Wigan Athletic 2-2 Stoke City – Premier League – 1st September 2012
The DW Stadium played host to an entertaining 2-2 draw on Saturday, with the home side going ahead twice only to be pegged back on both oaccasions.
Scottish attacker Shaun Maloney opened ths coring from the penalty spot after just five minutes, when Robert Huth handled the ball. However, Jonathan Walters equalised, again from the penalty spot, after Maynor Figueroa had handled the ball in the Wigan box.
Former Chelsea man Franco Di Santo put the Latcs in front again after the break, courtesy of a superb strike only for gangly hitman Pete Crouch to level the scores late on.
Ali Al-Habsi was forced into a superb late save from Sotke’s new-signing Charlie Adam but a draw was probably a fair result.
