Wigan Athletic finally broke their duck against the big four of English football by taking a point off Liverpool at Anfield tonight.

Following a goalless first half Torres put the reds ahead after 48 mins and they hung onto their lead until Titus Bramble struck in the 80th minute to give the Latics a deserved equaliser

The point that Wigan take back down the East Lancs Road lifts them out of the bottom three courtesy of Sunderland who lost at Blackburn tonight

Bolton needed a last minute goal to beat Derby and remain just three points ahead of the Latics with the revenge game at the JJB on March 15th by which time I expect the Latics to be at least 6 points ahead of our neighbours from Horwich

That`s for the future, tonight is special in the history of Wigan Athletic we have finally come of age and hopefully we can now shake off the little Wigan tag
