That's it. Sunderland win 3-2 at the DW Stadium. Wigan without a win at home since 24th November and that will have to chance very soon if they are going to survive.
One attack after another at the moment. Sunderland hanging on. Caldwell is joining in the attacks now for Wigan. Gomez eventually fires over.
The ball is played into the Sunderland box again and it's fantastic defending by Colback who heads it away from Henriquez who was hovering.
McArthur gets his legs in a tangle and can't deliver into the box. It was packed full of Wigan players.
Figueroa with a thunderous strike from 25 yards but it's just wide. The crowd are really singing now.
Maloney is the man who can make things happen for Wigan. He breaks into the box but is stopped by Bramble.
It's a debut goal for Wigan sub Henriquez. Maloney with a great little cross and the 18 year old heads in. 10 minutes left.
At the other end Fletcher sets Sessegnon up beautifully. He's one on one but wants far too much time and a combination of Al Habsi and the Wigan defence clear. Will Sunderland be made to play?
A rare touch of the ball for Di Santo in the box but he gives it away. He's had a poor afternoon so far.
Wigan want a handball but it's not given. Di Santo is convinced it's a penalty but the ref waves the players away.
Johnson weaves his way into the box and it takes 2 Wigan defenders to stop him. He's really enjoying himself out there today.
Wigan really trying to have a go. Space left at the back. McArthur goes down in the box but no penalty.
Great save by Mignolet. Maloney found space on the edge of the box but the Sunderland stopper was more than equal to it.
Sunderland looking to catch Wigan on the break. Vaughan this time can't quite release Fletcher though.
The sides are back out at the DW Stadium. Martin O'Neill will be looking for more of the same from his side. Can Roberto Martinez's Wigan grab the next goal and really make a game of it?
Do you think Wigan can pull this back? If so, why not head over to Sky Bet. They can offer you 6/1 for a 3-3 draw.
The corner was cleared but when Stam's cross falls to Figueroa to head at goal it's easily gathered by Mignolet.
Fletcher gets his second. He wins the intial ball into the box by flicking it onto Johnson. Johnson immediately sets him back up and Fletchers finish is emphatic.
Sunderland defending their 18 yard box well. Wigan pushing on more now. Stam a threat from the right.
Al Capone has been in touch via Twitter. He says: A first start for N'Diaye, will be interesting to see how he copes. I think they'll impress the 4,800 travelling fans, 4-1.
Wigan get corner number two. The ball falls nicely for Caldwell but he elects to pass rather than shoot and the danger is cleared.
More good play by Sunderland down the right between Sessegnon and Vaughan and when the ball breaks to Vaughan again he hooks his shot wide. Should have done better.
Figueroa with time but his delivery is rushed and Sunderland clear. Strangely for Martinez's side they are struggling to get into their passing stride.
Johnson continues to get the better of Stam. N'Diaye in the meantime has a cross shot which Wigan stab clear.
Di Santo has hardly had a kick thus far for Wigan. First corner of the game goes to Wigan though but O'Shea clears.
Good play down the left by Johnson and N'Diaye. N'Diaye with the cross and Fletcher forces the ball in. No more than Sunderland deserve.
Sessegnon plays a quick ball over the top but Johnson can't keep the ball in play. Sunderland fans will expect more from these two men.
Stam gives away another free kick. Larsson takes it again. O'Shea meets it and it creeps just wide. Good response from Sunderland.
Sunderland try to hit back with a free kick. Larsson whips in a great ball and the new boy N'Diaye has a great chance 6 yards out but it goes over. Big chance.
Superb work down the left by Beausejour who picks Stam out but his shot is deflected in via Vaughan. Messy but Wigan have the lead.
Wigan outside the bottom three on goal difference. Roberto Martinez's men could really do with a result today. They normally hit their stride at this stage of the season....
You can get involved on Twitter too. Send your thoughts on the game to me @OfficialTMCD1 and I will try and get a few on over the course of the 90 minutes.
If you fancy a flutter why not head over to our friends at Sky Bet. They have Wigan down to win at 23/20 the draw at 12/5 and a Sunderland win at 9/4.
It's a first Sunderland start for N'Diaye today as well so the travelling fans will hope to see a good performance from their side.
Sunderland have lost just one of their last six league matches against Wigan and there has not been a goalless draw in the last 16 games between the two sides in all competitions.
