Well again it hasn't been thrilling - unlike the midweek game against Man Utd - but who cares? The chance for Maloney or McCarthy apart - I can't remember which - we have been comfortable and we could have scored two or three ourselves.
In one sense the goal was fortunate - Jarvis didn't intend to net - but in another it was exactly what the cross deserved. It was beautifully delivered by the much maligned winger and both Diame and Nolan were inches away from connecting. Had either done so, it would have been a glaring miss had the ball ballooned over the bar. True both missed, but the cross still bent inside the post, and despite Nolan's attempts to con himself onto the score sheet, the goal belongs to Jarvis.
Wigan's back line have been far more stretched than ours, and our penalty claim was much more valid than theirs. The only worry is Carroll's yellow and his inability to change his game. He is walking a tightrope and Captain Kev has already had a word, trying to calm him down. The last thing we need is for Carroll to see red and to be ruled out of two games.
As things stand, we are comfortably safe, but I won't relax until 40 points are on the board: Stoke, Sunderland and Newcastle are all winning, which is the Perfect Storm of results I talked about yesterday, should Wigan run out winners today and Norwich steal a winner against Reading in the second 45 minutes.
So far so safe, but it's not over until the Fat Sam sings!
