Let's Hope Wigan Dross Get Relegated!
Roberto Martinez was critical of the half-time melee which saw John Carver try to confront McManaman, something which continued in the tunnel and resulted in Barrow also being sent off.
Roberto Martinez: "I have not seen it but it is something which should never happen.
"It is not for anyone to take justice into their own hands.
"It was a day that we knew we needed to start showing a different type of character at home.
"Our home form hasn't been good enough in terms the points we have collected not because of the quality of our play.
"We had to show an incredible character to get the winner and probably we got a little bit of luck, which is probably what we deserved because over the course of the season we've not been a lucky side.
"The reverse fixture at St James' Park we had a couple of really difficult decisions (Figueroa was controversially sent off) to take so it was really pleasing to get three points so late in the game."
