2223: So that's all from me for one evening. I'm off to brush up on my understanding of the hanball rule in time for tomorrow night's FA Cup action. Chris Bevan is in the chair, we'll no doubt see you there. Over and out.

2222: Before we sign off, a reminder that Late Kick-Off, our regional Football League show, returns tonight and there are some cracking interviews to be had. Watch the king of cool himself Des Lynam take a tour of Brighton's new stadium, Crawley striker Matt Tubbs on his club's charge up the League Two table, and catch the return of Stan Collymore to the BBC. All depending where you live, obviously. Tune in on BBC One at 2305.

Full time
FULL-TIME Wigan 0-1 Manchester City
Alistair Magowan reports from DW Stadium: "City had the better chances but ultimately a Joe Hart toe's width prevented Wigan from drawing level. These are the margins and it sets Roberto Mancini's side up nicely for their next game against Tottenham. A hard-earned victory."

2220: All to do for Wigan still, but they've stayed up on the last day of the season twice before. Here's what Alistair Magowan made of it...

2216: Wigan manager Roberto Martinez: "The manner we finished the game pleases me. We had the worst first half of our season; we were cagey and poor on the ball. Second half you could feel that we would have a chance. I'm disappointed because City's best opportunities came from our errors and we have been done by a set-piece goal."

2211: No Simon (below), the lad in my team nonchalantly caught the ball. Placed it down for the fee-kick and casually jogged back into position. You had to admire his style really.

Twitter
Simon Baldwin on Twitter: "re 2156 wasn't me was it? Beaten by a ball over the top at junior level, I'm 6ft7 now, literally punched it away, only yellow."

2207: The handball debate is set to roll on then. I take the point that he would have had 50 yards to run. but for me Sergio Aguero in on goal constitutes a goalscoring chance. Nobody would have caught him. Apparently Richard Gough committed an even more blatant one for Scotland in the early 1990s. I'll have to research that.

Si in High Wycombe on text: "How can we get equality in decisions when the ref doesn't know the rules. Stonewall red card for handball."

Anonymous on text: "Why do people insist on calling for red cards when it isn't?! Do people not know the laws? Where does it say last man? Would the attacker have had a clear goalscoring chance in the next couple of seconds? No? No red card then. Correct decision."

2203: Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini: "It was very important to win tonight. When you are winning 1-0 it is normal to be nervous. I am very happy for Edin Dzeko, he deserved to score and I hope that he can continue in the next game. We have a lot of players out so it is not important to play very well, just to get the result."

2201: Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart: "It wasn't pretty. Fair play to Wigan who are in a false position for me. But we haven't been great on the road so it was an important win. I'm having very little to do in this team but sometimes you have to make a save and I was able to do that."

BBC Radio 5 live
BBC Radio 5live pundit Jason Roberts at DW Stadium: "Although Wigan made a game of it in the second half, Manchester City have defended like real men tonight. They've headed when they needed to, they've cleared the ball when they've needed to. City teams of the past might have drawn or lost this game."

2156: The main talking point may well be that incredible handball from Maynor Figueroa though. And for those of you asking, no it wasn't me who handled in a similar style at under-13 level. It was our massive centre-half who just caught the ball as it sailed over his head. He wasn't sent-off either. But he was massive.

2154: Not a classic performance from Manchester City then, but an important three points. Wigan were much improved after the break and were only denied an equaliser by that fine Joe Hart save.

2152: FULL-TIME Wigan 0-1 Manchester City

2151: City take Sergio Aguero off, I don't think he will quite believe that he didn't score from his Maradona-style run, or that he was denied by a handball 50 yards from goal. Crazy evening for the striker. City hanging on as Wigan ditch plan A and start pumping the ball forward now.

Twitter
MikeJWake on Twitter: "That is the most blatant handball ever! Incredible!"

2148: Roberto Mancini was back waving an imaginary card at the officials there. Noone likes to see that, but he has a point. Maynor Figueroa has to walk for that, surely? That's the most blatant handball I've seen in a long, long while.

