Wigan boss Martinez: Al-Habsi as good as any keeper in country

Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez says Ali Al Habsi will recover from his howler on Saturday against Reading.

Wigan's Omani keeper faces Manchester City tonight after dropping his clanger in Saturday's 3-2 win over Reading.

But boss Martinez said: "I would not take any keeper in the Premier League to replace Ali - that's how much we rate him.

"The own goal will not affect his confidence at all."
