As it happened

  1. 1949: 

    Wigan into the FA Cup final then. Arsenal into third in the Premier League. Everyone still in trouble at the bottom.

    Tomorrow we have a humdinger of a derby as Newcastle take on Sunderland, while Manchester United can move closer to the title and put Stoke closer to the bottom three.

    Join us again for more footballing drama. See you then.

  2. 1945: 
    MANAGER REACTION- Millwall 0-2 Wigan

    Wigan boss Roberto Martinez: "Shaun Maloney is an outstanding talent and when you see him he is one of those players you would pay to watch. But it was down to the others too and to keep a clean sheet against Millwall was an achievement."

  3. 1943: 
    Arsenal 3-1 Norwich

    Arsenal goalscorer Lukas Podolski: "Hi fans, what a team. Turning the result, making the Emirates crazy! Amazing."

  4. 1941: 
    MANAGER REACTION- Millwall 0-2 Wigan

    Wigan manager Roberto Martinez: "We will get our chairman leading the team out at Wembley. It will be a full circle for him and a great honour."

  5. 1942: 

    Wigan owner Dave Whelan is desperate to lead his side out at Wembley. We'll have to wait and see whether he is allowed to...

  6. 1938:

    Dave Whelan

    Wigan owner Dave Whelan: "It all depends on the FA about whether I can lead the team out in the final. I think they would agree that I could lead them out.

    "It is more than 50 years since I played in an FA Cup final and it is so wonderful. A cup final is a very, very special day.

    "It gives you awful memories leaving the cup final I played in an ambulance, but today has cured a lot of those memories.

    "It makes history for me, history for Wigan and history for football. It is really exciting for Wigan. The dream is we play Manchester City in the final and we win 1-0.

    "I cannot understand why supporters fight each other? Why fall out among themselves?"

  7. 1938:  
    BBC Radio 5 liveMANAGER REACTION- Millwall 0-2 Wigan
    Roberto Martinez

    Wigan manager Roberto Martinez: "It does not come any bigger than this. It is a huge achievement for everyone connected to the club.

    "The pressure was on the players but they were magnificent today. They lived the dream for Wigan.

    "I do not like to show emotion but it was a huge moment when Callum McManaman scored. There has been such an unfair campaign against Callum for an unfortunate incident when he was at the wrong place at the wrong time.

    "We showed a good know-how of how to win the game. The players deserve huge credit for that.

    "I did not see the violence but I have been told about it. It is a real shame, you should just come here and enjoy the occasion."

  8. 1935: 
    MANAGER REACTION- Millwall 0-2 Wigan

    Millwall manager Kenny Jackett on the violence in the south London club's section at Wembley: "It's the first I've heard about it. I didn't see or hear it at all and I've come straight here to this interview from the dressing room. I need all the facts and time to form an opinion."

  9. 1934: 

    We are still waiting to hear from Wigan boss Roberto Martinez. He'll be a very proud man I'm sure.

  10. 1934: 
    MANAGER REACTION- Millwall 0-2 Wigan

    Millwall manager Kenny Jackett: "I felt Wigan were very good. We had a 20-minute spell in the second half where we had them on the back foot, but we needed a goal and it didn't happen.

    "It has been a great achievement for a club the size of Millwall to reach Wembley. I'm proud of the players for getting so far. But now we have to concentrate on Championship survival - we have got six games left and need to win some sooner or later."

    Tim Wozencroft: "There has to be punitive action on Millwall after this debacle surely?"

    Aidan Williams: "Wigan are finally getting their reward, it's quite likely they'll be playing European football next year, good on them!"

  13. 1930:  
    Former Wigan striker Jason Roberts on 606Millwall 0-2 Wigan

    "Can you physically stop such behaviour? I do not know. But what you have to do is stamp down on perpetrators in the strongest possible way.

    "People will have watched it across the globe. This violence cannot creep back into the game."

  14. 1930: 

    Millwall manager Kenny Jackett says the important thing is that his side stay in the Championship, and says that he doesn't know anything about the fighting from his club's supporters.

  15. 1928: 
    PLAYER REACTION

    Wigan goalscorer Callum McManaman: "I'm made up. It's a dream come true to play and score at Wembley.

    "We expected Millwall to come at us, trying to get back into the game. But we got another goal and that was it. Once we broke them down it was our game and we controled it."

    Callum McManaman
  16. 1926: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Harry Fisher: "Millwall should be banned from cup competitions and have to play behind closed doors as punishment for this shocking behaviour."

  17. 1923: 

    Wigan have a tough-looking run-in, and they face Aston Villa on the last day of the season. That could be a huge, huge game.

  18. 1922: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Keval Shah: "Congratulations to Wigan. Fully deserved. Can't help but think that the next month of Premier League games is more important though."

  19. 1922: 
    PLAYER REACTION- Millwall 0-2 Wigan

    More from Wigan goalscorer Shaun Maloney: "We will probably be watching the other semi-final when we're in training tomorrow - we don't mind who we play. If we play like we did for the majority of today then we will have a chance."

