Premier League on Betfair: Swansea heap more relegation woe on Wigan

7May 2013

England - Premier League


Mike Norman brings us the In-Play odds matched from a crucial game at the DW Stadium this evening...


Swansea twice came from behind to beat Wigan 2-3 at the DW Stadium tonight, a result that leaves Roberto Martinez's men deep in relegation trouble.


Playing their game in hand, and knowing that a win would lift them out of the bottom three, Wigan took a late first half lead when Roger Espinoza - matched at 46.0 in the First Goalscorer market - fired the Latics in front.


Agonisingly for some layers, the Half Time 0-0 Score was matched at Betfair's minimum odds of 1.01 on the exchange.


Swansea were soon back on level terms early in the second half through an Angel Rangel volley but just a few minutes later Wigan were back in front, James McCarthy drilling home from just inside the box.


But Wigan failed to hang on to their precious lead a second time, Itay Shechter's looping shot bringing the Swans level once more.


And as Wigan went in search of the winner, some shambolic defending at the other end gave this season's League Cup victors the winning goal, Dwight Tiendalli stabbing home from close range.


A Swansea win was matched at 32.0 In-Play (small amounts matched at 46.0), while the 2-3 Correct Score hit a high of 190.0.


The result leaves Wigan three points adrift at the bottom of the table with just two games to go, and they are available to back at just 1.3 in the Relegation market.


Elsewhere this evening Manchester City virtually assured themselves of a second-place finish with a 1-0 victory over West Brom. City were matched at just 1.67 for the win, with match-winner Edin Dzeko being matched at 7.2 to score first.


To be Relegated

Wigan - 1.3

Norwich - 8.6

Newcastle - 13.0

Sunderland - 24.0
