Rodallega rescues Wigan

Published Add your comment

Hugo Rodallega rose to head Wigan to Barclays Premier League survival as Roberto Martinez's men rode their luck to extend their stay in the top-flight with a 1-0 win at Stoke.

Wigan looked dismal in a nervy first period in which Jermaine Pennant and Kenwyne Jones forced good saves out of Ali Al-Habsi in the Latics goal.

But a much improved second half performance was capped in the 79th minute when Rodallega jumped to meet a Mohamed Diame cross and head the priceless winner.