  20. 1921:  
    Former Wigan striker Jason Roberts on 606Millwall 0-2 Wigan

    "What makes me sad is that it drags the good name of football down. It was a small pocket of people but it looked so bad for our game, which has done well to combat violence in the last 30 years."

  21. 1921: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Simon Atkins: "Millwall trying to lose this image, but a minority ruined it for the majority. Rest of their fans were brilliant, though."

  22. 1917: 

    Josh the party-pooper there bringing Wigan back to earth. Their focus now returns to the Premier League, where they find themselves in the relegation zone with seven games to go.

    Next up is a trip to Manchester City on Wednesday.

  23. 1916: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Josh in Plymouth via 81111: "So what have we learnt from today then? That Wigan can play well when they want to, and that they'll do excellently when they're relegated to the Championship."

    Wigan goalscorer Callum McManaman
  24. 1914: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Lew Daney: "Congratulations to Wigan, huge day for their club, but this game will be remembered for something else."

  25. 1913: 
    PLAYER REACTION- Millwall 0-2 Wigan
    Paul Scharner

    Wigan defender Paul Scharner: "It's unbelievable that we're in the final and the chairman [Dave Whelan] deserves it most. It doesn't matter who we face in the final - it's always tough in the final. Both teams, Chelsea and Manchester City, are very strong."

  26. 1913:  
    Match of the Day presenter Gary LinekerMillwall 0-2 Wigan

    "As for those morons we've just seen scrapping in the stands, no one likes you, we don't care!"

  27. 1911:  
    BBC Radio 5 livePLAYER REACTION- Millwall 0-2 Wigan
    Shaun Maloney

    Wigan goalscorer Shaun Maloney: "It is a great feeling, but it is one of relief, particularly with the way the second half went. It will sink in during the next few weeks.

    "I think it is unrealistic to sell every ticket we get as we come from a small town. The fans are a good bunch.

    "We have a big next month coming up in the Premier League now."

  28. 1911: 
    PLAYER REACTION- Millwall 0-2 Wigan

    Wigan skipper Emmerson Boyce: "It's an amazing feeling to reach the FA Cup final. It's a dream come true for the whole club. People give us a stick for the fans, but they were excellent. It's a magnificent achievement and we can't wait for the final."

  29. 1909: 

    Paul Scharner takes his boots off and throws them into the crowd. He's got a good arm on him too. What a return to Wigan for the on-loan defender. Manchester City or Chelsea await.

  30. 1908:  
    BBC Sport chief football writer Phil McNulty at WembleyMillwall 0-2 Wigan

    "Still pockets of Millwall supporters fighting with each other. Taking a very long time to bring under control."

  31. 1907: 
    Millwall 0-2 Wigan

    Wigan chairman Dave Whelan shakes hands with FA chairman David Bernstein. What a journey for Wigan under Whelan.

  32. 1907:  
    Former Wigan midfielder Kevin Kilbane at WembleyMillwall 0-2 Wigan

    "What happened in the stands took our attention away from what happened on the pitch.

    "The journey Wigan have gone on in the last 10 years has been tremendous. The whole of Wigan will be jumping for joy."

    WIGAN INTO THE FA CUP FINAL
  34. 1906: 
    FULL-TIME- Millwall 0-2 Wigan
    Wigan goalscorer Callum McManaman

    Wigan have done it. Two finely taken goals book their passage to the FA Cup final.

  35. 1904: 
    INJURY TIME- Millwall 0-2 Wigan

    Into three minutes of added time.

  36. 1903:  
    Former Wigan midfielder Kevin Kilbane at WembleyMillwall 0-2 Wigan

    "The fighting does seem to be spreading, and getting deeper and deeper into the crowd. It is disgraceful, and a few of the stewards near there seem to be taking a few hits as well."

    Listen to commentary of Millwall v Wigan on BBC Radio 5 live now.

  37. 1903:  
    BBC Sport chief football writer Phil McNulty at Wembley

    "Fighting has broken out among Millwall fans as this FA Cup semi-final reaches a very unhappy conclusion. Unsavoury scenes."

  38. 1902: 
    Millwall 0-2 Wigan

    Wigan are having a strong spell now as the clock ticks down. Unfortunately the focus has switched to events off the pitch.

  39. 1901:  
    Former Wigan midfielder Kevin Kilbane at WembleyMillwall 0-2 Wigan

    "There has been fighting going on in the Millwall end for the last 25-30 minutes."

    Listen to commentary of Millwall v Wigan on BBC Radio 5 live now.

  40. 1900: 
    GREAT SAVE!- Millwall 0-2 Wigan

    Arouna Kone wriggles into the penalty area and gets off a left-footed shot which David Forde kicks away. He's been excellent again today.

  41. 1858: 
    FINAL FIVE- Millwall 0-2 Wigan

    Into the last five minutes. Wigan will be back next month for the FA Cup final. If anyone can sort out some trains...

  42. 1857:  
    Former Wigan midfielder Kevin Kilbane at WembleyMillwall 0-2 Wigan

    "The priority for Wigan is staying in the Premier League because of the huge finances at stake. But, they have been excellent today, and if they play like this in the final they will give Manchester City or Chelsea a real game."

