First Half Highlights
Second Half Highlights
But Emmerson Boyce headed wide for Wigan and Hugo Rodallega struck the Liverpool crossbar late on as Rafael Benitez’s Reds slipped to third.
The result was rich reward for Wigan manager Steve Bruce’s willingness to chase the game after the break.
He brought on Koumas and Ecuador striker Hugo Rodallega – and saw his team score the goal that prevented the Latics slipping to a third straight Premier League defeat.
