  • That's it, Wigan win thanks to two goals from Arouna Kone and one from Maynor Figueroa. They coasted home after Pogrebnyak's red card on 55 minutes. Thanks for looking in.

  • Wigan are comfortably winding down the clock, and as it stands will move out of the drop zone with Villa losing at Arsenal.

    90+1
  • McCleary fouls McArthur as three minutes are flashed up on the board - three too many probably for most Reading fans.

    89
  • This will be a real blow for Reading, who had found an improved vein for form of late.

    88
  • Wigan have a habit of climbing out of trouble late in the season, and this may kick start another great escape.

    87
  • The third goal gave Wigan breathing space, and the sending off of Pogrebnyak made it all too easy.

    85
  • Lots of blue seats can be seen as some home fans make for the exits.

    84
  • Alcaraz replaces Boyce.

    82
  • Kone goes for his hat trick, but his shot from 25 yards out, dead centre, shapes a long way wide of Federici's left post.

    80
  • Another good save from Federici, Gomez stabbing the ball from the edge of the box and the Reading keeper diving to his right to push it away.

    79
  • Some Reading fans are already drifting away with their side seemingly headed for defeat.

    77
  • Figueroa forces a good save from Federici, lashing a shot from 25 yards with his left foot that the Aussie palms away high to his right.

    76
  • Di Santo fires just over from a tight angle, and is then replaced by Jordi Gomez.

    75
  • Ali Al Habsi has not had a serious save to make yet, which tells a story in itself.

    74
  • With Villa drawing at Arsenal, Wigan will remain in the bottom three if it stays like this.

    73
  • Le Fondre has hardly seen the ball since coming on, and a cross towards the substitute is easily cut out.

    72
  • Wigan are looking very compsed, playing it out of defence and playing keep-ball.

    71
  • Garath McCleary replaces Karacan.

    70
  • The numerical advantage is really beginning to tell as Wigan repel a rare Reading attack.

    68
  • Reading just cannot get out of their half as Wigan keep their foot on the gas.
