WIGAN, England (AP)
Peter Crouch earned Stoke a third straight point in the Premier League with a late equalizer in the 2-2 draw with Wigan on Saturday.
The England striker scored from Jon Walters' cross in the 76th minute to deny Wigan a second victory of the season.
Shaun Maloney put Wigan ahead in the fifth minute from the penalty spot after Robert Huth was adjudged to have handled but Walters converted his own penalty in the 40th.
The home side reclaimed the lead four minutes after the break through Franco Di Santo's low finish, his fifth goal in his last eight league matches.
Crouch then equalized and debutant Charlie Adam nearly earned all three points for Stoke late on, a day after joining from Liverpool.