Yellow card
2146: Incredible! This is like something out of a school game. Maynor Figueroa is the last man for Wigan, he misjudges a long ball forward and just bats the ball away with his hand. Sergio Aguero would have been in on goal - granted he was on the halfway line, but still. He is only booked. I've not seen anything like that since my days playing at left-back for an under-13s side.

2144: Into the last five minutes at Wigan. You feel a Wigan goal now could prove crucial in the title race. And Joleon Lescott has to be sharp to hack out a Victor Moses cross. City rather hanging on now.

2141: Big chance for Sergio Aguero to put this game to bed. James Milner flicks the ball through for the striker - who is just onside - but he rather nervously drags it across the face of goal. That would have been that.

2139: Edin Dzeko sees a speculative effort take a deflection and Ali Al Habsi tips it over. City are now lining up with five at the back. Not something I expected to see after 20 minutes of this match.

Yellow card
2137: Nigel de Jong flies into a tackle on Hugo Rodallega. Booked. In the current climate surrounding tackles like that that wasn't the smartest challenge in the world. Nedum Onuoha - remember him? - comes on for David Silva. Onuoha hasn't played for City for an age.

Text in your views on 81111 (UK)
Zoe in Birmingham via text: "I hate to say.it, even think it, but Wigan might get something, have we not learnt our lesson from Sunderland?"

2135: The arrival of Nigel de Jong has seen James Milner shifted out to the right, and he twice fails to beat the first man from good positions. He can carry a threat out there though.

LiamMorris94 on Twitter: "It may not have looked much, but what a save from Joe Hart with his feet."

2132: Nigel de Jong is on, with Samir Nasri making way. De Jong and Gareth Barry will form a shield in front of the back four for City, who are trying to see out another 15 minutes here. Can they grind out the sort of win championships are built on?

BBC Radio 5 Live
BBC Radio 5live pundit Jason Roberts at DW Stadium: "Wigan look in the ascendancy now. They're pushing forward, getting into pockets of space and being able to play their intricate passing style."
Twitter
saqrajan on Twitter: "Fan base = money = investment in players = epl survival = bigger fan base."

2130: Wigan have cracked it up a notch now, in a similar pattern to the first half. Roberto Mancini has sent for Nigel de Jong which tells you exactly how the game is going.

2127: Great chance for Wigan! James Milner makes a mistake in midfield and Hugo Rodallega is onto it in a flash. He plays in the overlapping James McCarthy, and his low shot is stopped by the feet of Joe Hart. Excellent save.

2125: Wigan get away with one there as Gary Caldwell handles as he defends a cross. His hand was up high and you have all seen them given. Wigan throw on Ben Watson and Franco Di Santo. Maybe hoping to force a penalty of their own?

2122: As if to silence our little chat earlier on, Stefan Savic defends really well against the pace of Victor Moses, shepherds him out of trouble and eventually wins the free-kick. He's been very solid so far. Everton boss David Moyes is in attendance tonight - with a hood up he looks like the emperor in Return of the Jedi. Menacing.

OxfordLatics on Twitter: "Hate people who slate Wigan's attendances because we earned a place in the Premier League, points win games, not fan base."

2120: That was almost it. Gael Clichy whips in a brilliant low cross which Sergio Aguero just misses out on, it flicks off Antolin Alcaraz and bobbles wide. Great delivery.

2119: There's half an hour left, and my only confident prediction is that there's another goal in this one. It's been really open since the break.

JBoffey on Twitter: "Dzeko's just earned himself a one way ticket off Aguero's Christmas card list."

2117: I feared we may be hearing the 'metatarsal' word for a moment as Samir Nasri feels the full force of Maynor Figueroa right on his foot, but the Frenchman is back up and running. Well, up and hobbling anyway.

Alistair Magowan at DW Stadium: "Wigan make a spirited start to the half but City have just had three golden chances with Ali Al Habsi making a fine double save to deny Edin Dzeko and David Silva and then somehow stopping Sergio Aguero when he looked destined to score. Livening up a cold night, this."


BBC Radio 5 live
BBC Radio 5 live pundit Jason Roberts at DW Stadium: " Everything about Wigan is different in the second half. Their body language, the way they are going for the ball and it looks like they believe they can get a goal now."

