Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez hailed Ali Al Habsi after defeat to Wolves.

Martinez claims he is not surprised by the form of the Omani international, labelling him an outstanding goalkeeper.

He said: “[His form] doesn’t surprise us. When you work with Ali day in day out you know his quality and he is an outstanding goalkeeper.

“Unfortunately he has been at the back of a 3-1 defeat and you feel that with his performance he didn’t deserve to be in a losing side.”
