Wigan manager Roberto Martinez was proud of the character his side showed at Stoke - but was ultimately disappointed they could only come away from the contest with a point.

The Latics scored two fine goals at the Britannia Stadium through James McArthur's clipped finish in the 50th minute and striker Franco Di Santo's volley in the 61st, although it only served as a fightback following Ryan Shawcross' opener for Stoke and Peter Crouch's 48th-minute strike.

Martinez said: "One counter-attack gave them a two-goal lead and I don't think there are many teams at the Britannia Stadium that would be able to come back from that. But from that point on, you look at the way we kept the ball and the way we kept showing that character."
