Rodallega seals Latics win

Published Add your comment

Striker Hugo Rodallega's second goal of the season was enough for Wigan to beat West Ham 1-0 at the DW Stadium and ease some of the pressure on manager Roberto Martinez.

The Colombia striker pounced in the 55th minute to stab home Jason Koumas' blocked shot and end a run of three successive Barclays Premier League defeats.

Prior to that the main point of interest had been the form of England goalkeeper Robert Green, who produced decent saves to deny Rodallega and Jordi Gomez in the first half.
