West Ham United 1 Wigan Athletic 1

West Ham Are Calling On Ashton To Advance by Simon Burnton
This was a three-minute thriller. It was as if, some time deep into the second half, the players had been informed of a contractual obligation to provide Match of the Day with a minimum amount of useable highlights and met the basic obligations... The Guardian

As West Ham's supporters grew restive at this static spectacle of a match, a steady chorus of "Deano" began to spread through their ranks.

The Telegraph
Wigan Defy Doubters At Upton Park by Andrew Warshaw
Chris Hutchings and his Wigan team may have been everyone's fall-guys when the season started a fortnight ago, but after narrowly avoiding relegation in May the Latics are challenging the assumption that they have little chance of survival this time round... Sunday Telegraph