    Listen to commentary of Millwall v Wigan on BBC Radio 5 live now.

  43. 1855: 
    Millwall 0-2 Wigan

    There are seven minutes left now for Millwall to mount any sort of fightback. To their credit, they had a spell of real pressure and put Wigan under the microscope. Paul Scharner and co just about saw that threat off.

  44. 1855:  
    BBC Sport chief football writer Phil McNulty at WembleyMillwall 0-2 Wigan

    "Callum McManaman was vilified for his horror challenge on Newcastle's Massadio Haidara but he is a real talent. He has been one of Wigan's stand-out performers today and deserved his goal."

  45. 1854:  
    BBC Sport chief football writer Phil McNulty at WembleyMillwall 0-2 Wigan

    "Callum McManaman has been excellent today and he has just added Wigan's second after great work by Kone & Gomez's perfect pass."

  46. 1854:  
    Former Wigan midfielder Kevin Kilbane at WembleyMillwall 0-2 Wigan

    "It was excellent movement from Wigan. That was a lovely slotted ball to Callum McManaman from Jordi Gomez.

    "Shaun Maloney played a key role in the goal as he ran across the defence to open up space for Gomez to slot a beautifully weighted pass through."

    Listen to commentary of Millwall v Wigan on BBC Radio 5 live now.

  47. 1851: 
    GOAL- Millwall 0-2 Wigan - Callum McManaman (78 mins)

    A clinical blow for Wigan as Callum McManaman puts them 2-0 up. It's a really well-taken goal as well. Shaun Maloney carries the ball on a long run upfield before finding Jordi Gomez 30 yards from goal. Gomez puts his foot on it, waits a second or two and then finds McManaman with a delicious pass, the forward drifting inside to stay onside, skipping around David Forde and rolling home with his left foot.

  48. 1850: 
    Millwall 0-1 Wigan

    Good work from Millwall as they force another corner and again it causes danger, Sean St Ledger wins a header but it's well cleared.

  49. 1849: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Josh Simpkin: "Wise move from Martinez to bring on McArthur, the pressure is mounting and the legs are needed to press, come on you Latics!"

  50. 1847: 
    CLOSE!- Millwall 0-1 Wigan

    Wigan have been under the cosh but they fashion a good opening to put this one to bed. Callum McManaman is again the willing out-ball, beating his man with ease before picking out the late run of Jordi Gomez. Gomez works the ball on to his left foot and shoots low, but it's an acute angle and he can only disturb the side-netting.

  51. 1847: 
    Reading 0-0 Liverpool

    Liverpool striker Luis Suarez: "We did everything to win but the ball didn't want to get in. We have to keep trying till the end! YNWA."

  52. 1846:  
    Former Wigan midfielder Kevin Kilbane at WembleyMillwall 0-1 Wigan

    "There are some tired legs out there for both teams. Sean St Ledger looks very tired.

    "He is not used to playing a midfield role and he will struggle in the latter stages of the game to cope with the high intensity Millwall have played at in the second-half."

    Listen to commentary of Millwall v Wigan on BBC Radio 5 live now.

  53. 1845: 
    PENALTY APPEAL- Millwall 0-1 Wigan

    Millwall want a penalty as Andy Keogh's cross hits the arm of Paul Scharner, but the Austrian was about two yards away and had his arms by his side. Not a lot more he could do to avoid that.

  54. 1844: 
    Arsenal 3-1 Norwich

    Norwich winger Robert Snodgrass: "Only so much you can say on here, but who cares, that linesman has cost us massively today, decisions change games."

  55. 1842: 
    Millwall 0-1 Wigan

    Chalk and cheese stuff from both sides now as Wigan suddenly can't complete simple passes in the face of this wall of Millwall pressure. The Championship side have done what they needed to do and turned it into a scrap.

    There are 20 minutes left.

  56. 1842:  
    Former Wigan midfielder Kevin Kilbane at WembleyMillwall 0-1 Wigan

    "Millwall just look a bit more fired up now, they are finally putting Wigan under pressure."

    Listen to commentary of Millwall v Wigan on BBC Radio 5 live now.

  57. 1841:  
    BBC Sport chief football writer Phil McNulty at Wembley

    "Noise levels rising once more at the Millwall end. Kenny Jackett's side actually putting Wigan under pressure from set pieces. This FA Cup semi-final is still alive."

  58. 1841: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Felix Edwards: "If Roberto Martinez doesn't move to a Top 10 side this summer, there's something wrong."

    Will Moores: "Danny Shittu rose like a freakishly huge genetically mutated salmon there."

  59. 1839: 
    SUBSTITUTION- Millwall 0-1 Wigan

    Danny Shittu is causing some real havoc in the penalty area now. Wigan look panicked by his presence and struggle to clear their lines from several corners.

    Perhaps Kenny Jackett has decided that it's time to go big, as Rob Hulse comes on to join Andy Keogh up front.

  60. 1838: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Oliver Day: "It feels like Bradford v Swansea at Wembley today with Millwall losing out to a bigger team."

