    • - Don't forget you can watch highlights of this and every Premier League goal from 00:01 on Monday (UK time). Thanks for joining me!
    • 90' FULL TIME. Wigan have won 3-2.
    • 85' GOAL! Fletcher scores for Wolves! Lopez is closed down by Edwards and his shot is charged down by Al Habsi, but the ball falls to Fletcher, who taps into the empty net.
    • 79' A lovely move sees Maloney get to the byline but Berra scoops the ball over the bar as Crusat waited to pounce.
    • 75' GOAL! Boyce scores for Wigan! The ball drops to him on the edge of the box and he lashes it with the outside of his right foot into the top corner. Unstoppable.
    • 72' Another chance for Wigan. The Latics hit Wolves on the break and Di Santo rolls the ball into Crusat's path, but he fires i nto the side-netting from an angle.
    • 67' Chance for Wigan! Maloney lets fly but De Vries makes a smart save at his near post.
    • 65' Wigan seem happy to keep the ball and make Wolves chase it at the moment.
    • 61' Berra is shown yellow after he fouls Di Santo, who was clean through. Could have been worse for Berra.
    • 58' Beausejour's first-time effort from the edge of the box whistles just over.
    • 55' Still Wigan dominating but Wolves holding firm, and the visitors will be encouraged by this.
    • 51' Maloney inspiring a good spell for Wigan, who have forced multiple corners here.
    • 48' Chance for Wigan as Maloney plays in Beausejour, but Di Santo is unable to wrap his foot around the ball and fires wide from close range.
    • 46' SECOND HALF. We're underway again.
    • 45' HALF TIME. Wigan 2-1 Wolves at the break.
    • 40' Ward gets back to deny Moses, who looked to be clean through for a moment.
    • 38' Wolves are working hard but still struggling to create anything - and Wigan look comfortable.
    • 33' Caldwell releases Maloney down the wing with a wonderful pass, but the midfielder is unable to squeeze his cross in and Wolves have a goal kick.
    • 28' Wolves playing like they have something to prove but, in reality, they'll be happy to get to half time without conceding again.
    • 25' Big chance for Wigan to have made it 3-1 there.
    • 24' Golden chance for Wigan as Beasejour races clear down the wing and squares the ball towards the waiting Di Santo, but Stearman gets back to make a crucial interception.
    • 20' With Villa 2-0 down at Norwich, 15th place is looking good for Wigan. Wolves struggling to pose a danger to the home side at the moment.
    • 18' Stearman sees yellow for a very late tackle on Maloney.
    • 15' Wigan back on top here, really taking the game to the relegated side.
    • 12' GOAL! Boyce scores for Wigan! Beasejour delivers the cross and Boyce rises high to power his header in. What a start here! 2-1 to Wigan.
    • 11' GOAL! Di Santo scores for Wigan! McCarthy finds Di Santo, whose clean effort into the bottom corner levels the score. Wigan were behind for just a couple of minutes.
    • 9' Ironically, that goal came when Wigan's fans were applauding the eighth minute of the game - indicating Wigan's 8 years in the Premier League.
    • 8' GOAL! Jarvis scores for Wolves! The midfielder finds space on the edge of the box and curls the ball into the top corner. Great finish.
    • 5' Figueroa, Wigan's player of the year, catches Hunt on the edge of the box - but Wigan clear their lines at the free-kick.
    • 3' But Wolves clear their lines but Wigan applying the early pressure here.
    • 2' Wigan force a corner inside the first 20 seconds.
    • 1' KICK OFF.
    • 14.55 The teams are out for this final game of the season.
    • 14.50 Of course, the title can also be decided this afternoon, with Manchester City leading Manchester United on goal difference, while Bolton and QPR are battling to avoid filling the final relegation spot. There should be plenty of drama to keep us all excited, and you can follow all 10 games live here.
    • 14.40 WIGAN: Al Habsi, Lopez, Caldwell, Figueroa, Boyce, McCarthy, McArthur, Beausejour, Moses, Di Santo, Maloney. Subs: Pollitt, Crusat, Ben Watson, Gomez, Sammon, Rodallega, Diame /// WOLVES: De Vries, Zubar, Stearman, Berra, Ward, Jarvis, Henry, Edwards, Hunt, Ebanks-Blake, Doyle. Subs: Ikeme, Elokobi, Fletcher, Johnson, Milijas, Jonsson, Forde.
    • 14.35 The form guide doesn't make happy reading for Wolves though. Terry Connor's side have gone 13 league games without a win, although they have drawn three of their last four.
    • 14.30 Roberto Martinez's men have lost just one of their previous seven home games (against Swansea on 3 March).
    • 14.25 Roberto Martinez's side are certain to finish 15th if they win. That would be a fine end to a run that has seen the Latics beat Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal, as well as that crushing 4-0 win over Newcastle two weeks ago.
    • 14.15 There may be little riding on this match, but both sides will be looking to end their different seasons on a high. Wigan, already certain of survival, would make it three wins in a row with victory today.
    • - Welcome to our LIVE coverage of Wigan Athletic v Wolves. The match kicks off at 3pm, but we'll have all the latest team news and build up from 45 minutes before then.
