulled down by Maynor Figueroa in the box to claim a point for David Moyes' men, who had dominated much of the second half but until then failed to find a leveller.

Arouna Kone's 10th-minute opener for the home side was cancelled out almost instantly by a Nikica Jelavic header, but Franco Di Santo's 23rd-minute strike put the attack-minded Latics back in control.