  61. 1838: 
    Arsenal 3-1 Norwich

    Norwich midfielder Bradley Johnson: "If the linesman can give a penalty from 40-yards away, how can he not see it was not a corner from five-yards!!!

    "Was it a corner? NO!! Was it a pen? NO!! Was it offside? Yes!! To say I'm gutted today is an understatement."

  62. 1836: 
    Millwall 0-1 Wigan

    This is better from Millwall! Alan Dunne provides some much-needed width on the right and fires in a low cross which almost reaches Andy Keogh but Paul Scharner hacks it clear. Another cross almost falls for Millwall but it deflects away.

    Danny Shittu then heads the corner over the top. They're having a belated go now.

  63. 1835: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Jamie Hardesty: "This game is simply an example of why semi-finals should not be played at Wembley. Like goal line technology, we all know this!"

  64. 1833: 
    SUBSTITUTION- Millwall 0-1 Wigan

    Wigan make their first change, and perhaps it is a sign of a change in shape as James McArthur comes on in place of winger Jean Beausejour.

  65. 1832: 
    CLOSE!- Millwall 0-1 Wigan

    You feel Milwall's best chance may come from a set-piece - and they win a free-kick in a dangerous area. James Henry lines it up and floats it over the wall - but over the bar as well.

  66. 1831:  
    Former Wigan midfielder Kevin Kilbane at WembleyMillwall 0-1 Wigan

    "Callum McManaman pops up all over the place, and that is similar for Arouna Kone and Shaun Maloney. Wigan's front-three have been excellent against Millwall."

    Listen to commentary of Millwall v Wigan on BBC Radio 5 live now.

  67. 1830: 
    CLOSE!- Millwall 0-1 Wigan

    Wigan win a free-kick on the edge of the box and Shaun Maloney delivers it into the mixer, but David Forde is able to come and make the punch easily enough. So far so good for the Premier League side.

  68. 1828: 
    Millwall 0-1 Wigan

    Andy Keogh is running his heart out for Millwall up front on his own, but after a lung-burster of a run he just runs out of steam and the ball runs away.

  69. 1827: 
    Millwall 0-1 Wigan

    It's been a very comfortable start for Wigan to this second half - as we hear of the attendance of 62,335.

    GET INVOLVED

    Darragh Moriarty: "Would Wigan fans rather relegation and the cup or neither? Could they get to another final? But would they get back to the Premier League?"

  71. 1825:  
    Former Wigan midfielder Kevin Kilbane at WembleyMillwall 0-1 Wigan

    "Callum McManaman has really good feet. He showed that ability there as he jinked inside and out, but he was unable to curl the ball in."

    Listen to commentary of Millwall v Wigan on BBC Radio 5 live now.

  72. 1823: 
    CLOSE!- Millwall 0-1 Wigan

    Callum McManaman has got a trick or two in his locker - he spins away from another challenge to get a shot off and he sends it on to the roof of the net.

  73. 1823: 
    Millwall 0-1 Wigan

    Wigan are quickly settling into their high-tempo brand of football after the break. They are dominating possession as Millwall defender Mark Beevers boots out for a corner.

  74. 1821: 
    Millwall 0-1 Wigan

    There are no changes for Millwall in personnel or system, and it could yet be a long afternoon for the Lions. They need to find a way to hurt Wigan here.

  75. 1821:  
    BBC Sport chief football writer Phil McNulty at WembleyMillwall 0-1 Wigan

    "All set for the start of the second half. Good news for Millwall is they're only one behind and still well in this FA Cup semi-final."

  76. 1818: 
    KICK-OFF- Millwall 0-1 Wigan

    We are back under way at Wembley. Can Millwall turn this around?

  77. 1814: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Gary from Newcastle via 81111: "Loving all the Ronglish in today's live text. Amazed no one's commented on it yet - guess there's not many in the wide awake club today..."

    Spotters' badge Gary. Great arrive on text.

  78. 1812: 

    Without going into the merits or reasons behind Wigan's failure to sell their allocation today, I was staggered to hear from Jason Taylor, a committee member of the Wigan Athletic Supporters' Club, who said many fans were unable to travel to London by train.

    The last service back to Wigan leaved the capital at 2030 BST, and fans would not have enough time to get to Euston Station from Wembley.

    This is 2013 right?

  79. 1807: 

    Rob Hulse, Nathan Tyson, Shaun Batt - Millwall do have attacking options available on the bench. Do they use them? And if so, when?

    Put it this way, if they don't make changes then their FA Cup journey will be over. Wigan are having this far too easy.

  80. 1807: 
    FOOTBALL LEAGUE ROUND-UP

    League Two leaders Gillingham are already assured of promotion - but Martin Allen's men will have to wait until next weekend at least to seal the title. Their 1-0 defeat at play-off contenders Cheltenham means second-placed Port Vale, who drew 2-2 at Rochdale, can still overhaul them on goal difference.

    The key relegation battle between Torquay and Barnet was rained off, allowing York to leapfrog the pair with a 2-0 success at sixth-placed Northampton. The Cobblers are looking nervously over their shoulders after three straight defeats, with Bradford up to seventh on the back on a six-match unbeaten streak.

