Wigan snatches draw with 10-man Sunderland

A late equalizer from Antolin Alcaraz earned Wigan a 1-1 draw against 10-man Sunderland and took the shine off a scoring debut for Asamoah Gyan in the Premier League on Saturday.
Sunderland was made to battle against the odds from the 22nd minute when midfielder Lee Cattermole was red-carded against his former club after two poor challenges brought him as many bookings.
But Ghana striker Gyan, who joined from French club Rennes last month for a club record transfer fee in excess of 13 million pounds ($20 million), came on as a substitute to volley home in the 66th minute.
The three points slipped from Sunderland's grasp, though, when Alcaraz headed home in the 87th minute.
