Martinez bemoans small Wigan voice


Wigan boss Roberto Martinez insisted his side's "small voice" in the Barclays Premier League is counting against them after a controversial 3-3 draw with Blackburn.

The Latics looked to be heading for three priceless points after Albert Crusat's 88th minute strike before Ayegbeni Yakubu equalised with a penalty eight minutes into injury time, but Martinez preferred to focus on Blackburn's second goal on the hour, which dragged the visitors back level at 2-2 despite having David Dunn sent off.

Yakubu placed the ball for Morten Gamst Pedersen but did not appear to touch it before Pedersen dribbled towards the box and crossed for Junior Hoilett to bundle home. And Martinez said: "If I am going to be honest about it I am going to get into trouble and it is going to cost me a lot of money. But it seems too easy to get these decisions wrong. We are a small voice in the competition."