  81. 1805:  
    Former Wigan midfielder Kevin Kilbane at WembleyMillwall 0-1 Wigan

    "If Liam Trotter comes on for Millwall he will provide support for Andy Keogh, who has been very isolated up top."

    Listen to commentary of Millwall v Wigan on BBC Radio 5 live now.

  82. 1803:  
    BBC Sport chief football writer Phil McNulty at WembleyHALF-TIME- Millwall 0-1 Wigan

    "Satisfactory first 45 minutes for Wigan. Millwall struggling to lay a glove on the Premier League side at the moment but they still have plenty of time to pull this FA Cup semi-final around."

    Wigan v Millwall
  83. 1803: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Paul Baker: "Wigan playing like Barcelona. 70+% possession."

  84. 1802: 
    HALF-TIME- Millwall 0-1 Wigan
  85. 1801:  
    BBC Sport chief football writer Phil McNulty at WembleyMillwall 0-1 Wigan

    "Wigan looking the more likely. Millwall struggling to gain a foothold."

  86. 1800: 
    FOOTBALL LEAGUE ROUND-UP

    Billy Paynter's quickfire double moved League One leaders Doncaster within touching distance of an instant return to the Championship after a 2-1 comeback win at Crewe. A home victory against Notts County next Saturday will do the trick for Brian Flynn's men. Second-placed Bournemouth clinched their play-off spot with a 3-0 success at Shrewsbury.

    But it was a miserable day for cash-strapped Bury, who were relegated from the third tier with a 1-0 home defeat by Oldham. The Latics, who saw hundreds of their fans locked out of the Greater Manchester derby, eased their own relegation fears in the process. Second-bottom Hartlepool gave themselves the slimmest hope of survival with a precious 1-0 win at play-off hopefuls Tranmere.

  87. 1800: 
    GREAT SAVE!- Millwall 0-1 Wigan
    Arouna Kone

    At the risk of repeating myself, Arouna Kone causes Millwall more damage with a strong run and intelligent link-up play, beating his man down the left this time before squaring the ball, Jordi Gomez arrives on it and picks his spot - but David Forde dives to his left and claws out his shot.

  88. 1758:  
    Former Wigan midfielder Kevin Kilbane at WembleyMillwall 0-1 Wigan

    "Callum McManaman looks so sharp for Wigan. He can jink left or right, and he links up so well with Shaun Maloney."

  89. 1758: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Lokesh Sankar Rath: "This game for Wigan will work as a morale booster for them in the pressured relegation battle in the Premier League."

  90. 1756: 
    Millwall 0-1 Wigan

    Brilliant from Arouna Kone again, he is so elusive in and around the Millwall penalty area. When they get the ball in to his feet he is unstoppable.

    This time the striker is able to hold off his marker and turn into the penalty area before picking out Callum McManaman on the edge of the box, but the forward curls his shot wide of the corner.

  91. 1755:  
    BBC Sport chief football writer Phil McNulty at Wembley

    "Millwall looking for a swift response but Wigan's width and pace is causing problems for the Championship side."

    Shaun Maloney
  92. 1751: 
    Millwall 0-1 Wigan

    Those Millwall fans are cheering again now. The Championship side exert some pressure after a few well-won challenges in the midfield, the ball is then worked out to Chris Taylor on the right and he beats his man to deliver an excellent cross which Emmerson Boyce just about clears.

    Last 10 minutes of the first half.

  93. 1749:  
    Former Wigan midfielder Kevin Kilbane at WembleyMillwall 0-1 Wigan

    "These conditions suit Wigan. This slick pitch helps their passing, and with their one and two-touch play they are well on top against Millwall."

    Listen to commentary of Millwall v Wigan on BBC Radio 5 live now.

  94. 1749: 
    Millwall 0-1 Wigan

    Wigan always seem to have an extra man thanks to their flexible 3-4-3 system, and they release Jean Beausejour over the top. For a moment it looks like the winger is going to latch on to the pass but David Forde is alert to the danger and sweeps up well. We are in to the last 15 minutes of a first half which the Premier League side have navigated with ease so far.They've even quietened the Millwall fans momentarily.

  95. 1745: 
    GET INVOLVED

    Michael Robertson: "Wigan playing very patiently at the moment, similar to last week v QPR."

    Kwong Tse: "Wigan have the lead, great cross from Kone and a cracking finish from Maloney. Wigan deserve their lead against Millwall."

  96. 1745: 
    Millwall 0-1 Wigan

    "1-0 to the empty seats" is the chant from the Millwall end, but it's nearly two as Paul Scharner hooks in an effort from a corner which David Forde has to save.

    As Everton found to their cost Wigan are capable of really taking a game away from you if they are in the mood.

    MANAGER REACTION- Arsenal 3-1 Norwich

    Norwich manager Chris Hughton on his team's hopes of avoiding relegation: "We've said you have to look around the 40 point mark and there are teams around us capable of winning games. We have to look after our own business and get the points that we need."

