Wigan boss Martinez frustrated after Spurs draw

Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez felt thy were robbed of two points after their 2-2 draw with Tottenham.

They had to settle for a draw with Spurs at the DW Stadium after the ball bobbled off the unfortunate Emmerson Boyce into his own net in the 90th minute.

It had hit Boyce from a Tom Huddlestone free-kick that resulted from a coming-together between Spurs full-back Kyle Walker and his opposite number Jean Beausejour.

Martinez felt the match officials made an incorrect call over the incident, saying after the game: "If you see the replays, it puts extra salt in the wounds.

"It was not a free-kick - it should never have been a free-kick.

"Kyle Walker is pulling Jean Beausejour and he is too honest, staying on his feet.

"We need to accept that - sometimes when you are down there, the results or the lucky breaks don't go your way."
