Wigan snatch last gasp winner

Published Add your comment

Jermain Defoe's return to Tottenham from Portsmouth began badly as Wigan's Maynor Figueroa snatched a late winner at Wigan at the JJB Stadium.

The England striker, watched by national team boss Fabio Capello, did not have a single shot on goal as Spurs struggled to match their hosts' energy and invention.

In a game short on chances the breakthrough finally came in the 91st minute when left-back Figueroa headed home Ryan Taylor's corner.
