Horror tackle overshadows Wigan win

- +

Wigan boosted their chances of escaping relegation from the Premier League yet again when they beat Newcastle 2-1 in controversial fashion on Sunday. 

Newcastle United's French defender Massadio Haidara is injured after a tackle by Wigan Athletic's English striker Callum McManaman during the English Premier League football match between Wigan Athletic and Newcastle United at The DW Stadium in Wigan, north-west England, on March 17, 2013. Haidara was stretchered off the pitch after the challenge that was unseen by referee Mark Halsey.

Goals by Jean Beausejour and a last minute strike from Arouna Kone -- his ninth of the season -- got them the three points but their victory was overshadowed by a dreadful foul on Massadio Haidara by Callum McManaman.
