Millwall grabbed at their possible relegation lifeline by beating Wigan 2-0 in a dramatic win-or-bust encounter.

Goals from Jimmy Abdou and Magaye Gueye settled a bad-tempered clash which looks certain to spell the end of Wigan's stay in the Sky Bet Championship.

Both sides learned on Monday that Rotherham, the team directly above them just outside the drop zone, could face a three-point penalty for fielding an ineligible player.

West Brom face a fight from three other Premier League clubs to sign winger Callum McManaman from Wigan.

Latics boss Malky Mackay confirmed the Championship club had turned down the Baggies' second offer for McManaman, 23, this week but they are not the only top-flight club showing interest in the ex-Everton trainee.

Mackay admitted there were four Premier League clubs keepings tabs on McManaman, who is expected to be in Wigan's squad to face Huddersfield on Saturday after serving a three-match suspension.

Hull are one of the quartet of clubs as Mackay confirmed they have made 'an enquiry'. It's unsure who the two other clubs are.

Wigan have also reached an agreement with MLS side Chicago Fire to send Scotland international Maloney to the United States, while Ben Watson has joined fellow Championship club Watford until the end of the season.

Whelan accepted an aggravated misconduct charge and the 78-year-old has also been fined £50,000, warned as to his future conduct and ordered to undertake a mandatory education programme.

The Wigan chairman has seven days in which to appeal or accept the sanction, which would be suspended until after the outcome of any appeal or would begin immediately if he decides to accept the punishment.

The Wigan chairman made the remarks in a newspaper interview defending his decision to appoint Malky Mackay as the club's new manager. Mackay is the subject of an investigation into alleged racist and anti-Semitic texts sent while he was in charge of Cardiff.
