Wigan boss Roberto Martinez was delighted to see Wigan's luck change with a bizarre goal in their 1-1 draw with Everton, even if it did not lead to the three points his team so desperately needed.

The Latics began the match hoping to end a five-match losing run and it looked like they were on course for only a fourth victory of the season when, with 14 minutes remaining, Phil Neville deflected Jean Beausejour's cross towards the arms of Tim Howard only for the ball to spin off the turf and into the net. But Everton substitute Victor Anichebe headed in the equaliser seven minutes later.

Martinez has frequently bemoaned his side's misfortune this season, and he said: "It was a welcome surprise."
