Swans and Latics’ Euro hopes dented

FOOTBALL: Swansea and Wigan suffered setbacks in their respective bids to reach the Europa League knockout stages last night. The Welsh side suffered a 1-0 home defeat to Valencia thanks to Daniel Parejo’s first-half goal, keeping them second in Group A and in need of a point in their final match to progress. Meanwhile, Wigan surrendered an early lead to lose 2-1 at home to SV Zulte Waregem and must now beat Maribor and hope the Belgians lose to Group D winners Rubin Kazan to advance.
