Steve Bruce paid tribute to goal hero Titus Bramble as Wigan moved out of the relegation zone with a superb draw against Liverpool at Anfield.

The often-maligned centre-back scored his second goal in two games to give Wigan a brave 1-1 draw to heighten the pressure on Liverpool chief Rafael Benitez.

"Titus has had some unfair treatment over the last few years, people forget that he is still only a young lad and had been playing centre-half for a top side, so he has not been that bad," said Bruce.
