Wigan, Everton battle to 1-1 draw

Updated: February 04, 2012, 12:19

WIGAN, England(AP) Substitute Victor Anichebe scored late in the second half to earn a 1-1 draw for visiting Everton against Wigan in the Premier League on Saturday.

The home side took the lead in the 75th minute through an own goal by Phil Neville after a mixup with goalkeeper Tim Howard. But Everton, which came into the game on a high after its midweek victory over league leader Manchester City, hit back in the 82nd through Anichebe's powerful header.

Wigan remains in the relegation zone after a poor run of four points from its last nine matches left it last in the table with 16 points, five adrift of safety.

Little separated the sides in a dour opening half at the DW Stadium as the teams battled the cold and a poor pitch before the game came to life after the break.