2113: Ridiculous from Sergio Aguero. He runs onto a through ball, cuts inside one defender, goes outside another, comes back inside a third, goes round the keeper but loses his balance and Edin Dzeko makes a mess of the shot at the end of it all. Incredible close control from the Argentine, it really was. All of a sudden the leaders look a real threat.

2112: City suddenly burst into life and come close to a second. Samir Nasri picks out Edin Dzeko at the far post, he takes a touch and curls one toward the top corner but Ali Al Habsi pulls off a great save to tip it away. David Silva is onto the rebound but the keeper saves that as well.

2110: Edin Dzeko hits the deck hard as he falls over the top of Antolin Alcaraz, the striker clutches his shoulder but is soon back up again. The leaders can ill afford any more injuries in attack. They may have to resort to brokering a peace deal with Carlos Tevez...

2108: Wigan are first to everything at the minute, three of them converge on Gareth Barry to strip him of possession and the move ends with James McArthur smashing wide from 20 yards. City haven't got going in this half at all.

2106: This is a very bright start from Wigan who are right at the races. They force a corner - and break the linesman's flag in the process. A bizarre stoppage as he reflags, and City get it clear.

2103: As if by magic, or more likely a half-time dressing down, Wigan launch the ball long straight from kick-off and Albert Crusat almost gets in behind the City defence. The home fans then want a penalty when Victor Moses smashes the ball against Pablo Zabaleta's arm but the defender had no chance of avoiding that one.

Whistle
2103: We are back under way in Wigan.

2059: You have to respect Wigan (and Swansea for that matter) for playing out from the back as they do, but at the end of the day you can only play a system which suits the players you have got. The policy cost Wigan against Sunderland the other week, and it could do again here.

Twitter
Will Corcoran on Twitter: "Ironic that it's trying to play football the right way that's going to send Wigan down. Sometimes hoofing is the right option!!"

2054: Wigan's defending for the goal was far from clever, but after watching the replay again it was a great finish from Edin Dzeko. He put it in the one place that Ali Al Habsi couldn't get to. Lethal stuff.

Twitter
jayblues8 on Twitter: "Play Nasri in the middle, you'll get a great Nasri. Play Nasri out wide wide, you'll get an average Nasri."

Don_Ready on Twitter: "Don't know why everyone is hating on Nasri he's got the second highest assist in the league just bellow Silva!!"

Half time
Wigan 0-1 Manchester City
Alistair Magowan's HT snapshot from DW Stadium:
"City on top without creating too much other than the goal and Wigan have grown stronger as the half has progressed. Wigan must be wary of committing too many men to attack, though, because City are breaking with fearsome speed."

BBC Radio 5 live
BBC Radio 5 live pundit Jason Roberts at DW Stadium: "Manchester City are not looking to get the second goal at the moment, they are just moving Wigan from side to side but if they wanted to put the game to bed, they could easily do so. Wigan can't play this badly for the whole 90 minutes, but they have players such as Victor Moses and Hugo Rodellega who can trouble City."
2047: Wigan did very well for the last 10 minutes of that first half - well enough to suggest that there is a route back for them yet. A second goal for City may be curtains though.

2047: HALF-TIME Wigan 0-1 Manchester City

2044: It's been all Wigan for the last few minutes, but City illustrate just how potent a threat they carry on the break - and should be 2-0 up. David Silva carries the ball 40 yards up the pitch before playing in Sergio Aguero on the right of the area, he cracks in a powerful shot but Ali Al Habsi stands up well to beat the ball away to safety. Very presentable chance.

Text in your views on 81111 (UK)
Anon via text: "Listening to the 5 live commentary for the game, I have to say Jason Roberts is joining Steve Claridge as my favourite summarisers … top stuff"

2040: Another patient attack from Wigan - started by a brilliant, if unintentional backheel from Albert Crusat - ends when Victor Moses tries to take on one man too many inside the area and Gareth Barry gets it away. Wigan are ending the half well here though.

Twitter
redgeneral76 on Twitter: "Wigan's crowd is embarrassing against a top team, surely there are footie fans in the area who would want to see Silva & Aguero."

