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.

Championship side Birmingham have added Liverpool winger Jordan Ibe to their long list of loaness.
The former Wycombe youngster has joined the midlands outfit until the end of the season.
Federico Macheda has joined Birmingham City on loan until the end of the season. Tom Thorpe and Tyler Blackett did the same earlier today.
