Mike Norman brings us all the In-Play odds matched from a dramatic FA Cup final at Wembley this evening...


Wigan Athletic - matched at a high of 220.0 in the FA Cup winner market - have won this season's FA Cup after beating Manchester City 1-0 in a dramatic conclusion to this evening's final.


With the scores locked at 0-0 the final looked to be heading towards extra-time, until Latics midfielder Ben Watson - on the field for just 10 minutes - popped up in the 90th minute to head home a Shaun Maloney corner and give the club their biggest success to date.


The only trophy Wigan had won previously during their short history was the Football League Trophy which they won twice in the 1980s.


The Premier League strugglers started today's final as huge underdogs, but during a goalless first half were easily the better side with Callum McManaman lighting up the Wembley pitch with some dazzling runs.


But it was perhaps City who had the best chance, a Carlos Tevez low shot brilliantly kept out by Latics keeper Joel Robles.


The Half Time 0-0 Score was matched at a high of 4.2.


It was much more even in the second half with both sides going for the goal that would probably lift the trophy. And with just over 10 minutes to go Man City's task was made a little more difficult when Pablo Zabaleta was dismissed for a second bookable offence. A Sending Off was backed at 10.0.


The Full Time Draw was trading at around 1.1 when Wigan won a corner in the 90th minute. City had everyone back, expecting to soak up the pressure and re-group before extra-time. But Maloney's cross was delivered to perfection and Watson's header was pinpoint accurate, finding the back of the City net to send the Wigan faithful delirious.


Watson was matched at a massive 150.0 to score the opening goal of the game, while a Wigan win was matched at 20.0 In-Play. The 1-0 Correct Score was matched at 36.0.


Wigan must now turn their attention to Premier League survival. Roberto Martinez's men are currently three points adrift of safety and available to back at 1.34 in the Relegation market.
