Wigan boss Roberto Martinez has revealed he has been in contact with referees chief Mike Riley following Saturday's controversial 3-3 draw with Blackburn at the DW Stadium.

Rovers' second goal came when Morten Gamst Pedersen appeared to dribble the ball straight from a corner before crossing for Junior Hoilett to score. Referee Andre Marriner, who allowed the effort to stand, is not taking charge of a match this weekend.

The incident left Martinez fuming, and he said: "I spoke with Mike Riley and he faced the situation."
