James McFadden's controversial penalty lifted Birmingham to the 40-point mark in the Premier League and piled on the relegation worries for Wigan at St Andrew's. Mario Melchiot, the former Birmingham defender, appeared to make no contact with winger Keith Fahey in first-half injury-time before McFadden converted the spot-kick. It means Wigan have now gone seven league games without a win but Birmingham can look forward with confidence to another top-flight campaign. There were seven minutes of injury-time after Trevor Massey, the referee's assistant, had to be taken of on a stretcher after he was struck in the face by the corner flag following a challenge by Liam Ridgewell on James McCarthy, but Wigan could not break through.
