Many thanks for joining me. Some of us said 2-2 at the start of the game. If that's not worth a follow at @danielstorey85, then nothing is!
Well well, Southampton put in so much effort to get level and then in front, only to lose that lead within three minutes.
2-2 Equaliser!!! Heartbreak for the Saints. Shaun Maloney sweeps home a Scharner knock down. What drama
What a team goal that is. Nothing more than Saints deserve for their display today. A fabulous run from Rodriguez and he finds Schneiderlin who ends a lung-busting run with a fine finish
Wigan have begun to look a little more certain in possession, but this is a game you feel they have to win if they want to avoid a relegation scrap
Chance for Wigan as the ball is played in, but Luke Shaw does brilliantly to get back and conceded a corner.
Puncheon strikes from the edge of the area after a Lambert pull back, but the first time shot cannot be controlled
Appeals for handball in the WIgan box as they are frantic and desperate to clear the ball, before Lambert volleys just wide. How long can Wigan cope?
Finally Wigan are beginning to settle on the ball and try to play. This is a big 20 minutes now for both sides
A shot from Davis is blocked but the rebound falls to Rodriguez who volleys at goal. Again the ball is blocked but Wigan are rocking here
Nothing more than Southampton deserve. A cross finds Lambert at the back post, and he is brave to head past Al-Habsi.
Brilliant feet from Rodriguez. It only wins a throw in, but he is really growing in confidence in the Premier League
What a chance for the Saints. Brilliant play from Lambert to find Rodriguez, but he fails to get a certain enough connection
Roberto martinez has switched to a flat back four to try and get a hold on this game. Even though they are winning, he can see the impending danger
A strange half. Southampton have been much better, although it has been a touch scrappy, but Wigan have the lead after Southampton failed to pick up men from a corner. Join me for more in fifteen minutes.
Wigan desperate for the half time whistle as Saints begin to ramp up the pressure. We will have two extra minutes
Ramirez has a dead leg after an aerial challenge with Espinoza. The Wigan midfielder has looked well up for the physical battle today
Maloney tries an effort from outside the area, but fails to get the bend he needs and it drifts wide
Southampton need a spell of pressure here to get themselves back into this game. Good invention and creativity but with no end product
The game has gone really scrappy as both sides struggle to hold on to the game, before Jason Puncheon drags it wide
Clearance from McCarthy strikes Schneiderlin, and the ball rebounds over Al-Habsi, who does well to claw it behind, just ten seconds after the restart
Wigan slightly at fault for trying to play their way from the back. With Southampton snapping at heels, they need to be careful
Southampton just seem a little busier in midfield, winning the second ball more often than not and playing the more fluid football
Huge chance for Ramirez. Cross from Lambert finds him in huge amount of space. Has time to take a touch, but hits it first time well over the bar.
Chance for Wigan. Di Santo gets into the game for the first time, and Boruc makes a fine diving stop.
Fair play to Southampton, they have taken a good contingent to Wigan today. That's quite a journey, and they've missed out on our sparkling live commentary. Real shame
Paul Scharner does get a good reception, however. He may be slightly kooky but he is much-loved round these parts
It would be pushing it to say that the DW is packed to the rafters. Some serious filling up needed in the next fifteen minutes
Alex Dawber also reckons we'll have goals, goals, goals: "I think we're in for goals galore, 3-2 Wigan and Lambert first goal."
Southampton: Boruc, Clyne, Yoshida, Hooiveld, Shaw, Puncheon, Schneiderlin, Cork, Ramírez, Rodriguez, Lambert Subs: K. Davis, S. Davis, Fox, Ward-Prowse, Lee, Lallana, Richardson
Wigan: Al Habsi, McCarthy, Caldwell, Di Santo, Maloney, McArthur, Espinoza, Beausejour, Stam, Figueroa, Scharner Subs: Robles, Jones, Henriquez, Gomez, McManaman, Golobart, Campabadal
Dance music pumping out around the DW at a volume I'd label as offensive. Still gets folks going I suppose
Alex Mavroidakis has been in touch: "Wigan 0 Saints 2 - heard it here first. The Saints are way better than their league position suggests"
This relegation scrap is pretty tight to call, with the Latics 6/5 and Saints 9/4 to earn a much-needed three points on the road. Soton have thrown away 22 points from leading positions this season, so look at them to bag first (11/10) but Wigan to come back and take at least a point (23/10).
Mauricio Pochettino is still looking for his first Saints win, but his side gained a great deal of plaudits for how they played against Manchester United in midweek. Still, no points for plaudits eh?
I would like you get in touch with me on Twitter @danielstorey85. Predictions, thoughts and follows, I feed off them all

Wigan have not won at home since November, or at all in the Premier League since December. It's a good day to start.
