Stoke 2 Wigan 2. After an uneventful first-half, an excellent second-half performance from the Latics saw them fightback from two goals down to salvage a point at the Britannia.
Was that the chance to win it! Shaun Maloney corsses into the box, but Di Santo cannot quite reach at the far post.
Beausejour again wasteful. Had Gary Caldwell busting a gut to get onto the cross, but final ball lacking.
Joe Curtis on the email: 'What's the point in Tony Pulis having Michael Owen in his squad and not playing him. He is bound to get you a goal. And when Stoke have been drawing so many games, who else would you want on the pitch than Owen to grab you that winning goal?'
Wigan fan Jonathon Winstanley fancies a Wigan win via Twitter: 'Mighty latics to win 3-2 with free flowing football getting the better of HOOF ball.'
Cameron Jerome wastes a great chance to put the ball into the box, slicing over from a good position.
A very unpopular change by Tony Pulis. Steven N'Zonzi comes off, to be replaced by Andy Wilkinson. Chorus of boos around the ground.
McArthur again comes close. Allowed too much time from 18-yards, with Begovic forced into a smart save.
Thoroughly deserved equaliser. Playing some great stuff second-half, and the change of system has baffled Stoke.
Another excellent goal from the Latics. Espinoza whips the ball to the backpost for McArthur to knock down, and Franco Di Santo brilliantly lashes the ball home. Wigan are level!
Much better game in the second half. Both teams playing their football, with a great deal of quality.
Excellent throughball from Espinoza for the goal. Now looks full of confidence. One minute 53 seconds between goals.
Almost straight away, a lovely Wigan move is delightfully finished off by James McArthur with the outside of his foot.
On the counter, Charlie Adam is allowed to run from the half-way line, and fire a shot, that Al Habsi can only parry into the path of Peter Crouch, who tucks it away.
Jame has been in touch via email from New Zealand! He says: 'I had a feeling Shawcross would score today. Didn't realise he hadn't scored in over a year! Now wish I'd stuck a tenner on him!'
@CWalker87 has been in touch via Twitter: 'Shawcross is an absolute class centre half and loves to defend #warrior'.
Keep your thoughs coming in at half time. Can the Latics get back into this? Will the Stam change mean a different system in the second period? Tweet me @Pistolpeteh86 .
Stoke 1 Wigan 0. Ryan Shawcross' scrappy goal tells the tale of the first half. Lots of long balls into the box, but not much quality from either side.
Strange time to make a change. Emmerson Boyce comes off for Ronnie Stam. Why not wait until half-time?
Beausejour drives the ball across and McArtur, arriving late, pokes the ball just wide. Better from Wigan.
Charlie Adam cuts inside, shapes for the cross, but instead almost catches Al Al Habsi out in the Wigan goal.
Beausejour manages to head a Charlie Adam freekick onto the back of his own defenders head, and Ryan Shawcross hooks the loose ball into the net to give Stoke the lead.
Charlie Adam fires just wide after a patient Stoke move. Far too much space for him to get the shot off though.
@L3WKJ has been in touch via Twitter: 'Crouchy given a starting berth, probably to fend off any approach from Harry!'
Stoke fans James Hill has been in touch via email: 'Stoke really need a win tonight but Wigan are a bit of a bogey team for us so I would take a draw. Also very disappointed the Pulis's team selection tonight. Makes one think jones might be on his way out. Stoke 1 Wigan 1.'
Robert Huth remains on the deck after clashing heads with Franco Di Santo. Surprised he came off worse!
The Britannia has been a kind ground to Wigan (5/2) of late, with the Latics unbeaten in their last three visits to Stoke (11/10). Thus, the draw at 5/2 is the second most-backed match result behind a home win, while Jon Walters has plenty of money riding on him to open the scoring at 6/1. On paper, this is not expected to be a classic, with 0-0 available to back at 7/1, while under 1.5 goals could prove a shrewd bet at 7/4.
Darren Fairhurst, emailing from Spain, thinks Peter Crouch could win it for Stoke: 'Think Stokes Line Up Is Strong Tonight, Im Going For A 3-1 Win For Stoke, With Big Crouchie On The Score Sheet !! Come On You Potters.'
Martin Lally has also been in touch via Twitter, seeing ROman Golobart's debut as a key factor in tonight's result: 'Big night to give Golobart a full league debut got to be positive and hope for points come on Wigan!!!!'
Stoke fan Edd Irwin has emailed all the way from South Africa. He says: Tonight we must be strong and go for the kill and take all three points. Pulis has put out a strong side tonight and I'm going for a 2 nil win for Stoke.
Interesting to see Peter Crouch named in the starting XI, having been likned with a move to QPR this week.
Wigan: Al Habsi, Boyce, Figueroa, Golobart, Caldwell, McArthur, McCarthy, Espinoza, Maloney, Beausejour, Di Santo
Stoke: Begovic, Cameron, Shawcross, Huth, Whelan, Whitehead, Adam, Nzonzi, Etherington, Walters, Crouch
However, the omens look good for the Latics. They are unbeaten in their previous three visits to the Britannia, and have not lost in their last seven meetings with Stoke.
Roberto Martinez's Wigan side are on an awful run of form, with only two wins in their last 11 league games, dating back to the end of November.
Tony Pulis will be looking to take advantage of home home advantage as his side look for their first win in five Premier League outings.