  98. 1743:  
    BBC Sport chief football writer Phil McNulty at WembleyMillwall 0-1 Wigan

    "Wigan have shown that extra touch of quality so far and Maloney's goal demonstrates it. No let up in the noise from Millwall's fans though."

    Former Wigan midfielder Kevin Kilbane at WembleyMillwall 0-1 Wigan

    "It was a wonderful run from Shaun Maloney to pull off the Millwall defenders. Great goal.

    "Right now, Millwall will maintain what they are doing to try and stay in the game by sitting deep. It will be hard for them as Wigan have been outstanding in possession."

  100. 1742: 
    MANAGER REACTION- Arsenal 3-1 Norwich

    Norwich manager Chris Hughton: "Losing in that manner is frustrating. For 85 minutes you have to accept the balance of possession is going to be Arsenal's. But we battled well, broke when we could, took the lead and made it difficult for them.

    "If it's a bit of quality that opens you up, then you hold your hands up. But a decision has gone against us that a linesman has given from 45 to 50 yards away and the referee is less than 10 yards away.

    "For a linesman to give it from that distance, and the third goal was offside with him 10 yards away, it's almost criminal on a day that we deserved so much more."

  101. 1740: 
    GOAL- Millwall 0-1 Wigan - Shaun Maloney (25 mins)

    Absolutely top-class from Arouna Kone! What an assist this is. Kone drops deep to take the ball on his chest, spins, beats three men for pace and strength before getting his head up and picking out the run of Shaun Maloney with a spotters' badge of a pass.

    Maloney is onside and cushions his side-footed volley past David Forde and into the net. A gem of a goal.

  102. 1737: 
    YELLOW CARD- Millwall 0-0 Wigan

    Have some of that!

    Callum McManaman looks to sprint away from the Millwall midfield and gets his head up, just in time to see Sean St Ledger cynically chop him down. Booking for the Republic of Ireland man, and quite rightly so.

    We are midway through the first half now, with Millwall struggling to prevent Wigan from keeping the ball.

  103. 1735: 
    Millwall 0-0 Wigan

    Wigan dictating the play now, with James McCarthy dropping deep to conduct at will. McCarthy has been linked with a move to Manchester United in some of the newspapers.

    I'm not sure he's quite that good, but he has come on a lot and is enjoying the wide open spaces of Wembley.

  104. 1736: 
    MANAGER REACTION- Everton 2-0 QPR

    QPR boss Harry Redknapp on his side's chances of survival: "I can't stand there and go no [we can't do it], if it's a no I may as well go on holiday now. We have to believe.

    "We have to beat Stoke, we have to beat Reading, then Newcastle and Arsenal. I know it's tough but while you've got a chance you have to keep going."

  105. 1735: 
    MANAGER REACTION- Everton 2-0 QPR

    QPR boss Harry Redknapp: "It is another blow. Goodison is always a difficult place to come but at half time I thought we were unfortunate to be 1-0 down. The goal was a massive deflection and we came in at half-time feeling sorry for ourselves.

    "You have to keep going. We can't suddenly feel sorry for ourselves - but we started sloppy and became undisciplined, got yellow cards and started kicking the ball away. We didn't do ourselves any favours."

    "It's a shame we conceded so quickly but it was an unfortunate moment in the game and these things happen in football. I'm content, especially considering the virus we had in the squad this week, but unhappy that we didn't get the three points we deserved."

    GREAT SAVE!- Millwall 0-0 Wigan

    Wigan are settling into an ominous rhythm now, and David Forde has to be alert again to repel a stinging drive from Callum McManaman, who pings in a crisp shot from 25 yards. Fine save!

  112. 1731: 
    MANAGER REACTION- Reading 0-0 Liverpool

    Reading manager Nigel Adkins: "It was a good performance all around. In the three games I have been in charge, the attitude and application has been top drawer. It was an outstanding goalkeeping performance from Alex McCarthy. He has worked really hard to make sure we pick up a point today.

    "The first 15 minutes they had good possession - they play football the right way. But our players have kept us in the game and we have had a great opportunity with Noel Hunt late on and Pepe Reina has made a great save. It is only a one point, when we need three - we know where we are."

  113. 1729: 
    GREAT SAVE!- Millwall 0-0 Wigan

    Chance here though. Chris Taylor gives the ball away cheaply 40 yards from goal, Shaun Maloney picks out the right pass to free Arouna Kone, who has way too much pace for Danny Shittu, but Mark Beevers just about keeps up and a combination of Beevers and keeper David Forde get the ball behind for a corner.

    Forde took a boot to the face there but shrugs it off.

  114. 1728: 
    MANAGER REACTION- Reading 0-0 Liverpool

    Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers: "We created enough chances to win a couple of games. We are very disappointed we didn't win.

    "Their goalkeeper was outstanding and on another day the goals go in. It was as good a goalkeeping performance as I have seen in a long time.

    "I can't ask anything more of the players except that we should have been a wee bit more clinical. Our creativity and movement was very good. But we just didn't do final bit - that is to put the ball in the net - and that cost us."

