Wigan boss Steve Bruce believes Titus Bramble has been showing some of his best form in recent games.

Bruce said: "Titus has taken some stick over the years, particularly when he was playing for Newcastle.

"But he was spot on back there last weekend just as he was against Liverpool and at Portsmouth recently.

"He has been terrific of late and it was great to see him score that header.

"We deserved something from the game."
