Wigan Athletic midfielder Shaun Maloney was delighted with his late equaliser in their dramatic draw at QPR.

It was his fifth goal of the season and the 30-year-old Scot was pleased to have delivered after producing what he considered to be a sub-standard display at Loftus Road.

"It was needed because it was one of my poorer performances for the club, so I needed to do something to try and rescue the match. Fortunately the free-kick went in," he said.