2037: The anti-Nasri brigade are out in force tonight, and they do have a point. The former Arsenal man has failed to deliver the goods so far, but there is still time. He's been involved a lot so far with minimum impact. There's Mario Balotelli in the crowd, so he's not on his way to bail out Darlington, despite your tweets hoping for otherwise. Nothing is impossible with that man though...

Twitter
andymcnamara on Twitter: "Nasri has not impressed me since his big money move."

Official_JackO on Twitter: "Anyone remember when Nasri scored all those amazing goals.. Someone please tell me where that player has gone?!"

2033: Wigan haven't crumbled to their credit, but their style of play does them no favours at times. Twice City almost nick the ball off a Wigan defender while they play intricate passes on the edge of their own box. It may be the Englishman in me, but sometimes don't you have to go a bit long?

2031: Edin Dzeko gets clattered as he goes up for a cross but is soon back on his feet. Infostrada Sports tell me that City have won all eight league games in which the big Bosnian has scored. He's looking a menace at the minute.

Alistair Magowan at DW Stadium: "A fantastic leap from Edin Dzeko sends a packed City end into raptures. A crucial goal to break down a solid-looking Wigan and get City's title hopes back on track."

2028: Wigan release the pressure valve for a moment as they set Ronnie Stam free down the right, but the full-back produces a frankly rubbish cross which goes straight out of play. But there is a bit of quality as James McArthur curls a shot in from 20 yards which is well fielded by Joe Hart.

Twitter
EaglesForever on Twitter: "How does Alacaraz keep getting picked? He's at fault again there, stupid free kick to give away"

2026: Unsurprisingly, Manchester City have a spring in their step now. Samir Nasri is almost played in down the right but great tracking back from Albert Crusat snuffs the pass out. The travelling City fans - thousands of them - are in fine voice at the moment. Wigan need to hang on for the next 20 minutes.

BBC Radio 5 live
BBC Radio 5live pundit Jason Roberts at DW Stadium: "Every single time the ball has gone into the Wigan box, the attacking player has got to it first. The home side look at sixes and sevens at the back, but it's a fantastic ball in and a fantastic header. Ali Al-Habsi could do nothing about that."

Goooooooaaaaaaaaal
Manchester City goal: He may have gone 11 games without a goal, but Edin Dzeko ends his drought with a big goal. It's basic stuff though, David Silva whipping in a free-kick from the left wing and Dzeko getting up ahead of his marker to flick a header into the top corner.

2022: GOALFLASH Wigan 0-1 Manchester City (Edin Dzeko)


2019: A very high challenge as Pablo Zabaleta and James McCarthy go in for the ball, referee Martin Atkinson allows to play on before giving a bizarre hand signal. Looks like he gave a scrum to Wigan there. Right stadium - wrong sport Martin.

2016: City turning the screw now as they dominate possession. A Pablo Zabaleta cross almost reaches David Silva but Wigan get it away with a real Sunday football clearance. Directly across the pitch from left-back to out of play on the far side. Get rid - that's the stuff.

2014: Sergio Aguero is offside again. Wigan are pushing up which could be a risky tactic in the long run. I wouldn't fancy Gary Caldwell's chances of catching him up if he is onside...

Twitter
Arsenes_Eyes on Twitter: "Poor Mr Mancini. With all of #MCFC's injuries tonight he was almost forced to field a player without an international cap."

2012: There's the first real glimpse of David Silva as he fires in a shot from 25 yards. It's blocked and rolls through to Sergio Aguero, but he is denied by first the offside flag and then a marvellous stop from Ali Al Habsi.

Anon via text: "Headline tomorrow: Moses parts red and black sea!"

2010: Half a chance for City as Samir Nasri collects a short corner and whips in a cross which Stefan Savic heads over the top. Wigan then break with real purpose as Hugo Rodallega feeds Victor Moses who lashes wildly over the bar. End to end stuff.

BBC Radio 5 live
BBC Radio 5live pundit Jason Roberts at DW Stadium: "The way Manchester City are playing, Pablo Zabaleta is almost playing as a winger and James Milner is filling in. They would have liked Micah Richards to be doing that."

2007: This is 100mph stuff from both teams, let's hope they can keep this up. Samir Nasri is looking to drop deep to collect the ball, and it's about time he produced the goods to be honest.

