Wigan Athletic manager Roberto Martinez admits his frustration following Sunday's 1-1 draw at Queens Park Rangers in the Premier League.

Wigan Athletic manager Roberto Martinez has admitted his frustration following Sunday's 1-1 draw at Queens Park Rangers in the Premier League.

Bobby Zamora was sent off for the home side midway through the first half before Loic Remy gave QPR the lead.

However, Shaun Maloney's free kick deep into injury time saw the Latics come away from Loftus Road with a point.

"It is mixed feelings," Martinez told BBC Sport. "Relief but frustration as well because that was an incredible chance for us to win away from home but we couldn't get it and that is frustrating.

"We couldn't take advantage of the man advantage and that is frustrating. We are a better side than that. We were cagey.

"We didn't use our advantage well enough. We allowed QPR to be very effective with their defending. It is disappointing to concede a goal in open play in the manner the game was going."

The draw has seen Wigan slip into the relegation zone on goal difference with seven games left to play.

Referee Phil Dowd instructs Bobby Zamora to leave the field moments after showing him a red card in the match against Wigan on April 7, 2013
