What a finale ...
Wigan Robin Park were 2-1 ahead in the last minute and seemingly through to the next round of the FA Cup. But they were given a harsh lesson in playing until the final whistle, when the home side scored two late goals, including a penalty that clinched the tie deep into injury time.
Ah, the magic of the FA Cup.
I'm glad I didn't leave early ;-)
