Despite going down 2-1 at the half Everton worked hard to salvage a draw. Wigan was strong in the first half and did well to earn themselves the 2 goal lead. Everton really turned it on in the second half and probably deserved more than the draw, but the penalty just a few minutes before the end was just enough to get them a point and keep them in 3rd place.
I was surprised to see Wigan up at halftime and still surprised by the draw. I really thought that Everton was in-form and would get the win. It is always difficult to get an away win at the DW and Wigan is one of those matches where you can slip up. The draw for Wigan against a tough Everton side was certainly something they should be encouraged by, but having gone from a winning position to a draw will be a bit deflating.
