Roberto Martinez rues Wigan's 'anxious' start

Wigan Athletic manager Roberto Martinez rues the "anxious" start that saw his side concede twice in the first half hour to set up Tottenham's 2-1 win.

Maynor Figueroa's third-minute error allowed Emmanuel Adebayor to create the opener for Rafael van der Vaart before Luka Modric's cross was headed home by Gareth Bale.

Mohamed Diame's 50th-minute goal signalled a Latics revival but Steve Gohouri's dismissal for a challenge on Bale surrendered that impetus.