2004: That was never a penalty for Wigan by the way. But that should be a goal - Gael Clichy crosses from the left and Edin Dzeko heads wide from eight yards out. Has to hit the target.

2003: Great stuff from Wigan! First they want a penalty as Jordi Gomez tumbles under the challenge of Gareth Barry, before the loose ball is fired wide by James McArthur. Close shave.

2001: City start on the front foot as you'd expect, before the canine-like Victor Moses breaks away with a strong run down the middle and is fouled. Looks like the home side are playing with a back four by the way.

Whistle
2000: And that is kick-off. City in their red and black strip.

1957: Joe, Joe, Joe (below). In much the same way that titles aren't decided in Monday - neither are degrees passed or failed. Plenty of time to claw your way to a 2:2 yet with a stunning last-gasp exam come June. The play-off route if you will - It's the only way to do it.

Joe in Leeds via text: "I am holding out for a Wigan win, it will give me the impetus to finish my dissertation by Thursday. If we lose the chances are I will fail my degree."

Twitter
LStakem on Twitter: "Wigan could actually rise to 16th If they win 9-0 tonight, just saying"

1955: The players are in the tunnel, they look all set to alleviate our Monday Blues. If you refresh the page now as well you will have access to our radio 5 live commentary in the top-right corner.

Text in your views on 81111 (UK)
Roddy via text: "A distinctly average looking city bench tonight."

1953: Of course, Stefan Savic is in action tonight thanks to the red card shown to City captain Vincent Kompany in the derby last weekend. I'm not going to open that tackle-shaped can of worms again - but I was half expecting a late bid for a centre-half from Roberto Mancini. On a similar note, City are really lacking striking options. Incredible given the amount of cash they have to spend.

1948: A man after my own heart J0hn (below). I am a big fan of Victor Moses after seeing him play in the Championship a lot for Crystal Palace. At times he was like a dog chasing a balloon, but when he got it right he was unplayable. A much more polished act now, he will certainly unsettle Savic. Or is this the night Savic looks the part? We'll find out in about 12 minutes.

Twitter
J0hnCooke on Twitter: "Can see Moses causing Savic some problems with his pace tonight "

Twitter
benapmoore on Twitter: "Huge chance for Edin Dzeko to stake his claim tonight!"

1944: Is anyone holding out much hope for a Wigan win tonight? They are up against it but one win and they would shoot up from dead last to 17th. If that doesn't motivate them - nothing will.

Twitter
Abu_Maniar on Twitter: "Great boost for City now that Silva is back. They missed his creativity vs Liverpool in midweek!"

BBC Radio 5 live
BBC Radio 5live pundit Jason Roberts at DW Stadium: "There is a lot of young talent on the Wigan bench, especially Callum McManaman who has really impressed me when I've seen him. He could come on and change the game for Wigan."

1938: Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini: "Micah Richards has a hamstring injury. It is not serious but we cannot take any risks at the moment. He should be fit to play Tottenham on Sunday. David Silva is an important player for us but if we want to win this game we play as a team. We were unlucky in the last game and tonight I hope we do better."

Wigan v Man City
WIGAN v MAN CITY TEAM NEWS
Alistair Magowan reports
from DW Stadium: "So City name an attacking line-up with David Silva and Samir Nasri replacing Adam Johnson and Nigel de Jong in midfield. James Milner should slot into the centre, with Edin Dzeko replacing the injured Mario Balotelli and Pablo Zabaleta getting a birthday outing instead of Micah Richards. Wigan return to their strongest side after defeat in the FA Cup. Hugo Rodallega will be supported by Victor Moses, with Roberto Martinez again opting for three centre-backs."

1929: With Mohamed Diame missing tonight on international duty, that Wigan midfield looks very open. Manchester City have gone for it with Edin Dzeko, Sergio Aguero and David Silva all starting. A big night for Stefan Savic as well, the defender has looked ropey at best whever I've seen him play so far. He could find the tricky duo of Victor Moses and Hugo Rodallega a real hassle.

