Tottenham Hotspur and Wigan Athletic locked horns at the DW stadium on Saturday afternoon in a fairly tepid football match.

Niko Kranjcar continued his bench warming duties and Tottenham were also without their wing wizards in Gareth Bale and Aaron Lennon respectively. That said, Tottenham still had a line-up capable of defeating their relegation threatened opponents.

In the first half, Jermaine Jenas stang Ali Al Habsi’s hands with a stinging shot and well, that was about it.

In the second half, Wigan became the team which showed more hunger and desire.  Charles N'Zogbia went close after waltzing past the Tottenham back line with ease. Sebestian Bassong and his defensive colleague Michael Dawson both combined for a fantastic block on Hugo Rodallega moments later. In the dying minutes of the game, substitute Conor Sammon almost grabbed a winning goal, but his effort was thwarted by Tottenham goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes.

A point for Tottenham is par for the course considering their current form in the Premier League. Wigan on the other hand, will be more pleased with their point.
