Red card was wrong call - Martinez

Wigan boss Roberto Martinez believes the referee was wrong to send off striker Conor Sammon during his side's 5-0 defeat at Manchester United.

Sammon was sent off by Phil Dowd for catching United's Michael Carrick in the face with a flailing arm, a decision that ended any chance of a contest.

Martinez admits he feels sorry for the Wigan fans following the result, but praises his side's "character and determination" at Old Trafford.