Wigan v Man City
WIGAN v MAN CITY (2000)
Alistair Magowan reports
from DW Stadium: "There might be 19 places between them but Wigan boss Roberto Martinez is targeting three points against Manchester City. He said: 'We're still catching up to the points target I feel we should have by now, but in the last nine games we've shown a level of performance that we have to continue with.' City manager Roberto Mancini admits his side are struggling to cope without key players. 'When I said that January would be crucial, it was because I know football,' he said. Ah, wisdom, can't beat it."

Wigan v Man City
Wigan: Al Habsi, Alcaraz, Caldwell, Figueroa, Stam, McCarthy, Gomez, McArthur, Crusat, Rodallega, Moses. Subs: Pollitt, Gohouri, Watson, Di Santo, McManaman, Boyce, Sammon.
Man City: Hart, Zabaleta, Savic, Lescott, Clichy, Milner, Barry, Silva, Aguero, Nasri, Dzeko. Subs: Pantilimon, Johnson, Kolarov, Hargreaves, Onuoha, De Jong, Rekik.
Referee: Martin Atkinson (W Yorkshire)

1925: Wigan manager Roberto Martinez: "We will approach the game and be open, we have to create chances and we are in the period of the season where we need to pick up points. Manchester City are missing players but I don't see it as a problem. They are very adaptable."

Text in your views on 81111 (UK)
Daniel in Newcastle on text: "With Silva back, surely Man City should be looking to throw the gauntlet down to their neighbours? Three points and a lot of goals should do just that."

Wigan v Man City
WIGAN v MAN CITY (2000)
Alistair Magowan reports
from DW Stadium: "Lost key players to the African Cup of Nations, your last two games and haven't won away in the league since November? Then you need a trip to Wigan. Of course, the Premier League doesn't always work like that, and the Latics have recently held Chelsea and Liverpool at home. How much does a City win depend on the return of David Silva?"

1918: If there's one thing sure to cheer up any pessimistic City fans this evening, it's a Wigan backline which has shipped 41 goals in 20 league games so far. The Latics have been up against it all season, but they stayed up at the death last season and you wouldn't write them off just yet. Here's what our reporter at the game is expecting...

Twitter
Nathan Cooper on Twitter: "City only won two out of eight games at Wigan, Big game for City tonight with Silva back can only see one outcome. 3-0 City."

1913: I say City have had a slump, but let's not forget that they are still top of the shop. Only one win since Christmas Day though, and their prolific strikeforce appear to have hit the wall. Only five goals in the last five games in all competitions for City fans to cheer. Good job they're up against Wigan's defence tonight then...

Text in your views on 81111 (UK)
Philip, Man City fan, on text: "If we don't win today then we can say goodbye to any title hopes."

1910: So who is your money on this evening? This is a test of City's championship credentials if ever there was one. You would back Manchester United to go to Wigan on a Monday night and win 3-0, no matter what form they were in. Can City step up? Or can Wigan stay up? Tweet the commentary via the hashtag #BBCFootball, Tweet me @TJRostance or text in via 81111 (UK).

1908: It's hard to see which team needs the three points more tonight. Roberto Mancini's City have had their first slump of the season as Manchester United turn up the pressure, while Wigan are rock bottom. They're not cut adrift yet though, and will fancy their chances of springing a surprise at the DW.

BREAKING TEAM NEWS: David Silva is back for Manchester City, with Sergio Aguero supported by Edin Dzeko up front. Pablo Zabaleta replaces Micah Richards.

1905: Like a madman losing his senses on a runthrough of New Order's greatest hits, let's skip Blue Monday and concentrate on the football. It's top v bottom. Multi-millionaires v mere millionaires. A chance for City to move three points clear at the top, or a chance for Wigan to clamber off the bottom and right out of the drop zone altogether. Let's not mess about - this is a massive game. Potentially the most exciting Monday in Wigan since the opening of a fourth Greggs.

1900: Christmas seems a while ago. Summer is even further away. You're skint. It's freezing and Darlington are going out of business. Yep, it's 'Blue Monday' alright - statistically the most depressing day of the year. But wait - before you succumb to an evening alone consisting of a Pot Noodle and Eastenders, the football gods have sent us all to Wigan. Where the sun always shines and the beer flows like wine. Come aboard for Wigan v Manchester City...