  115. 1727: 

    Cardiff striker Fraizer Campbell: "Oi oiiiiiiii! Only one more point!! Can't wait for Tuesday!"

  116. 1726: 
    Millwall 0-0 Wigan

    Wigan force a few corners but Danny Shittu and co are able to clear their lines very comfortably, the Lions then counter at pace with James Henry freeing Chris Taylor over the top but the former Oldham man's shot is way wide of the target.

    The first 10 minutes have flown by. Plenty of passing and moving but no real danger yet.

  117. 1726: 
    MANAGER REACTION- Arsenal 3-1 Norwich

    Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger: "I thought we wouldn't give in and fight until the end. No-one could predict we would score three goals but we have great attitude, spirit and desire - and it got us there. We deserved to win but we were against a strong side and needed something special."

    On climbing into the top four: "For me what is more important is to keep the run, attitude and focus strong. We want consistency and that demands huge focus because you can see how quickly you're punished. We're not far away but we just have to keep winning."

    Millwall 0-0 Wigan

    Millwall skipper Danny Shittu lines up an outlandish shot from nearly 40 yards but it is never close to threatening the Wigan goal. You would not want to be in the section of Wembley seats that that one landed in though. Big man, big strike.

  121. 1722: 
    Millwall 0-0 Wigan

    The Championship side have made a decent start and win a free-kick in a dangerous area. Time to wheel giant Danny Shittu up there but Antolin Alcaraz makes a towering header.

    Fulham boss Martin Jol: "I thought they were the better team. In the first half, we were a bit hot and cold. The chances they had were created by us.

    "If you look at the match, they had won three of four coming into the game, so I can live with a point. Our first priority was 40 points and we have achieved that."

  124. 1719: 
    MANAGER REACTION- Aston Villa 1-1 Fulham

    Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert: "I thought we were great. We should have been a few goals up at half-time and their goalkeeper made some vital saves. I could not fault the lads for effort. [In terms of Fabian Delph's own goal] you can never fault anyone for trying to do the right things.

    "The point keeps the momentum there. I played under a great manager once and he said if you can't win a game then don't lose it. I think you can sense in the stadium the fans are behind us."

    Jordi Gomez then has sight of goal at the other end as Wigan pass slickly downfield, but his low shot is well charged down by Mark Beevers.

  126. 1716:

    Dave Whelan does not lead out Wigan, instead it's Emmerson Boyce and Danny Shittu who head the line-ups as the teams enter the playing surface.

    Millwall are backed by about 10,000 more fans today. Will that play any part?

  135. 1712: 
    MANAGER REACTION- Everton 2-0 QPR

    Everton boss David Moyes: "It's a really important three points, because I was worried about today's game. QPR have a lot to play for and they are almost getting to a situation where they don't have much to play for.

    "We played well at times, the pitch is very poor at the minute and that is not helping us but we got the goals that mattered. I think if we beat Arsenal in midweek we can talk about the Champions League but if lose we are talking about a Europa League place."

  136. 1710: 
    MANAGER REACTION- Southampton 1-1 West Ham

    West Ham manager Sam Allardyce: "In the end I thought we were more than comfortable. Away goals have been our problem all season and we again created some simple chances which we didn't convert.

    "There are six games left, we have 38 points and are in a nice position in the league. We have four games at home, two away, and our home form has been good this season. We should finish strongly, see how many points we can pick up and see where we can finish. I can't see us losing six on the trot with the way the lads are playing."

    Who predicted one of these teams would be playing in Europe next season? No? Me neither. But that is exactly the prize at stake - unless their final opponents, both currently in the Premier League top four, somehow fail to qualify through the top-flight.

    Championship leaders Cardiff need just a point to clinch Premier League promotion after their 3-0 demolition of Nottingham Forest. That's because third-placed Watford surprisingly lost by the same scoreline at Peterborough. Hull won 2-1 at Ipswich to clinch their play-off berth.

    Peterborough's emphatic win moves them out of the bottom three, while Blackburn followed suit with a 2-0 success over Derby. Huddersfield eased their worries with a vital 3-1 win at Wolves, who slip to second bottom.

If those results stay the same then the Welsh club would need one more point to seal an automatic spot.

    Peterborough's lead means they are currently on track to climb out of the bottom three, as are Blackburn who are still beating Derby. Wolves and Barnsley, both losing at home, look set to drop into the relegation zone instead.

    Dear oh dear, what a bad afternoon Fabian Delph is having. Not content with scoring an own goal, the Villa midfielder shanks a horrible shot over the top from close range after more enterprising play from Andreas Weimann sees the Austrian pick him out with a low cross.

  181. 1630: 
    Arsenal 0-1 Norwich

    Arsenal almost get caught on the counter attack but Robert Snodgrass's shot is saved. Really poor showing from the hosts so far as we enter the last 20 minutes.

    Former Leeds manager Neil Warnock

    "The first-halves in all the games were very cautious but all the teams have really given it a go after the break. I am expecting several more goals in the last 20 minutes."

