  • Man City 0 Wigan 1. It's over and the Latics have done it! They have stunned City at Wembley and will lift the FA Cup for the first time in their history. What a day and what a moment for Wigan.

  • Final seconds at Wembley. Milner with a long throw. Dzeko touches on, but the ball won't break for Kompany. Espinoza hammers out of play. Martinez waving his arms around frantically on the sidelines.

  • Watson was left all alone to power home his header. Rodwell got nowhere near him at the near post. Joel is booked as he takes an age with a goal kick.

  • Watson almost in tears as he celebrates. Dzeko has been introduced for City in place of Barry. Last throw of the dice, and a desperate one now.

  • GOAL WIGAN - WATSON. They've done it! The underdogs are in front, Maloney whips the corner to the near post and Watson rises highest to glance past Hart.

  • Three minutes of stoppage-time to be played.

  • McManaman brought into play again. He breaks past Clichy, who is all over the place. He sticks out a toe, and McManaman goes down. Corner given. Big call.

  • Aguero offside again. He is doing City few favours at the moment. Wigan can keep on coming. They have to keep the Blues on the rack. Mancini's men playing for extra-time and a bit of a break.

  • Prayers from Wigan fans in the stands. It doesn't do them any good, as Watson fires a poor effort into the wall. Kone then collects in the box and finds Maloney, who sees Kompany put in another brave block.

  • City fans find their voice, with Blue Moon ringing out around Wembley. They need to stick together now, with 10 men looking to get the better of Wigan's 11. Maloney tripped this time 30 yards from goal by Barry. He goes into the book.

  • Maloney gets the ball up and over the wall. It starts to dip, but is always heading well wide and Hart can watch it past the post. City can't get anything going as Aguero is flagged offside.

  • Zabaleta makes his way down the tunnel. He had no complaints with the card, but isn't too happy with his team-mates for putting him a position where he had to make a sliding tackle. Free-kick to Wigan 30 yards from goal.

  • Clichy with yet another cross, which Boyce rises to clear. Wigan can counter. McManaman leads the charge and is caught by a flying lunge by Zabaleta. He is shown a second yellow card. Only the third man in history to see red in an FA Cup final.

  • Hart taking his time with a clearance, which he then plays into trouble. Toure had two Wigan players next to him as he collected a pass. Wigan then let themselves down as McArthur runs the ball out of play. Tired bodies and minds out there now.

  • McManaman involved again for Wigan. McCarthy fires over a low cross. Watson's first touch sees him rattle in a shot, which is blocked. City able to clear their lines.

  • Wigan playing out from the back, as they ready their first change. Watson introduced in place of Gomez. Martinez has held his subs back, possibly planning for extra-time.

  • Toure with a tired shot, but it flicks behind for a corner to City. Entering the stage of the game where a goal would likely settle matters. We don't get one here as Milner's delivery is plucked out of the air by Joel. Wigan drag themselves forward once more.

  • City finding plenty of space on their left now, through Clichy. He sends them right towards Milner. Rodwell then cross to the back post, but Clichy can't find Aguero with a downward header.

  • Boyce at Toure's back, not allowing him to turn. Aguero instead tees up Rodwell from 30 yards out. He sees a fierce drive blocked. Wigan refusing to buckle.

  • Patient play from City, but Wigan drag everyone back. Wigan supporters making the most noise at the moment. Clichy tries to provide a spark for City, but a poor cross is easily cleared.
