Everton frustrated by Latics
Wigan displayed unfamiliar defensive resilience to earn a point from a goalless draw against Everton at Goodison Park which left home fans deeply unimpressed.
Despite dominating for the majority of the game, the closest the Toffees came to making a breakthrough was when Tim Cahill's second-half header rebounded off a post.
Neither side has been particularly prolific this season but Everton created enough chances to have put the result beyond doubt and their failure to do so will be a concern for manager David Moyes.
Australia midfielder Cahill almost converted Phil Jagielka's 60-yard pass inside the first minute but was put off by Antolin Alcaraz.
Marouane Fellaini had probably the best opportunity, but he nodded over Leighton Baines' free-kick when unmarked, while Jack Rodwell could consider himself unlucky when his header deflected off Ben Watson onto the top of the net.
The match livened up after the interval but neither side could ultimately do enough to earn the three points.
Wigan's Ali Al Habsi was by far the busier of the two goalkeepers, palming away Steven Pienaar's long-range shot soon after the restart before clinging on to Jagielka's near-post flick-on of Leighton Baines' cross.
Louis Saha's backheel inside the penalty area teed up Cahill, but he screwed his shot wide of the far post, sparking a manic two-minute period when Everton should have scored at least once from four attempts.
Wigan then sensed their chance to nick something from the game.
Having soaked up an enormous amount of pressure, the visitors should have punished Everton with 20 minutes to go when Mohamed Diame was put clean through after a one-two with Hugo Rodallega but he delayed long enough for Jagielka to get back with a sliding block.
