  • Thanks for joining me this evening, I hope you enjoyed the game.

  • So, Wigan remain three points behind Sunderland, Norwich and Newcastle with just two games to go. It isn't all over for them but there is no doubt that that was a huge opportunity to catch up. All credit to Swansea though who came out in the second half a much better team.

  • It's all over and Wigan are unable to take advantage of their game in hand on their rivals, despite taking the lead twice.

  • De Guzman is booked for a foul. Joel joins the attack for the free-kick and ends up delivering a cross but Kone's close range header is straight at Tremmel.

  • It has been all WIgan, but Swansea almost seal it as Dyer is found in the middle, but Joel closes him down well.

  • Kone holds off the challenge of Monk to have a go from outside the box, but Tremmel makes a comfortable enough save.

  • Maloney asks too much of Caldwell with the through ball, and Swansea have a goal kick which Tremmel will be in no rush to take.

  • Scharner meets Maloney's cross with a header, but it is more of a flick on which finds its way into the hands of Tremmel.

  • Williams fouls Kone to give Wigan a crossing opportunity with the free-kick on the left.

  • Possession has been with Wigan, but they are unable to create anything with it.

  • Gomez deservedly recieves a yellow card for a late challenge on Davies.

  • Nine minutes to be added. Will Wigan put them to good use? Stam is unlikely to be coming back on so they will have to do it with 10 men.

  • Some good build up play leads to Kone driving an effort at goal. He connects well but finds the wrong side of the right post. Wigan still with 10 men currently with Stam continuing to struggle on the sidelines.

  • Not long left now for Wigan to get themselves back into this, although there is bound to be a significant amount of stoppage time.

  • Back to the action and Swansea have a corner, which they play short before losing the ball due to a Routledge slip.

  • So, Tremmel on for Vorm and Wigan make a double chance with Stam and Gomez on for Watson and Boyce. Stam has suffered a knock almost instantly.

  • Vorm is applauded off, with the match put to one side for a moment in the hope he will be okay.

  • Davies should be okay to continue but Tremmel is readying himself to replace Vorm, who is seriously hurt.

  • Replays show it was quite a clash and there is a chance both may be forced off here.

  • Kevin Friend stops play as Vorm and Davies remain on the floor in pain after clashing with each other.
