Gomez earns Latics point

Jordi Gomez scored a free-kick to level things late on.

A late goal from substitute Jordi Gomez rescued Wigan a point from a Sky Bet Championship draw with Middlesbrough.

The home side had led through Grant Holt's early penalty, but found themselves trailing when George Friend equalised before half-time, with Grant Leadbitter putting the Teessiders ahead inside the final quarter.

Gomez, though, ensured a share of the spoils when he drilled home a brilliant free-kick five minutes from time.
