Callum McManaman's quick-fire strike booked Wigan their place in the Sky Bet Championship play-offs by securing a 1-0 win that has left Birmingham City on the brink of relegation to League One.
McManaman struck with his fourth goal of the season - and his second in the last four games - after he caught Birmingham napping in only the third minute at St Andrew's.
But for Birmingham, only three years after winning the league cup when they beat Arsenal at Wembley, they are now staring into the relegation abyss following an 18th successive Championship home game without a win stretching back to October.
The final whistle is blown by the referee.