    West Ham are back on level terms within seven minutes of Southampton's opener at St Mary's. Hammers striker Andy Carroll lashes in a low 20-yard free-kick which flies past Artur Boruc with the aid of a deflection off Saints player Steven Davis.

  188. 1622: 
    GOAL- Aston Villa 1-1 Fulham - Fabian Delph OG (66 mins)

    Disaster for Fabian Delph. The Aston Villa man rises from his station a few yards ahead of the near post, with no Fulham attacker anywhere near him, and flicks Bryan Ruiz's corner into the net with a little 'eyebrows' of a header.

  189. 1621:

    Liverpool arguably look the most likely of anyone to score at the moment and they go close again. Daniel Sturridge runs at the defence again, and when his cross is blocked Philippe Coutinho scoops the loose ball over the top from close range.

    Reading haven't a clue how to deal with Coutinho.

First, Daniel Sturridge is played through by Luis Suarez, he stays on his feet well to evade a tackle and gets a shot in which Alex McCarthy gets a strong hand to. Philippe Coutinho then fires in a shot on the rebound but McCarthy gets down to his left to turn it away.

    Jamie Carragher then heads an effort wide from the corner. A goal is coming you feel.

    Ben Ackland: "With Gervinho firing and Jack Wilshere back I fancy Arsenal to blow the Canaries out of the sky."

    Tris Earl: "The most concerning thing about the virus at Southampton today is that Danny Fox is in the starting 11."

    Oli Archer: "I wonder if England cricketer Ian Bell can inspire Villa to bat-to-bat wins today? I can see Christian Benteke bowling Fulham over."

    Reading v Liverpool (1500 BST)

    That minute's silence was immaculate. Perfectly observed. Silence also observed at Goodison Park.

  285. 1456: 
    Reading v Liverpool (1500 BST)

    Reading owner Anton Zingarevich and Liverpool MD Ian Ayre lay a floral tribute to the 96 who died at Hillsborough on the centre circle before a minute's silence.

  286. 1454: 

    Here we go then. Players emerge from tunnels around the country as we get set for a crunch afternoon of fixtures.

    KIT CLASH
    Matt Le Tissier

    It is 17 years to the day since one of the Premier League's more bizarre moments. Manchester United were beaten 3-1 at Southampton as they chased down Newcastle to win the league, but the game is most memorable for the fact that United changed kits at half-time.

    The grey effort they wore in the first half apparently made the players hard to pick out, with Lee Sharpe remembering that Sir Alex Ferguson's first words as he fired up the hairdryer were: "Get that kit off, you're getting changed."

    They came back out in a blue-and-white striped kit and improved. But still lost.

    Reading v Liverpool (1500 BST)

    It always promised to be a passionate afternoon at the Madejski, and the away supporters are holding up banners both in support of the Hillsborough anniversary, and against former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

    Statisticians Opta: "10 - Liverpool have scored in their last 10 away league games, the longest current run of its kind in the top-flight. Guarantee."

  290. 1451:  
    Former Leeds manager Neil WarnockReading v Liverpool (1500 BST)

    "Last summer, Reading did not really invest. Their team spirit has given them a few good runs, but when it levels out, you would not give them a chance in the Premier League."

    Torquay P-P Barnet

    If any Barnet fans are heading back to north London, you'll just have time to have a brew when you get in before you need to turn around again.

    The fixture has already been rearranged, and will now be played this Tuesday, 16 April at 1945 BST.

  292. 1448: 

    The consensus across the country, perhaps apart from a pocket of optimistic Manchester City supporters, is the top-flight title is already heading back across the city to Old Trafford. So that leaves plenty of focus on the bottom of the table, where you would struggle to slip a cigarette paper between the teams battling to avoid the dreaded drop.

    MOTD's Simon Brotherton at the MadejskiReading v Liverpool (1500 BST)

    "Reading are not showing any of the signs of a side preparing to make a miraculous escape. It was a big defeat for them last weekend, at the home to Southampton.

    "Adam Le Fondre finds himself in his favourite position, on the bench, where he seems to thrive and be able to find goals. In terms of Liverpool, this season is all about progress. They need to be seen to moving in the right direction and I think they are. They are playing some lovely football and scoring lots of goals. I fancy them today."

    GET INVOLVED

    Benjamin Watts: "Can't believe Mauricio Pochettino has left Jay Rodriguez on the bench today for Southampton. He must be the most in form striker in the league right now."

    We believe that Rodriguez is ill Benjamin - clarification to come after full-time.

  295. 1444: 
    Southampton v West Ham (1500 BST)

    Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino says he is expecting a physical encounter from West Ham at St Mary's this afternoon but has urged his side to stick to their own game plan.

    "I think West Ham are going to be very direct, very aggressive and play the long ball to try and keep us in our half," said Pochettino,

    "We have to try and impose our brand of football, be dynamic and keep going forward. We also need to be aware that we will suffer against them when we don't have the ball."

    West Ham manager Sam Allardyce has challenged his team to all but secure Premier League safety with victory.

    "I know mathematically people will say we can still be caught and somebody could still overtake us, but I find it difficult to believe that anybody would," Allardyce said.
