  • As for Wigan, they stay in the bottom three - they've lost ground on Southampton today and are now one point from safety.

  • There's the final whistle - Everton win 2-1 and it's another three points in their battle for a top-four spot. They are back into fourth for now.

  • Caldwell the latest to be booked. He went into Heitinga with a boot high. Luckily there didn't appear to be contact but it was dangerous. Fair decision.

  • Wigan bang it long via Figueroa but it''s overhit and the ball runs out for a goal kick.

  • McCarthy lashes a shot over the top from the edge of the box, right of centre. is that the last chance?

  • Beausejour crosses well from the left. It's nodded down for Di Santo who is adjudged to bring the ball under control with his arm. Correct decision.

  • Figueroa has a shot blocked on the edge of the box as Wigan push for the equaliser.

  • Jelavic joins Figueroa in the book.

  • Figueroa is booked for catching Naismith late. No difference in that challenge to some that went unpunished earlier.

  • Oviedo nicks the ball from Gomez to end Wigan's latest attack down the right.

  • A dangerous delivery from Baines is well dealt with by Wigan in their own six-yard box.

  • Naismith is stopped by a good challenge in the Wigan box. The ball goes out for a corner.

  • Worth mentioning there was a hint of handball about that Kone goal as the ball looped towards him.

  • Gomez tries a shot from outside the box. It deflects up off a defender and Howard is able to grab. This is going to be a nervy finish for the home side and their fans.

  • GOAL - KONE. Wigan back in it as Kone pokes home after Everton fail to deal with a a looping ball. Maloney's shot flew up into the air. Jagielka and Baines both failed to clear and Kone nudged it past Howard. Another game without a clean sheet for the Toffees who could now panic.

  • Jordi Gomez comes on for Wigan, replacing Stam. Wigan must attack now.

  • Everton should see it through from here but you never know!

  • GOAL - JAGIELKA. Neville swings in a good cross from the right and Jagielka, still up from the corner, nets with a fine header which goes in off the underside of the crossbar.

  • Naismith flicks a header down the line to Jelavic. He races down the right before trying to pick out Naismith. However, Boyce's excellent tackle denies the Scot.

  • Di Santo gets up for a header but sends it wide under pressure from a home defender. He wants a corner but isn't getting one.
